Hard Drive Upgrade
Why upgrading to a SSD is more secure and reliable for your computer, and your business.
SSD vs. Hard Disk Drive
Hard Disk Drives (or HDD's) have a very slow read/write time *copying process is 30-150 MB per second*
HDD's need to be replaced at least every 3 years
HDD's are made completely up of moving parts. Moving parts = more power
With all those parts, comes more volume. HDD's are quite noisy
Dropped your laptop? You should probably get a new drive. HDD's are very fragile
Solid State Drives (or SSD's) have a much quicker read/write time *that same copying process is 500 MB per second, and can get up to 3,500 MB per second.*
SSD's can last up to 7 years for moderate PC users, but up to 10 with light use
SSD are completely stationary. No movement = no lost power
Once again, SSD's are stationary. No movement, no noise
Stationary. Stationary. Stationary. There's really no fragile part of an SSD, just don't step on it.
