Large Capacity - Ultra Fast SSD

by Paul Racecar on 7/28/2013

The benefits of a solid state drive (SSD) are well documented - faster start ups, cooler running, more reliability. But the cost has been prohibitive until now. OCZ is known for their Random Access Memory, and I have 16 gigs of OCZ in my computer already. They're one of the best. So I was amazed to see the price of this high capacity SSD for under $500. At this price point, it's a no-brainer in my opinion. I replaced a 10K 300 gig conventional HD with this OCZ SSD, and the start up time for my computer is vastly improved - seconds instead of minutes. The daunting part is the transferring of all the data from the old drive to the new one. HOWEVER, that part is now made easy by a program by Paragon called "Migrate OS to SSD" Just install this program onto your current HD, attach the SSD and let the program do all the work. You're done in about 20 minutes. Painless!

The SSD Advantage

Whether you're refreshing an older laptop or trying to maximize the potential of the latest platform, SSDs provide substantial benefits over traditional hard drives.

SSD speed 

Greater Durability

Solid State Drives feature a non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards, shock resistant up to 1500g. Hard disk drives consist of various moving parts making them susceptible to shock and damage.

Faster Performance

SSDs have 100 times greater throughput and instantaneous access times for quicker boot-ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives. HDDs can only access the data faster the closer it is from the read/ write heads, while all parts of the SSD can be accessed at once.

Less Power Consumption, Silent Operation, and Lightweight

SSDs use significantly less wattage at peak load than hard disk drives--less than 2W versus 6W for an HDD--delivering longer battery life in notebooks, less power strain on system, and a cooler computing environment. With no moving parts, SSDs run virtually silent in your notebook or PC case to eliminate distracting noises during gaming or entertainment. And SSDs won't weigh down your laptop, netbook, or tablet PC when you're on the go.


SSDs run much cooler than hard disk drives....

...and much quieter, too.
