Dumb question here. What is an SSD? I've never heard of them and I'm up on gadgets!

This is awesome but I like the thumb drives more, although they are probably priced similarly to the Solid State Drives (SSD) the thumb drives probably won't download as fast. Still I attached current picing for USB3 thumb drives for those interested since no price was listed for the SSDs.

256GB- $769.00

128GB- $469.00

64GB- $259.00

16GB- $118.99

SSD = Solid State Drive

It's like a hard drive with no moving parts.
