Solid State Drives – Make The Upgrade

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving Holiday!

Check out the quick video below, which compares older ‘spindle disk’ hard drives, with faster Solid State hard drives. The author of the video narrates the difference in start times between a 5400 RPM, 7200 RPM and a Samsung EVO Solid State drive. If you are still using an older spindle drive in your machine, you are literally losing minutes to hours per day depending upon frequency of use and bootup and boot down times for the operating system and various programs you use.

What is even more impressive, and based on our experience as well, is the new life boost your machine can receive with an SSD hard disk.  Your operating system will pop to life, and be much more responsive.  Large program files, like Office 365, or even larger files generated as .pdf or CAD/CAM files will open much quicker, and on the whole, your machine will just feel quicker and more efficient. If you are thinking about this type of upgrade for your current fleet, Advantage engineers can help you make the right decision.  We have the experience in purchasing, installation, proper backups, complete restores, and elimination of unnecessary programs and files while the migration installs.

The end of the year is a great time to make hardware purchases.  Many SSD manufacturers are slashing prices, and drives are literally half the cost OR less than they were just one year ago.  And, the quality continues to improve in terms of speed and performance.
