Hi all. While doing a bit of research to respond to a question about SSD operation over on the ReadSpeed forums
https://forums.grc.com/threads/slow-ssd-up-front-improved-by-spinrite.362/ , I discovered a batch of YouTube videos related to understanding SSD operation. I decided to take them and put them in their own thread here for everyone to see. I find it useful to play informational YouTube videos at 1.5X or 2X speed to get through content faster. You can do that by clicking the gear icon on the tool bar.

Anyone is welcome to add to this thread. But, please keep it limited to the topic of SSD's and flash memory in general, as opposed to a specific SSD. That could include flash memory cards, memory sticks, or PCI cards. Please screen your videos before posting, and keep the language at a G or Everyone level. Some technical videos do have foul language and I'd like to avoid that.

Hope the info helps. See below.

May your bits be stable and your interfaces be fast. :cool: Ron
