Default DUH! News of the Day: Corsair SSD vs. Seagate HDD: Do SSDs Prevail?

As we've found out over the years, SSDs are great for some things while HDDs are good for others. In a way, we have a polarization on the market - from one side, SSDs offer tangible increase in your work speed, while on the other - HDD gives you that capacity for all the files you will acquire. In an ideal world, combining both fast HDDs and SSDs results in one killer storage solution. Selecting between the two used to be a no brainer for us, given that all MLC-based SSDs suffered a performance decrease over the course of time and would end up slower than the regular hard drives. The SSD industry finally resolved that issue as Corsair supports TRIM with their new line of SSDs, so other than that - we have absolutely no problem recommending that you get Solid State Drive technology. Just make sure that you’ve got the latest firmware and that you’ve got a nice HDD or two around for media storage to save space for your applications and games.
