UPGRADE TO A SSD HARD DRIVE FROM £99.99
Want to speed up your laptop or desktop PC with the ultimate upgrade?
Now is the time to upgrade to a SSD (solid state drive) hard drive. SSD drives have no moving parts and have generally up to 20x faster access time than a standard (HDD) hard drive. This also means a cold boot time of as little of 20 seconds rather than the minutes you are used to with a standard drive.
Advantages of SSD Drives V's mechanical hard drives
Access Time: A SSD has access speeds of 35 to 100 micro-seconds, which is nearly 100 times faster. This faster access speed means programs can run more quickly, which is very significant, especially for programs that access large amounts of data often like your operating system. A typical HDD takes about 5,000 to 10,000 micro-seconds to access data.
Price: The price of a solid-state drive is higher than an HDD, which is why most computers with an SSD only have a few hundred gigabytes of storage. Desktop computers with an SSD may also have one or more HDDs for additional storage. HDD is considerably cheaper than SSD, especially for drives over 1TB.
TDR Computers can either clone your existing hard drive (subject to it being in good condition with no damaged sectors) straight to a new SSD so it looks exactly the same as your existing hard drive or complete a new clean install on a SSD giving you the opportunity to choose what programs you may want (and dumping the junk) for an all inclusive price from just £119.99 with a one year guarantee on the SSD.
Supply, fit, install or clone 120GB SSD: £99.99
Supply, fit, install or clone 240GB SSD: £119.99
Supply, fit, install or clone 500GB SSD: £149.99
Supply, fit, install or clone 960GB SSD: £199.99
This type of upgrade typically takes around 2 days to complete (subject to the condition of your existing hard drive.
Reliability: The SSD has no moving parts. It uses flash memory (like a USB memory stick) to store data, which provides better performance and reliability over an HDD. The HDD has moving parts and magnetic platters, meaning the more use they get, the faster they wear down and fail.
Capacity: Although there are large SSDs, anything over 1TB SSD is usually outside of most people's price range. Several terabyte hard disk drives are available for very reasonable prices.
Power: The SSD uses less power than a standard HDD, which means a lower energy bill over time and for laptops, an increase in battery life. With all of the parts required to spin the platters, the HDD uses more power than an SSD.
