DOUBLE DISCOUNT TODAY ONLY! Save $60 and get a 120GB OCZ SSD for $79.99

14 June 2012

It's all I need, to get me where I'm goin'! Speeeeeed Demon! Pick up this little speed demon for super cheap. The 120GB Solid State Hard Drive was $139.99 and is now $79.99 after a $15 mail-in rebate and a $45 discount.

If you know what the big deal with SSD is, you don't need to go much further than that link up there. Buy one, be very happy.

If you don't, Samsung has put together a very nice list of the top 10 reasons SSD beats a traditional HDD.

  1. Speed Up Your Boot-Up
  2. Zip through File Searches
  3. Trim File Transfer Time by Almost a Third
  4. Start Applications in Seconds
  5. Double File-Compilation Power
  6. Cut Downtime by Half
  7. Reduce Power Consumption
  8. Master Multitasking
  9. Cut Video-Editing Time
  10. Take it Anywhere

I'll let you in on a secret about this list. It's only a three item list. Everything on here except for item 7 and 10 are the same. The list should read as such:

  1. It's fast
  2. Reduce Power Consumption
  3. Take it Anywhere

SSD (Solid State Drive) means there are no moving parts. It's just a bank of memory chips. That means it's fast. As for the other two, the low power consumption is pretty straight forward. It doesn't have a motor spinning a metal disk so it uses less power, the last one is again due to no moving parts. If you use your laptop anywhere that it might be dropped or vibrated a lot, there is a chance the moving parts will break. The SSD has no moving parts so there is nothing to break.
