The SSD Solution

THE SSD SOLUTION PC problems - we've all experienced a great deal of frustration when our PC doesn't do what we need it to do. PC manufacturers are debating what the next generation of PCs will look like in order to give us the performance that we want. New storage technology – in the form of Solid State Drives - can go a long way in bridging the gap from the PCs of yesterday to the PCs of tomorrow. What We Want From Our PCs SPEED 18% of people who recently purchased a We live in an Always On, Always tablet said they did so Connected world. When we need to because it's quicker to access information, we want to do it start than a desktop or quickly, and we have little patience laptop. for boot up times. RELIABILITY The #2 most common problem people report And because of our need to access with their laptops is with information fast, we don't have time for the hard drive, which is our devices to crash. We need them to prone to crashes and be reliable, so we can do what we need failures. to do, when we need to do it. PORTABILITY A hard drive accounts for about 10% of the weight of an ultra-light notebook. But if you We're constantly on the go - and don't want heavy PCs slowing us swap out the hard drive down. We expect our devices to with an SSD, only about 1% of the weight will keep up with us. come from the SSD. The Future Is Bright THE GOOD NEWS? ADVANCED SSD TECHNOLOGY! NO MOVING PARTS In addition to a controller and firmware, a typical SSD uses NAND flash memory. This is a non-volatile type of computer storage chip that can be electronically programmed and erased. Unlike hard drives, SSDS don't have moving parts - simply put, a hard drive requires mechanical movement to get information. This is one of the reasons why SSDS are faster, more reliable and lighter than hard drives. SSDS ARE FAST That's faster than the time it takes to tie your shoes SSDS are 8 times faster than hard drives. 8X FASTER An SSD takes only 6 seconds to write 4,000 files and only 10 seconds to write a full HD 1080p 5GB movie. A hard drive can take up to 49 seconds to write 4,000 files and up to 47 seconds to write a full HD 1080p 5GB movie. SSDS ARE RELIABLE With an SSD, a user can write 40GB/day for 13.5 years before wearing out the drive - that's much longer and with a heavier workload than most of us would ever think of using! That's equivalent to saving 4,000 10MB PowerPoint files or 2,000 20MB JPEG images... every day! SSDS ARE PORTABLE SSDS are up to 10 times lighter than hard drives. OSS 25¢ A hard drive can weigh up to 99 grams. That's the equivalent of 17 US quarters. Compare that to a SSD designed for an ultra-light notebook, which can weigh as little as 10 grams. That's less than two US quarters and 89% lighter than a hard drive! PC Users Want SSDS Approximately 14 million SSDS will be purchased directly by consumers in 2013. These after-market purchases will allow users to upgrade the existing hard drives in their PCs. Worldwide SSD shipments are set to rise to 83 million 83 MILLION units in 2013.
