 SSD or Hard Drive? Which one is better?

SSD which stands for Solid Stored Drive and HDD stands for Hard  Disk Drive. These two drives are used for store files on computer storage. Here we will discuss elaborately whether SSD or Hard Drive which is better for store user files.

Currently, the hard disk is being widely used as computer storage. The computer’s operating system and other user-files are stored in it. The price hard disk is relatively low and its speed is a little less. So to get more speed, many of them use Solid Stored Drive (SSD) storage. These are the hard disk’s alternative storage devices, SSD Storage is full of solid-state drive.

Hard disk drives contain many magnetic coating plates that work around and the special read-write head transmits data to these metal discs or plates.

On the other hand, there is no rolling part in a solid-stored drive or SSD storage. It has interconnected flash memory chips, in which the data is depot electronically. No magnetic power is required. There is no read-write head.

So let’s see if you decide which computer to use on a hard disk or SSD Storage?


The hard disk has a rotating part and hence the head will take some time to collect data from its exact location. HDD access time is a bit more than the SSD due to these other technical reasons. In other words, hard disk works a bit faster than SSD Storage. In my personal experience, the SSD PC was launched in 7-10 seconds, where the hard disk’s PC took at least half time to start. After that, the PC starts and the startup programs take more minutes to get ready. In the SSD file, read-write time is average between 200 and 550 megabytes per second. Hard Disk Average Read-Write Time 50 to 120 Mb / s.

If you add an SSD (at least as a system drive) to a hard disk, you can get at least twice as much speed as you can before. Compared to the hard disk, the speed of Solid Stored Drive seems to be the sky-like difference. So if you want the speed on the PC, SSD will be your best choice in the storage.


It is known that the SSD Storage device is more stable than the hard disk. Therefore, SDD further ahead of stability.


The SSDs currently available for laptops do not usually have more than 1 TeraBat. SSD is available for desktop with a maximum of 4 terabyte capacity. On the other hand, the hard disk drive capacity is much higher. Maximum 2 terabytes for laptops and 10 terabytes of hard disk available for desktops. In the future, both capacities will increase further. If you need a lot of storage then you can choose the hard disk.
Sound and vibration

Due to the rotating parts in the hard disk, the noise from this is generated. But the SSD does not have any rotating parts, hence no word or vibration is generated from it.

Power consumption

SSD costs less power than a hard disk. Where SSD is 2-3 watt, there is a hard disk with 6-7 watt. Since the Solid State Drive costs less electricity, so the SDD storage will increase the battery backup of your laptop at least 30 minutes.

The price

Surely an advertisement has seen “Things that are good, Prices are a bit more”. That’s why, as SSD is giving you so much benefit, so its price will be a bit more. The price of 250 GB SSD Storage will be 8 thousand rupees, where 500 GB hard drive drives will cost around Taka 3,500.

If you can increase the budget, then choose SDD storage instead of a hard disk. Some laptops offer SSD storage. If you buy them, you will not be able to buy the SSD at the extra cost, and the price will be much safer. Some such SSD laptops are Asus VivoBook S14 S410UN, VivoBook S15 S510UQ, VivoBook Pro 15 N580VD, ASUS ZenBook UX430UQ etc. You can get both SSD and hard disks in some models.

Compared to the hard disk, the cost of SSD is higher, as well as speed. If you have multiple drives installed on your PC, then you can use an SSD as a system drive, and a hard disk as file storage. And if there is only one place to drive, then if you take SSD according to the budget, the storage capacity will be less, but the speed will get very nice.
