If you are still a little unsure about the SSD hype continue reading to find out more and see what we have to offer!
What is a SSD?
SSD is an acronym for solid-state drive, which is an internal storage device. This is what stores all your installed applications and files. Traditional hard disk drives (HDDs) use spinning disks while SSDs, in contrast, are built using NAND Flash chips and contain no moving parts. As a result, SSDs do not require any time to spin up or down, thus increasing speed and virtually eliminating seek times.
What are the benefits of using a SSD as my primary HDD?
Upgrading your computer with a solid-state drive is another way you can improve the overall performance of your system. SSDs offer faster read times then conventional hard disk drives, giving you a improved computing experience. With the use of the Data Transfer Kit, installing a new SSD is definitely something you can do on your own.
What is in the Upgrade Kit?
The Data Transfer Kit makes it simple to copy everything on your hard drive, including operating system, data, email settings and applications, to your Crucial m4. The kit includes the EZ Gig III Cloning and Imaging Software for Windows, ShirtPocket’s SuperDuper! for Mac, a USB to SATA cable and a Quick Start Guide. Upgrade your notebook drive in just three simple steps.
Can I use a SSD in any system?
Our SSD range can be installed into any system with a SATA interface connection and a storage drive form factor of 2.5-inch or larger. For Desktop PC’s, you will require a 3.5-inch bracket adapter.
What size SSDs do you offer?
Our solid-state drives are available in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB storage capacities. It is recommended to choose a size that will be sufficient for the amount of storage space you currently use on your existing system if you will be replacing your existing HDD. You can check your current usage within My Computer (Microsoft Windows) or the System Profiler (Mac OSX).
