SSDs use semi-conductor flash memory chips to store data so, unlike hard disk drives, have no moving parts. This makes them more mechanically stable and far less prone to failure. Additionally they make no noise and only use very little energy.
Rüdiger Theobald, Marketing Director for Verbatim EUMEA: “The new Verbatim 2.5’’ SATA-III SSDs are very fast and offer longer battery life, faster response, additional robustness and faster system boot up. The increased shock resistance of SSD technology makes them the ideal storage replacement in portable computers due to the fact that hard disk drives are more susceptible to shocks.”
