Disadvantages of HDD 

Even so, the hard disk is still an outdated medium, and it is safe to say that it will soon become completely obsolete, as a floppy disk used to be. This is due to the deficiencies of the HDD, forcing manufacturers to look for better ways to record, read and store information.


Speed

Compared to solid-state drives, hard drives process information much more slowly. The problem is that the read / write speed of a hard disk depends directly on the speed of the spindle, while an SSD has no mechanical part, so the maximum read speed of the most expensive models reaches two GB.


Fragility 

Earlier, we talked about how the hard drive works. The position of the writing heads is designed with such precision that even a slight physical hit (for example, a solid-state drive does not have this disadvantage and does not fear a hit more than any other microcircuit with chips. 

Like all mechanisms, HDD in Operation Noise. It makes little noise, but the constant creaking of many users is annoying. There are no moving elements in the SSD design, so it does not make any noise. 

In summary, it can be said that, despite all the advantages, hard drives will soon be a thing of the past. This will happen as manufacturers find a way to lower the average cost of solid-state drives, making them more affordable for the average user. Manufacturers offer external media with additional features and capabilities. This means that they are fully functional, and data can be easily transferred between home and work. 

It's hard to imagine, but until a few years ago, hard drives didn't have a lot of storage space. It was not until 2006, thanks to the development of new recording technologies, that it was possible to produce discs with a capacity of more than 1TB. 

Manufacturers are constantly looking for new solutions to convert conventional hard drives (HDDs) into big data storage media.


Noise

Like all mechanisms, the HDD emits noise during operation. It makes little noise, but the constant creaking of many users is still annoying. There are no moving elements in the SSD's design, so it doesn't make any noise. 

In summary, it can be said that, despite all the advantages, hard drives will soon be a thing of the past. This will happen as manufacturers find a way to lower the average cost of solid-state drives, making them more affordable for the average user.
