Some SSDs Can Lose Data After Just A Few Days In Storage

Solid-state drives outclass hard drives as a storage medium in almost every way: they’re faster, less fragile, and can store more data per square inch. But according to some experts, SSDs suck at long-term storage of information, thanks to one particular problem: temperature.


Samsung Launches External SSD

If you don’t mind waiting hours to fill a massive flash drive with files then by all means go and drop a few hundred bucks on a 256GB drive.

They boast sustained transfer speeds topping out at an impressive 433MB/s, and are finally available in larger 480GB capacities.


A Software Update Could Make Existing SSDs 300% Faster

Solid-state drives (SSDs) are already fast, in fact, a little too fast. That doesn’t mean we’re going to say no to even more performance, even if data transport protocols need to catch up. While flash memory itself continues to improve in durability, speed and density, there’s also work ongoing on the software side, with a team of researchers in Japan reportedly boosting existing drive speeds with a simple middleware change.


The World's First 1TB MSATA SSD: So Much In So Little

Is The Data On Your SSD Secure?

SSDs are wonderful things that take up next to no space and are incredibly fast to boot. But while most people understand the basics data security on HDDs, the same isn’t necessarily true of solid state storage.


This Samsung SSD Runs At A Blistering 3000MB/s
