The ZBOX BI322 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed amongst all few processor core computers that were released around the same time as the ZBOX BI322.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst similar types of desktop computer.
