Solid state  refers to an automated circuits that is created completely with semiconductors. The term Solid State identifies electronics like a transistor radio that utilizes semiconductors instead of vacuum tubes on its production. 

Latest technology today are constructed with semiconductors and chips. With SSD, it is about the reality that the main storage medium is within the semiconductors instead of a magnetic media like a hard drive. 

Given below the advantages and disadvantages of SSD:

SSD Advantages are :

1. There is no moving parts.

2. High-speed performance.

3. Start-up time and Disk read time is faster than the custom hard drives.

4. SSDs start and read data instantly.

5. No noise, compared with the custom hard drives.

SSD Disadvantages are :

1. SSD are a comparatively new addition in the computing game field. As with any latest technology, the kinks are still being ignored out.

2. Currently it has less shortage space than traditional hard drives.

3. SSDs have been slow to catch on is that most of these new drivers have slower write speeds and limited write-cycle lifetime.

4. SSDs write cycles are more limited.

Thank you.

Dear User,

They are indeed many advantages you can have if when you replace you HDD with SSD.

Here are few advantages you can get from SSD,

1. It uses less power draw

2. Around 22 seconds boot up time.

3. There are no moving parts. So less noisy

4. Produced heat is so little

5.File Copy / Write speed is above 200MB/s

6.30% faster than HDD

7. Safe from magnetism

Also some disadvantages of SSD,

1. Cost is a little higher than HDD

2. Capacity issue. Typically not larger than 250gb for notebook size drives

3. Failure rate of 2.0 million hours since HDD only 1.5 million hours

you can replace your HDD with SDD . and it is a good move.

Thank you
