A few weeks ago, Samsung contacted me to review one of their Solid State Drives (SSD). To be honest, I didn’t really know what that was, but my husband immediately said “YES” for me. And for all you other non-techie folks out there, an SSD is a data storage device that can be installed on a desktop or laptop as an alternative to a hard drive. An SSD will noticeably speed up your machine, make booting up fast, and use a lot less battery power. They also are much more durable than a hard drive, so are perfect for laptops that are often on the move. You can check out the top ten benefits here. When many people’s computers start slowing down, they tend to look for a new computer or an upgrade, but alternatively, upgrading a hard drive to an SSD is a better and (probably cheaper) option! As a blogger, I’m on my computer daily, editing photos, writing blog posts, reading blogs, being involved in social media. And making sure that my computer can react fast to my every need is a very important feature for my daily life. 🙂
So today, wait for it, I have a vlog for you. I’m sharing with you all how simple and quick it is to make the switch from a desktop hard drive to the Samsung SSD 840 Pro series. If a non-techie person like me can do it, you can do it. I may have had a little coaching from my husband on how to do it, but I think I picked it up pretty quickly. 😉 So grab some popcorn, turn up the volume, and enjoy watching me trying to act like a serious techie person…
Pretty easy to install, huh? I think so. I’ve already seen our computer move faster and now we have more storage for my excessive amount of photos too!
Have you heard of a Solid State Drive before? Do you use one?
