Check out MaximumPC’s “How to Buy a Hard Drive: An Essential Guide” by Loyd Case. It’s a great story that not only discusses the drive types including HDDs, SSDs, and Solid State Hybrid Drives (SSHDs) – and the technologies that make them all work – but it also covers selecting the right storage for your particular application environment. From a basic office setup, laptop upgrade, digital media center, or gaming rig, MaximumPC examines these different storage needs, and then makes suggestions that factor in the combination of price, capacity and speed.
Seagate also recently did its own comparison demos between HDDs, SSDs and SSHDs at its booth at the Flash Memory Summit. If you haven’t had a chance to view that video yet, definitely also check it out here.
