Solid-state drives have been around in one form or another for quite some time, but it’s only in the last 18-24 months that they have really started to come into their own for mainstream consumers and enthusiasts. In fact, 2009 could be viewed as the year that SSD really ‘arrived’, and 2010 is going to be even better.
The interest and excitement surrounding solid-state drives is well-founded, because they have the capability to totally transform your PC’s performance. That may sound like a bold statement, but replacing your conventional, mechanical hard disk drive with a Corsair Performance Series or Extreme Series solid-state drive is one of the most beneficial upgrades you can make, right up there with a new CPU or doubling your RAM.
