With a high capacity of 480GB, you will have plenty of room for running your operating system as well as storing your music, photos and videos on your PC. The 480GB memory capacity will give you enough storage for approximately 90 hours of high definition video or more than 260,000 photos so you’ll never have to worry about running out of space. As the drive comes with no moving parts it performs actions a lot faster than a mechanical hard drive. With a read speed of 450MB/s and a write speed of 450MB/s, the data transfer speed is increased nearly four times, making this a great replacement for your current drive.
How efficient is the SSD?
With no moving parts, this SSD consumes less power and produces less heat than a mechanical HDD. A cooler running drive allows you to comfortably use a laptop on your lap without the noise of the fan cancelling out the sound from your speakers. This lightens the load on your PC’s power supply and cooling system and lengthens your battery life.
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 per cent. This particular solid state drive is also shock resistant, giving you peace of mind that if you were to drop your computer while carrying it, your data is always safe.
