• Perfect for use in laptops and notebooks to replace your existing hard drive with a faster, quieter versionWhat difference does the read/write speed make?
The read/write speed of a hard drive is the main factor when starting your computer up. With a read speed of 500MB/s and a write speed of 500MB/s, this will speed up your start up time, when compared to using a 7,200 RPM and 5,400 RPM hard drives. This can make a real impact on your computer if you are wanting to improve its performance.
What other benefits does using an SSD have?
The failure rate of SSDs is less than that of a mechanical hard drive, by up to 33%. As well as this, this particular solid state drive is shock resistant, giving you peace of mind that if you were to drop your computer while carrying it, your data is always safe.
How easy is the SSD to install?
Installing a new hard drive can be a daunting prospect if you haven’t done it before - but it doesn’t have to be. Installing into a laptop or a computer is easy enough as long as you remember to use an anti-static wrist strap which prevents you from potentially damaging any smaller components within the computer. The SATA connection allows you to just unplug the pre-existing hard drive to which you can then plug the new one in.
