Yes, life has been hard for us Queenslanders last year, and it seems that with this Covid-19 it will be yet another challenging year in 2021. As a small business owner ourselves, we understand the challenges at hand, we too live it.
As a sign of appreciation for all our valued customers, we’ve been sharing great insights so that you can prolong the life of your computer, laptop device so that household budget can be kept in checked.
Today, we’re going to show you simple, cost-effective technique for upgrading your laptop or desktop computers through upgrading your Hard Disk Drive (short for HDD).
In the circles of computer repair technicians, CPU is known as the brains of a computer device, however, we here at The Electronic Fix believe that its the hard drive that functions as the brains of a computer device. Why?
A hard drive is the hardware component that stores all of your digital content. Particularly the operating system (Windows, macOS), and as you can agree, without an operating system, how can anyone use a computer, laptop or even tablet devices. Basically, hard drive not only has installation of an operating sytem, it also stores your documents, pictures, music, videos, programs, application preferences, and anything else you store on your laptop computer. Hard drives can be external or internal.
Many experts will tell you that upgrading the hard drive in your personal computer or laptop is a great way to revive your user experience without having to splurge $$$ on a new device. Hard drives are also very easy and quick to get installed and impact various aspects of a laptop’s performance from speed to energy efficiency.
Today, there are 2 unique new hard drive types available on the Australian market. 2.5 Solid State Drive (SSD) and M.2 Solid State Drive (SSD). Both of these have similar performance specs and price ranges. What makes these new types SSD’s better is that they do not have moving parts like the older types of HDD. Because SSD’s has integrated circuit assemblies to store data persistently, typically using flash memory. Making them very fast and reliable upgrade option.
Here are a few key advantages of upgrading your hard drive and subsequently increasing your laptop’s performance and lifespan.
Gotta a Need For Speed?
Speed is the first thing you will see an improvement in when you invest in a new hard drive upgrade. Although newer models of laptops tend to have larger capacity socket for hard drives, most laptops are designed to be compatible with new SSD’s. Not to mention that a new, more powerful hard drive means a lot more storage capacity and processing power which means you can download and store more files as well as keep several software running simultaneously.
SDD’s are Energy Efficient
Most laptops are not known for their energy efficiency. Even brand new models cannot last beyond a few hours of operations but a more powerful hard drive certainly changes the way the laptop consumes power. This comes with many obvious benefits such as having to charge the laptop less often and getting more use out of your device when you are on the go mobile and need to keep working. Also, many hard drives on the market in 2021 can guarantee at least 40% better energy utilisation.
Laptop Upgrades are a Reliable Solution
The older a laptop gets the less reliable it becomes for storing data and it continually accumulates extra data every time you download or click onto a website that normal operations becomes much slower as the laptop gets used over time.
New hard drives or laptop SDD upgrades in Brisbane mean that the data you need access to all the time (as well as software you use regularly) can run smoothly without lag. Not to mention that there is a preventative aspect to it if you change your hard drive before it fails causing data loss which oftentimes happens with older well-used laptops. Keep in mind that we also offer Hard Drive Data Recovery in Brisbane Australia.
Fan Noise? Quite
Older laptops with worn-out hard drives heat up easily as well as cause irritating noise coming from fans whirring. This has a direct impact on the processing power, speed, and other functionalities of the laptop. With a new SSD hard drive upgrade, you can rest assured that your laptop will be very close to functioning as new with no noises and visible slowdown. Because SSD’s compared to HDD’s work differently due to design of internal components of these drives.
The Perfect Solution is Upgrading to Solid State Drive = SSD
A solid-state drive works like a standard hard drive but it stores data better and is a much more reliable option for the purpose of upgrading because of its flash memory. It works like a large memory stick and aids the laptop in picking up a lot more speed. SSDs are also known for their non-volatile memory capacity which means data loss or irretrievable data loss is quite rare.
SSDs further contribute to speed in that they are considerably faster in starting up than any traditional hard drive even that of a newer model of laptops. Lastly, they consume much less battery than a regular hard drive.
In fact, the gains in performance will be quite evident as soon as we upgrade your laptop with a new SSD. Furthermore, costs of upgrading laptop hard drives is fairly affordable in 2021. For example: purchasing a brand new laptop could set you back between $1000 to $3000 depending on your requirements, and yet, laptop solid state drive upgrade can be as low as $200 to $400.
