SSD versus old style spinner drives
If your Laptop or PC computer is more than 2 years old, you may want to upgrade to a new style SSD storage device. Below will be detailed explanations of the difference, but I will give you a brief summary here. SSDs provide faster performance, higher durability, and greater efficiency. In part the main advantage is there are no moving parts in SSDs. We offer Hard Drive upgrade services. Many times this service will bring new life to older computers at a fraction of the cost of new.
SSD (Solid State Drive) Facts
- Storage Type: SSDs use NAND-based flash memory, which is a type of non-volatile memory that retains data even when the power is turned off.
- Speed: SSDs are much faster than HDDs at reading and writing data. Access times are nearly instantaneous, as there are no moving parts.
- Reliability: Without moving parts, SSDs are generally more robust and can withstand physical shock better than HDDs.
- Noise and Heat: SSDs are quieter and usually produce less heat since they don’t rely on mechanical movement.
- Energy Efficiency: SSDs are often more energy-efficient, which is important in laptops and other battery-powered devices.
- Form Factor: SSDs can be smaller and lighter, and they’re available in several different form factors, like 2.5-inch, M.2, and U.2.
- Lifespan: While SSDs are generally robust, they have a finite number of program/erase (P/E) cycles, meaning that they can wear out over time with extensive writing, although this is rarely a problem for average users.
