SSD – Solid State Drives – are now a must-have for any computer user. Previously hugely expensive, they are now as cheap as chips. You no longer have any excuse not to use one as the primary drive in your desktop or laptop. We are specifying more and more of our refurbished computer systems with Solid State Drives (SSD) due to the incredible benefits. Here’s why…
An SSD has no moving parts like a traditional HDD. Access to any information on it is almost INSTANT. This means that your computer starts faster (seconds rather than minutes) and runs programs faster.
The improved data access capabilities of an SSD allow you to toggle multiple programs with ease. From backing up your data to running antivirus system scans to accessing apps, websites and playlists, an SSD enables you to multitask like a pro — with little to no lag time.
Since SSDs don’t have small moving parts, they require less energy to operate and can increase the life of your laptop’s battery. Desktops benefit too, with lower power consumption.
More Efficient System Cooling
Since SSDs access data using flash memory rather than seeking it out on a spinning platter like a hard drive, they’re able to maintain more consistent operating temperatures, which can help keep overall system temps down.
Since SSDs don’t have small moving parts that are easily susceptible to damage, they can be thrown around and still retain your important files and information. Designed to reliably store your data for years, SSDs offer additional shock and vibration resistance for travel-tested durability.
Better Gaming Performance
For gamers, the faster data access speeds of an SSD help enable faster load times, so you can spend more time playing and less time waiting. Many gamers love using SSDs because it means they’re a step (or a load) ahead of the competition, giving them an increased chance at first strikes and a more seamless gaming experience.
