The problem with Hard Drives is that you CANNOT trust them. Why you ask? Well inside those square boxes are several moving parts running at 5400rpm to 15000rpm with a read/write head NANOmeters above the surface of the platters. (The platters are what actually contain all your data.)
BAM! OUT OF NOWHERE!
SSD (Solid State Drive) is a drive that has no moving parts. No way...! Yes, way! What does this mean? It means that instead of having all these moving parts inside a tiny accident waiting to happen, you have memory chips, similar to a RAM stick or a Flash Drive. This allows your computer to find data that it's trying to access 1000 times faster. For example, Let's say your computer used to take 5 minutes to boot up before you could realistically use or do anything. Imagine it now only taking 10-20 secs! Even if you calculated how much time you would save you in a year alone. 5 minutes x 365 days = 1825 minutes. That's 30 hrs a year! Think about employee's or your kids that are working on homework or just doing anything on a computer! That's insane! Time is money and who wants to spend their life on a computer waiting for things to load? Nobody! Everything will be faster from accessing the internet to opening your Word, Excel or PowerPoint documents, playing games, accessing e-mail... You get the gist.
