What is SSD (Solid State Drive) - a Small Definition

SSD stands for Solid State Drive. Solid state Drive stores data in electronic circuitry that is built entirely out of semiconductors or microchips instead of moving parts like before in a Hard Disk. SSD is almost like USB memory stick but it’s not true, it’s the more advanced version of USB memory sticks, which can be used  in Laptop or Desktop like Hard Disk. The SSD is more reliable and faster than normal Hard Disk.
