Why Upgrade to SSD? April 7, 2020

Overlea, 14
Why Upgrade to SSD? , 14, Maryland

For over 50 years, hard disk drives (HDDs) have been the primary technology used for data storage on PCs. However, solid-state drives (SSDs) have recently gained traction, and many users are having computer service technicians upgrade their systems. Here are a few reasons why. 

3 Benefits of Upgrading to SSD

1. Faster

Compared to HDDs, SSDs are far quicker at downloading, reading, and writing data, improving computer performance. The extra speed is particularly useful when transferring large blocks of data.

2. No Moving Parts to Worry About 

HDDs have a variety of components, including the platter, spindle, read/write arm, and actuator. If even a single part breaks, the entire system won’t function properly. SSDs, on the other hand, don’t have any moving components, making them less vulnerable to damage from drops or rough handling. In particular, SSD technology is useful for external hard drives, as these need to be portable and durable.

3. Less Noise, Heat & Maintenance

HDDs have parts that spin while in use, creating bothersome sounds that make it difficult to work. Additionally, the moving components generate heat that will wear out the system over time, decreasing the life span. SSDs, on the other hand, don’t create sound and generate less heat, improving performance and efficiency while preventing premature breakdowns. Finally, this technology requires virtually no maintenance, especially compared to HDDs. There’s no need to turn down the spin cycle or shut off the drive after you’re done using the computer.
