The standard HDD (hard disk drive) has been the predominant storage device for computers (both desktops and laptops) for a long time. The main draw was the high storage capacity and low cost.
However, the SSD (solid-state drive) is a newer storage technology solution and is slowly replacing the majority of hard disk drives.
But what exactly does an SSD has to offer? What are its benefits?
Durability and resistance
SSDs don’t have moving parts, they’re more reliable and more vibration/shock-resistant than traditional hard drives.
They’re also more resistant to common drops, accidents, and wear and tear since they don’t have the small, susceptible parts of traditional hard drives
Without moving parts to slow your computer down, SSDs aren’t just faster; they’re ready to go when you are.
SSDs offer instant-load performance, meaning faster boot times, faster application loading times, and better system responsiveness.
Efficiency and reliability
The solid-state drive uses flash memory to store data, which provides better reliability and efficacy over hard disk drives.
Moreover, since SSDs don’t have any moving parts, they use less power to function resulting in longer battery life for your laptop.
At iMend Ltd, we feel that Solid State Drives are possibly the most cost-effective way of speeding up your PC or laptop.
We recommend using an SSD as the primary driver for your operating system as they are faster, lighter, more durable, and use less energy!
