  • Equal (and gradually increasing) storage capacities offered (as compared to conventional HDDs) due to advancing semiconductor technologies
  • Less power consumption, both in active and idle modes, making SSDs ideal for portable, battery-powered devices
  • Reduced costs for cooling due to use of controllers with built-in power management capabilities
  • Small sizes and lighter weights
  • Increasingly faster read and write operations compared to HDDs, ideal for devices running multi-tasking applications.
  • Variety of available interfaces for connecting to various types of host devices
  • Available in both standard and extended temperature variants
  • Greater durability due to very high shock and vibration tolerances
  • Greater system reliability due to very high MTBFs
