Major Speed Gains From an SSD Drive
Issues With Traditional Drives
When a computer starts to slow down, there are several possible reasons. The most common is the hard drive beginning to degrade. A standard hard drive is mechanical, with spinning disks and moving read arms. These disks spin at over 5400 rpm.
Over time, parts of the hard drive can become worn or damaged. Replacement of these drives, on a like for like basis, will help restore the computer back to its original performance speed. However, a new kid is on the block and rapidly replacing these traditional drives with new speed and efficiency.
SSD Drives (Solid State Drives) are digital hard drives, with no moving parts or heat generation and have several advantages over the traditional drive.
- Not susceptible to magnetic damage
- Up to 5 times faster read / write times
- No noise or heat
- Not affected by movement
