What is the difference between internal SSDs and normal mechanical hard disks? What are the benefits of SSDs?

Category : Specification / Capacity / Performance
The main difference between SSDs and normal mechanical hard disks is the storage medium. SSDs use flash memory whereas mechanical hard disk drives use magnetic plates. Unlike general hard drives, SSDs contain no spinning disks, spindles, springs, gears, bearings or any other fragile components susceptible to mechanical damages. Additionally, SSDs offer faster transfer speeds, lower power consumption, superior durability, and silent operation.
