Fremantle Bentech Computers Solid State Drive

At Fremantle Bentech Computers, we offer a faster and more convenient storage device for you to store and use data on your laptop or computer.

Solid State Drive vs Hard Drive


Solid State Drive
A solid state drive is a storage device which keeps data on it even without the power switched on. It is made up of interconnecting flash memory chips. A solid state drive can be installed directly on the systems motherboard, or it can be slotted into a laptop or computer.

A solid state drive is powerful and more reliable than USB thumb drives. It loads your system, stores applications and stores files.

Speed
A PC that has a solid state drive installed in it will boot up in a split second. A computer or mac with a solid state drive boots much faster than a hard drive, it loads and enables the applications to work faster and also transferring files is much faster too.

Maintenance
Solid state drives can’t be fragmented, meaning the data is not read in a scattered-like fashion. There are no moving parts, which means the data can be stored anywhere and therefore this naturally makes the solid state drive faster than the standard hard drive.

Durability
If a laptop or computer, which has a solid state drive installed in it, has been handled roughly the solid state drive will still work.

Size
There is no limit on the shape and size of a solid state drive and they can fit into slim laptops.

Noise
Solid state drive’s make basically no noise at all, since they are not machine-driven.

Hard Drive

A hard drive is a storage device which keeps data on it even without the power switched on. It consists of a metal platter, magnetic coating, rotating disk and other moving parts.
It stores and accesses data from the motion of the connecting parts.

It loads your system, stores applications and stores files.

Speed
A hard drive takes some time to load up a computer and is slower than a solid state drive.

Maintenance
Hard drives tend to scatter data on the rotating disk which slows down access to the applications and files and requires maintenance or what our tech guys call “defragmentation”.

Durability
If a laptop or computer has been handled roughly or there was a natural disaster such as an earth quake, the performance of the hard drive could be adversely affected and they could lose their data.

Size
Hard drives have a limitation on production size and shape. Therefore they cannot be slim enough for the latest paper thin laptops we see today.

Noise
With the rotation of the disk in the hard drive, there is noise associated with the motion. The faster it spins, the louder it gets.

So what’s the verdict? Solid State Drive’s rank the best in storage devices due to their ideal performance. They have jaw-dropping speed with booting up your computer, running programs and accessing files compared to a hard drive. They are durable and least likely to break from rough usage. They are slim and can fit into the latest paper thin laptops. They make barely any noise, and don’t require maintenance.

Solid State Drives are an awesome upgrade to any hard drive.

So what are you waiting for? Come into Bentech Computers today and snap up this awesome technology.
