With faster boot-up time, file searches, app start-ups, and less downtime and power usage, you’ll know why Solid State Drives are the best choice, and where hard drives got their name.

Save precious work time with the power performance of a Solid State Drive (SSD)—and leave the office early.

1. Speed Up Your Boot-Up

SSD knows that «go» means «go». Just turn it on and begin working in less than 30 seconds.

2. Zip through File Searches

Remember the last time you attempted a simple e-mail search using a Hard Disk Drive (HDD)? Now imagine crunching that time so it's 5x faster. That's the power of an SSD.

3. Trim File Transfer Time by Almost a Third

Transfer and copy files thirteen minutes and five seconds faster than usual—just enough time to give you a head start on rush-hour traffic.

4. Start Applications in Seconds

Need to make a quick ten-second edit before meeting with a client? SSDs load programmes such as Adobe Photoshop and PowerPoint more than twice as fast as their HDD counterparts.

5. Double File-Compilation Power

Just because programmers sit behind a computer screen all day doesn't mean they're immune to slowness. An SSD boasts 2x faster file-compilation times than HDD.

6. Cut Downtime by Half

Routine maintenance tasks shouldn't disrupt your work flow. SSD cuts simple tasks such as virus scans by almost 50 percent.

7. Reduce Power Consumption

SSD requires less energy than a conventional HDD and can add an average of 30 minutes to battery life.

8. Master Multitasking

SSD smoothly handles multiple programmes so you can crop photos and load game maps nearly 3x faster than with HDD.

9. Cut Video-Editing Time

Render video file clips at over 30 percent faster with SSD. You'll be able to edit quickly and move on to your next project in no time.

10. Take it Anywhere

For work that needs to extend beyond home or office walls, SSD exceeds expectations in handling shock, vibration, and temperature extremes. Go anywhere with it.
