It takes longer for me to type and send a simple text message than it does for my computer to boot up. Thank you SSD.

They are only a couple seconds faster


Use the 'Really simplified way of thinking about things that think insurmountably faster than you do' chart.

The CPU is super fast, it thinks thousands of times more per second than the RAM usually does.
The RAM is really fast, it thinks tens of hundred-thousands more times per second than an HDD can; and only thousands of times more per second than an SSD.

That's actually wrong, SSDs fail less often than HDDs.

They fail less often, but have a shorter useable life.

That's talking about annual failure rates, not lifespans. The lifespan of a healthy SSD is considerably shorter than the lifespan of a healthy standard HDD.

Some people point that out in the comments on that article, too, btw.
