The benefits of solid state drives. Say goodbye to your hard drive!
With solid state technology, you probably won’t need it anymore. Designed to replace traditional hard drives, solid state drives (SSDs) use flash memory to deliver vastly superior performance and durability. Since there are lots of small, moving parts inside your hard drive — magnetic heads, spindles and spinning platters — it’s easy for things to go wrong. In layman terms, you could lose your important data. We have countless of customers who have lost their important school assignments and graphics design work because they did not backup and did not consider an upgrade. Unconvinced? We show you the benefits of solid state drives below.
Here are four reasons why you will want to consider an SSD.
They’re more durable.
Hard drives are mechanical. They contain small moving parts which continuously move creates heat, which is a leading factor in hard drive failure. As SSDs do not have moving parts, they’re more reliable and more vibration/shock-resistant than traditional hard drives. They are also more resistant to common drops, accidents, and wear and tear since they do not have the small, susceptible parts of traditional hard drives. If you happened to drop your laptop and it had an SSD installed, your screen would probably break before the SSD. That’s SSD durability.
Without moving parts to slow your computer down, SSDs are about 16 to 100x faster. SSDs offer instant-load performance, meaning faster boot times, faster application loading times, and better system responsiveness.
Since SSDs weigh less than hard drives, they’re more mobile-friendly and they help make your laptop easier to carry. With lightweight components and solid construction, SSDs are better suited for the rigours of constant travel.
They’re more efficient.
Since SSDs have no moving parts, they require less power to operate, which means you’ll get longer battery life. They’re even quieter, too.
