The SSD Performance Boost

Community Manager



Have you been frustrated by a slow computer? Have you turned on your computer, went and got a cup of coffee, come back and still have had to wait for your system to load? Do you want to optimize your computer and don’t know where to go from here? The good news is that it’s not necessarily your whole system causing the issue, it’s most likely your hard drive slowing you down. Upgrading your SSD might just be the easiest and most cost-effective way of breathing new speed and performance to your system.  You can even install it yourself.


How much of a performance boost are we talking about? With an SSD upgrade your system will start in seconds. It’s about 20 times faster than a typical hard drive. This means faster boot times, files will load almost instantly, and you will see even the most demanding applications have unmatched performance.  This is because SSDs do not have moving parts that must work to seek out data as a traditional hard drive does. These moving parts mean that tasks like booting your computer and saving files will take much longer. Instead of minutes to open your software, it will take seconds.  An added benefit to no moving parts is that SSDs are much less prone to failure.  More info on the differences between SSDs and hard drives can be found in the article here.


Your system’s increased performance means you in turn will increase your performance. Waiting on a slow system can make completely even the simplest tasks a head ache.  Those that multi task at work and at home, or game, don’t have the time to wait on a slow computer.


We have an SSD information guide here that will help answer any more questions you may have about our SSDs and how to install.  Once you upgrade your system to an SSD you will be amazed by the extra time you add to your day and the overall performance boost. It will be like you have a whole new computer at a fraction of the cost!
