More than 40x more energy efficient than a typical hard drive
Since SSDs access data on cutting-edge flash memory chips rather than on outdated spinning platters, they consume significantly less power than hard drives. Enjoy the ability to do more with longer battery life and experience a cooler, quieter system. Increase your laptop’s portability, worry less about finding an outlet, and boost your productivity.
More durable than a typical hard drive
Since SSDs don’t use moving parts that wear out over time, your photos, music, videos, and everything on the drive is less susceptible to a crash. Dropping a laptop with a hard drive may damage the small mechanical parts it uses to read and write data, and could cause the hard drive to fail. SSDs can sustain more physical trauma since they don’t rely on these mechanical parts.
Better value than a typical SSD
The Crucial BX200 leverages proven flash memory technology that’s been thoroughly vetted and engineered to extensive Micron quality standards. Upgrading to an SSD is one of the best ways to improve your system’s performance, and now the price per gigabyte makes it a great time to ditch your hard drive. Start getting more out of your storage.
