SSD vs HDD - Why Solid State Drives

Solid state drives provide substantial benefits over traditional hard drives. Whether you're refreshing an old laptop or trying to maximize the potential of the latest desktop, SSDs are the ultimate way to "feel" the difference in your everyday computing performance!

Still confused about all the hype surrounding SSDs?

What you do know is…

Your slow computer is driving you crazy

And it's most likely 'cause of this thing…

Your hard drive is slowing you down

And no, DON'T defrag your hard drive…

Don't degfrag you hard drive again

Instead…

Consider upgrading to

Wondering why SSDs are better than HDDs?

SSDs are…

 

 

DURABLE

Hard drives consist of various moving parts making them susceptible to shock and damage, while SSDs use a non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted on a circuit board and are shock resistant up to 1500g/0.5ms.

And because SSDs have no moving parts…

SSDs are faster than HDDs

While HDDs take longer to access data because of their need for the disks to spin, SSDs can be up to 100 times faster as data can be accessed instantaneously resulting in total system acceleration.

In fact… SSDs are BLAZING FAST

SSDs are way, way faster than HDDs

Which leads to…
a better more responsive PC gaming experience

Faster game load, installation, file copy and gaming

A faster system boot, file copy, virus scan and more…

Aside from better performance SSDs have other benefits

SSDs are more RELIABLE

One universally accepted metric for measuring SSD reliability is known as an “annual failure rate.” Exhaustive studies have shown that SSDs have an annual failure rate of tenths of 1%, while the AFRs for HDDs can run as high as 4 to 6 percent.
