Solid State Drive (SSD) vs. Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Performance Test

I don't post a lot of these videos, but I thought this was a very good comparison of a Samsung Solid State Drive (SSD) vs a standard Hard Disk Drive (HDD). SSD uses the same type of memory as portable flash drives. The SSD wins in weight, reliability, speed, and power consumption.

The problems with SSD, is that its more expensive and the available capacities are limited right now when compared to HDD.

While the tests look very convincing, I really have my doubts about it. Mainly because this video is produced by Samsung, I'd love to see the same test performed by an independent person/company.
