Best SSD For Your Computer 2020.
An SSD or solid-state hard drive is a compact and blazingly fast computer hard drive, and are fast becoming very popular in the computer world due to their superior performance and small physical size, only 2.5 inch, and now they have come down in price too.
Compared to an electromechanical hard drive or HDD, an SSD has much quicker access times, no moving parts, are silent and are more resistant to shock. Selling at around three times the price of a mechanical drive they are still very good value for your money. A 1TB HDD is around £35.00 GBP and a 1 TB SSD can be bought for around 100 GBP.
Crucial MX 500.
The Crucial MX 500 SSD is a brand of Micron, one of the largest memory manufacturers in the world and is a great choice for any PC, whether you are building a new machine or looking to upgrade your existing PC. It will rapidly increase load times for your software.
The SSD does not weigh very much, only 100grams, and will decrease the overall weight of your PC making it easier to carry. It will reduce overall noise from your PC as there are no moving parts so no noise from the SSD.
It will also increase your PC’s performance quite considerably, you will notice this as soon as you press the on button and your PC fires up. If you have a resource-hungry program such as Nero or Photoshop, you will notice that it will start up in a few seconds rather than minutes.
It will make sense to upgrade to a solid-state hard drive as they are smaller, lighter and better than a mechanical hard drive and are, in my opinion, the way forward in the computer world.
There are other makes of SSD and all offer similar performance and these include;
- Western Digital
Whichever make that you choose the extra performance that you get will be very noticeable and you will enjoy a blazingly fast PC.
