One of our favourite repairs for a slowing laptop is installing a Solid-State Drive (SSD). It can transform your computer into a faster and harder working machine. Helping you to power through programs and data transfers with ease.

What is an HDD?

The Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is a storage hardware device in a computer where the operating system, software and most other files are stored. It is essentially a platter that has compartments to hold your data, it uses an arm that moves across the platter to get to the data that you have requested. The HDD is usually covered in a hard case to prevent damage as its very delicate.

What is an SSD?

Solid-State Drives (SSD) uses flash storage to store data such as the operating system, software and most files, it is controlled entirely by electronic transistors. As there are no moving parts, it can complete basic tasks like starting up a computer or opening a file much faster.

So why upgrade to the SSD?

The SSD comes with a number of benefits that will help to prolong the life of your computer including:

  • SSD’s don’t have any moving parts.
    This means that they are tougher, and make a great choice for mobile devices, especially those that tend to take a few more hits being carried from place to place. Great for those who work on the go!
  • SSD’s don’t use as much power.
    This can mean your laptop will benefit from a longer battery life, which means you can charge it less often, saving energy and keeping your battery healthy!
  • SSD’s work much faster.
    This means tasks like opening files or even just staring up your computer can take far less time, giving you more time to do the things you need, rather than waiting around.
