Bringing back an old topic.

SSD's are becoming more affordable then ever. A Desktop PC or Laptop shouldn't be without!

When it comes to durability, I can advise that it is more durable than a carrot! (Literally....)

No really, I had an SSD in a shopping bag with groceries containing carrots for a new cake we were going to bake.
Completely forgot my new SSD drive was in that bag. Feeling lazy, I chucked the bag out of our balcony (2 stories high)
The person at the bottom missed.. crashed on concrete.

The carrots did not survive.

However to my surprise the SSD was 100% functional!!!

Now I use SSD's everywhere. If somebody talks about SSDs... I just tell them they are more durable than carrots. Though for some reason they always give me a strange look ..   ???
