Upgrading your computer with a Solid State Drive (SSD) can make it feel like brand new again, probably faster than it ever was! Not only do you get much better performance, but longer battery life, increased reliability, and less noise as well
Computer Too Slow?
Is your computer taking forever to start and launch any programs? Can you make a cup of coffee while it’s booting? How about a few chores around the house?
Even brand-new computers can sometimes feel like they are slower than your previous one! Even in 2023, many brand-new computers still ship with hard drives - technology straight from the 1980s!
Older computers almost always have hard drives in them - and that's the major bottleneck. If you consider replacing your computer due to its performance, we have good news for you!
Upgrading it with a Solid-State Drive (SSD) can make your computer feel like brand new again, probably even faster than it ever was! Your computer will work exactly the same way but everything will start and load several times quicker.
Hard Drives vs Solid State Drives
Compared to traditional Hard Drives, Solid State Drives are much faster, more reliable, generate less heat and no noise at all. After upgrading, you’ll be amazed at the performance improvements and wondering why you waited so long
- SSDs perform up to 3 to 50 times faster than traditional hard drives. You get faster boot time, almost instant program starts, and better system responsiveness
- There are no moving parts. SSDs don't make any noise or vibrations. That whirring and clicking noise? Gone!
- SSDs aren't susceptible to drops, vibrations, and shocks - the leading cause of hard drive failures. SSDs are better suited for the rigors of constant travel
- SSDs consume less energy. You will get a better battery life and lower operating temperatures - important for laptops!
Why Would Anyone Buy a Hard Drive Then?
The points above probably look like a sales brochure - too good to be true! It really isn't. But the hard drives are still a popular choice due to the following reasons
- Hard drives are cheap. Compared to SSDs of the same size, hard drives will cost less than one third!
- Hard drives typically have larger capacities - common size is 1 Terabyte (1TB) but expensive enterprise drives can hold up to 12TB
- It's easier to recover data from a failed hard drive. Keep in mind, this is not an excuse to forgo backups!
- Because of their low cost and high capacity, hard drives are often used in cheap computers. Manufacturers save a few bucks and grow their bottom line
- Due to their higher red and write endurance, hard drives are a great fit for CCTV, network attached storage, backup drives and archival storage
