Speed up your PC with a SSD

Over time the performance of your laptop or desktop PC will degrade. There are many factors that can cause a PC to run slowly. This may include fragmented files, built up junk files, or the lack of modern hardware, such as a SSD.

A SSD (Solid State Drive) is a data storage medium that utilises flash memory. SSD’s offer higher performance, silent operation, and are resistant to physical shock due to having zero internal moving components . They are a great way to breathe new life into an older laptop or desktop computer.

Traditional Hard Drives include a spinning disk and read-write heads. These components are susceptible to damage if the device is moved or bumped too frequently when powered on. The nature of these hard drive means files are slower to access which affects performance.

SSD’s were once quite expensive. Over the years, as SSD’s have become more and more popular, the price of a SSD has decreased drastically. A SSD can be installed into most older devices and offer performance of a new device for a fraction of the cost.

If you have an older device that just isn’t performing as it used to, consider installing a SSD today!
