    Default Do SSD computer drives fare better in the DR?

    An SSD is is a data storage device that uses solid-state memory to store data. SSDs use microchips, and contain no moving parts, unlike a hard disk. Compared to traditional HDDs, SSDs are typically less susceptible to physical shock, quieter, and have lower access time and latency. SSDs use the same interface as hard disk drives, thus easily replacing them in most applications.

    Has anyone been using these drives in the DR? They are mostly used in laptops at the moment however one for the iMac just came out. I wonder if they work better in the DR climate because there are no moving parts to be affected by humidity?

    SSD are good to install and load the OS (Windows, Linux) but not for storage as they get are not good writing huge amounts of data on itself. They are really good and fast for applications that require fast reading (AKA Photoshop with large JPEG or RAW files).

    Regarding your question I don't see any differences in the usage in the DR vs USA or Europe. It is almost the same pattern unless you are taking into account heat, humidity, power cuts stuff which won't affect the hard drive.

    Thanks, I wasn't aware about the deficiency of writing to those drives.
