HDD full form Hard Disk Drive.

  • A computer hard disk drive (HDD) is a non-volatile memory device that controls reading and writing of the hard disk, which furnishes data storage. Hard disk drives are used as the main storage device in a computer.
  • HDD store operating system, software programs, video, picture, and other files, and can be found in desktop computers, consumer electronics and enterprise storage arrays in data centers
  • In a personal computer , HDD is found within the drive bay and is connected to the motherboard via a pata cable, SATA cable or SCSI cable. The HDD is additionally connected to an influence supply with power connector cable

 

 

 

Hard drive Total Parthdd detail

  • HARD DISK PLATTERS:
Platter is a circular, metal disk that is mounted inside a hard disk drive. Several platters are mounted on a fixed spindle motor to create more data storage surfaces in a smaller area
  • HARD DISK READ/WRITE HEADS:
The heads are an interface between the magnetic media where the data is stored and electronic components in the hard disk. The heads convert the information, which is in the form of bits to magnetic pulses when it is to be stored on the platter and reverses the process while reading. Each platter has two read/write heads, one mounted on the top and the other one at the bottom.
  • HARD DISK  SPINDLE MOTOR:
Spindle motor plays an important role in the hard drive operation by Running the hard disk platters. A spindle motor must provide stable running power for many hours of continuous use. Many hard drive failures occur due to spindle motor not Runing.
  • HARD DISK LOGIC BOARD:
Hard disk is made with an intelligent circuit board integrated into the hard disk. It is mounted on the bottom of the base casting exposed to the outer side. The read write heads are linked to the logic board through a ribbon cable.
  • HARD DISK DRIVE BAY:
The entire hard disk is mounted in an enclosure designed to protect it from the outside air,dust, and humidity. It is necessary to keep the internal environment of the hard disk free of dust and other contaminants.

SSD full form is Solid state DriveSSD detail

Means SSD made by only solid part not any mechanical part in this. The Oldest traditional hard disk made by mechanical part like head, spindle motor, magnet, disk, etc. So oldest traditional hard disk read write speed very pour than SSD drive.

 

  • SSD Noise
    • SSD have no moving parts so SSD generates no noise. all company SSD is noise less
  • SSD Heat
    • SSD are no moving parts and due to the nature of flash memory, the SSD generates less heat, helping to increase its life and reliability
  • SSD Weight
    • SSD drives are lighter than HDD drives because they do not have any moving part like  rotating disks, spindle motor, magnet etc. The moving parts of HDD make it heavier than SSD
  • SSD Temperature
    • Most SSD are running within a temperature range of 0ºC up to a max temp of 70ºC. SSD temperature range more high than HDD drive

    HDD have  moving parts so HDD generates  noise.

    SSD are no moving parts and due to the nature of flash memory, the SSD generates less heat, helping to increase its life and reliability

    HDD have  moving parts so HDD generates  heat

    Most SSD are running within a temperature range of 0ºC up to a max temp of 70ºC. SSD temperature range more high

    Most HDD are running within a temperature range of 5ºC up to a max temp of 55ºC. HDD temperature range low than SSD

    SSD uses flash memory to store data, which provide a better reliability and efficacy over hard disk drive. however SSD don’t have any moving parts, they use a less power to function. SSD power consume only 1w. Respectively, users can benefit from longer battery life for their laptops.

    HDD have  moving parts

    SSD Faster boot times, Faster application loading times, and better system responsiveness SSD has faster reading and writing speed.

    HDD Normal boot times, Normal application loading times, and Normal system responsiveness

    SSD Read/Write speed approx 300 to 600Mbps

    HDD Read/write Speed approx 80Mbps

    SSD weight approx 73gm

    HDD weight approx 365gm
