Toshiba SSD vs HDD Shake Transfer Test 0

Toshiba SSD vs HDD Shake Transfer Test

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSTodd was walking through the Toshiba booth when they saw this shake test. Basically the station was shaking a Toshiba SSD and HDD at the same time. The idea was to show how data works when the hard drive moves. Moreover, how the SSD drive performs better in this situation. If you have a notebook with a HDD, then you should really wait for the computer to fully go to sleep before putting it away. However, with an SSD drive inside, not only do you not have to wait, it even closes down faster.
