Why should I buy a solid state drive?
SSD drives are faster, more reliable and a lot more efficient than a mechanical hard drive (HDD). Durability and reliability are two things you can expect from an SSD. They are able to withstand knocks and shocks, making them ideal to use in laptops and netbooks. This doesn’t mean you can’t use them in computers - they provide a quick start up speed and a silent operation as well as being easy to install into your case.
How secure is the drive?
This solid state drive comes with AES 256-bit encryption hardware, the same as they use in banks and hospitals, which allows you to keep your data and personal information safe and secure from thieves and hackers.
What 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 550MB/s and a write speed of 350MB/s, this will speed up your start up time, when compared to using a 7200 RPM and 5400 RPM hard drives. This can make a real impact on your computer if you are wanting to improve its performance.
