Solved Is SSD really worth it? Tags: SSD SATA Storage Last response: February 25, 2011 8:41 PM in Storage Share polynick February 25, 2011 8:33:47 PM I mean really, whats the big deal... 1TB SATA- 8- bucks 500 GB SSD- $1400 makes no sense EDIT: $80 not 8 More about : ssd worth Best solution penguintech February 25, 2011 8:39:27 PM YES definatly worth it... depending on your situation though: SSD = Solid State Drive SSD is much faster because it has no discs and does not need to spin. Sata = Serial ATA Sata has discs and is measured in speed by the RPMs it spins said discs. SSD wont be destroyed by vibration and shock like a SATA drive would because of the lack of actual discs. to some it's a matter of need it ... and to some it's a matter of gotta have it.
