Taking a Closer Look at 2.5 SSD SATA

DE2TAPX7R-35000-2 - SATA - 2.5" SSD - 2TB - MLC

 

Despite being a legacy product, 2.5 SSD SATA drives are among the most popular drives on the market today. There are many reasons why 2.5 SSDs with the SATA interface are popular, including the variety of storage capacities in which they are available. Many devices that were originally designed with a 2.5 SATA HDD have been configured for use with a 2.5 SATA SSD. Those that have not could almost certainly benefit from SSD compatibility. Why are 2.5 SSDs with the SATA interface so popular? Here are the facts you need to know.

 

SSDs versus HDDs

One of the keys to the popularity of these SSDs is the preference for SSDs over HDDs. SSDs, or solid state drives, have become much more widely used than HDDs, or hard disk drives. This is particularly true with new product designs. There are a number of reasons behind the preference for SSDs over HDDs. First, SSDs don’t contain any moving parts like HDDs do, so they are much more reliable. HDDs store data on a spinning, magnetic disk, which is prone to failure. The lack of mechanical parts means that SSDs also work much faster than HDDs, which have to fire up the rotating disk for every operation. Lastly, SSDs are more tolerant of rugged operating conditions, including high levels of shock and vibration, as well as temperature extremes.

 

Devices That Can Use a 2.5 SSD SATA

Virtually any device that needs a high-speed, reliable storage drive can benefit from using a SATA SSD. The 2.5 SSD with the SATA interface is ideal for larger applications that have space for a drive of this size. If a smaller drive is needed, designers can get the same benefits from using an mSATA SSD, which is created for small form factors.

 

Customization Options for 2.5 SSDs

If you choose Delkin to manufacture your 2.5 SATA SSD, a variety of customization options will be available. These options include customized testing, special screening and conformal coating, and customized labeling.
