SSD, otherwise known as Solid State Drive, is very different from your regular HDD (Hard Disk Drive). Therefore, unlike ordinary spindle hard drives, SSDs have no mechanical parts at all. As you know, hard drives have an eddy current disk, which has a read and write head attached to a robotic arm, which is also called an actuator. SSDs, on the other hand, have a semiconductor memory that's as cleverly constructed as a disk drive, but uses integrated circuits instead of fiber-optic or magnetic storage media.
As people now increasingly need to exchange large amounts of data, people often measure the capacity of hard drives in gigabytes, and these are generally very large, so hard drives become the best choice for people. There are many computer DIY enthusiasts who may have a lot of unused hard drives, but most of these common hard drives are installed in the case, and because of the operating system installed, these drives are generally not easy to move. Let's talk about what is the role of the hard drive case? What are the differences between it and a mobile hard drive:

The role of hard drive cases


Although the replacement rate for computers is very low these days, many people don't have their first computer in their hands, because we use them so often or because they are almost obsolete, so they can't keep up and become what we see as old. Although these computers may appear to be "old", the hard drive inside them still serves its purpose and is still very useful as a storage tool.

In other cases, the computer is not too old, but the hard drive is not as good as it used to be, and many people will choose to replace it with a larger capacity hard drive. But what do you do with the old hard drive that has been replaced? This is where a hard drive caddy comes into its own, nowadays hard drive caddies are generally tool free to install, press and slide open, put in the hard drive and then snap it closed in a matter of seconds. The old hard drive can then be used as a portable hard drive!

SSD prices vs. mobile hard drive prices


Anyone who has ever bought a removable hard drive knows that a single one can cost almost $100. These are fast-paced times and hardware obsolescence has become rapid, yet our need for resources remains the same. Despite this many people still cannot accept such a high price.
Selore's Docking station includes not only the hard drive cage but also other interfaces such as HDMI and SD/TF reading ports for half the price of a portable hard drive! In terms of value for money, the selore docking station is well worth considering.

Transfer speed


Some people may doubt the speed of transferring files from a hard drive case, and nowadays hard drive cases are all USB 3.0 supported, and it can all reach 300Mb/s transfer speed, for example, if we want to transfer 1GB of movies, it can be done in five minutes.

Hardware protection


A hard drive caddy wraps around the hard drive from all sides and can effectively prevent damage to the hard drive from dropping the caddy. Some hard drive cases on the market are also equipped with drop and shock resistant cushions. There is not much difference between the three protection above and a certain hard drive or even better than a mobile hard drive, because you have to think that nowadays mobile hard drives are very delicate and compact in appearance, but once dropped and knocked down it is likely to cause varying degrees of damage to the hard drive.
