About this Report

This report is intended to assist buyers of solid state drives (SSDs). SSDs are data storage devices that use integrated circuits to store persistent data and incorporate no moving components. SSDs are useful for users that require fast access to applications, low latency, quiet computers or resistance to physical shocks. SSDs are often compared to hard disk drives (HDDs) due to their functional similarities, but they differ in performance, quality, reliability and price. This report largely focuses on negative-AND (NAND) flash-based SSDs, including enterprise flash drives. This report does not include standard flash drives, HDDs, storage area networks, dynamic random access memory (DRAM), synchronous DRAM (SDRAM), servers or compact disks.
