It's MUCH faster, but much more expensive.

I turned one into a 16 GB USB drive :P

what the hell does "solid-state" mean in this case?
Flash memory, instead of the regular platter technology that hard drives mainly use. You can drop it, and the data on the flash chip will be fine, and it's much, much smaller.

It's already been said, but tube hard drives are better.

Well, it's unlike RAM in that when the power goes off, the data stays, but it's the same technology, basically. So, saying "Hard disk drive" or "HDD" would be wrong, because they aren't on disks. But, it's basically the same principle as the memory in your computer, in that it's stored on memory chips, made usually by Samsung.

A normal hard drive uses a spinning plate with some kind of magnetic stuff I've forgot about to store data. The arms with the magnets hovers a few nanometers above the surface of the plate, and even the slightest contact might ruin it, which means that it is very sensitive to blunt force trauma to say it that way.
A solid state drive uses a technology similar to flash drives. I'm not sure how it works, but from what I've gathered it basically "flashes"/burns the data into something in a way, but this limits the amount of time it can be reused. Every flash based data storage unit can only add and remove data a limited number of times because of this, but solid state is a bit different in this regard though. And there is nothing new about the technology really. My father told about when he and his team (him being a electronics engineer, most of the rest of them being programmers) in the 80's used solid state cards to test hardware. Made stuff boot up in an instant, but didn't have that much room.

I was kidding. I was referring to the general consensus that tube amps are better than solid state amps. As far as my knowledge serves me, there is not a mass produced tube hard drive. Although it may exist...

Normal Hard Drives save data my recording it magnetically through binary encryption. By using flash, it is less damaged by physical abuse, and can be much smaller.

Tubes were used in the first computers, but they were bulky and not efficient.
