2.5in Solid State Disks (SSD)

Solid State Disks have a distinct advantage over standard 2.5in HDDs in that they are solid-state memory with no moving parts, and therefore not susceptible to mechanical failure as a result of vibrations.

Almost zero latency allows SSD drives to outperform the fastest of conventional hard-drives whilst drawing a fraction of the power.

With no moving parts they are completely silent and generate less heat, making them perfect for sound-sensitive projects.

No adapter is required - these drives are direct replacements or substitutes for standard 2.5in laptop drives, and are powered and connected in exactly the same way.
