SDHC Cards vs Hard Drive vs SSD

SDHC Cards vs Hard Drive vs SSD


  • SDHC cards offer cheap storage without the need to open up your laptop
  • Removable storage so you can take important applications with you
  • Fast SDHC cards have rapid data access times
  • Data transfer rates remain mostly constant


  • Your notebook’s built-in card reader might be too slow
  • Slower SDHC cards aren’t really fast enough
  • Even a fast SDHC has slower transfer rates than most hard drives
  • Real SSDs are MUCH faster … and MUCH more expensive
