So, how does an internal differ from a solid-state external hard drive? An internal SSD connects to your computer to function like a traditional hard drive. And it goes inside your device, whereas an external SSD, on the other hand, is connected outside via USB. In comparison to a regular HDD, you’ll usually find an SSD is much faster, as it has no mechanical moving parts and stores data via flash memory (rather than magnetic platters).
You’ll find plenty of internal solid-state hard drive choices here, from leading brands like Samsung . But what features should you look for? Compatibility with your device is vital, of course. You’ll want to select the right form and size, whether that’s a 2.5-inch (typical for desktop PCs and laptops) or an M.2 for ultra-slim devices. Hardware encryption is essential for peace of mind. And a warranty for a set number of years will also help put your mind at rest.
