                      It's actually the other way around.
                      Everything feels (and is) way and way faster on an SSD, than on an HDD.
                      People tend to call it 'bad', just because of its price, which is the only downside.

                      Mmm. We had a discussion about the two in class a few weeks back. A few of the guys were saying that they'd be more reliable than a hard disk drive since they're not magnetic and don't have as many moving parts, decreasing the likeliness of them failing. But then, by the books, my lecturer was saying that solid state drives are technically inferior, in terms of read/write speed anyway I think. But then, everything has its advantages and disadvantages I guess. I have yet to see a SSD in person, though.

                      I think this is a good article of the comparison between the two. Currently the only real disadvantage that SSD has over HDD is cost per storage space (basically, cost).
