If you’ve heard much about computer hardware, then you’ve probably heard about SSDs. Solid state drives (SSDs) use flash memory to deliver dramatic performance gains compared to mechanical hard drives. Since SSDs don’t have small moving parts that are prone to failure, they offer a wide range of cost-effective benefits to nearly every computer user.

Compared to a hard drive, SSDs offer:

  • #1: Faster everything.

    Imagine clicking on a program and having it load immediately. That’s the power of an SSD. SSDs also enable “instant on” performance — the ability for your system to boot almost immediately. Since SSDs don’t have to mechanically seek out data on a moving platter (as a hard drive does), they help your system achieve instant-on performance.

  • #2: Seamless multitasking.

    The improved data access capabilities of an SSD allow you to toggle multiple programs with ease. From backing up your data to running antivirus system scans to accessing apps, websites and playlists, an SSD enables you to multitask like a pro — with little to no lag time.

  • #3: Increased energy efficiency.

    Since SSDs don’t have small moving parts, they require less energy to operate and can increase the life of your laptop’s battery.

  • #4: Better system cooling.

    Since SSDs access data using flash memory rather than seeking it out on a spinning platter like a hard drive, they’re able to maintain more consistent operating temperatures, which can help keep overall system temps down.

  • #5: Less fan noise.

    Since SSDs stay cooler than hard drives, your fan doesn’t have to work as hard, which means less fan noise and quieter overall performance. That humming sound you heard when using a hard drive? Gone.

  • #6: Increased durability and reliability.

    Since SSDs don’t have small moving parts that are easily susceptible to damage, they can be thrown around and still retain your important files and information. Designed to reliably store your data for years, SSDs offer additional shock and vibration resistance for travel-tested durability.

  • #7: Flexible storage.

    SSDs are available in multiple form factors, and some form factors (like mSATA) are able to plug directly into your system’s motherboard, allowing the drive to act as a cache drive or to work alongside your existing hard drive. What’s more, with a USB cable, you can use an SSD like a giant flash drive — just plug it in!

  • #8: Better gaming.

    For gamers, the faster data access speeds of an SSD help enable faster load times, so you can spend more time playing and less time waiting. Many gamers love using SSDs because it means they’re a step (or a load) ahead of the competition, giving them an increased chance at first strikes and a more seamless gaming experience.

  • #9: Easy installation.

    At DASH we take the hassle out of jumping to SSD technology.  We can simply ‘cone’ your existing Windows installation to the new SSD so everything is right where you left it.

  • #10: More time for what matters.

    Since computers are used to accomplish a wide variety of personal and professional tasks, the increased speed and efficiency of an SSD means that you’ll have the ability to get more done in less time. Life moves fast — your computer should too.
