Debunking Myths About Solid State Drive

If you've been looking for an alternative to your hard drive, you may have heard some horror stories about Solid State Drive (SSD). Let's clear the air with some myth busting. When you need to weed through the fact or fiction, here's the skinny on 5 myths about Solid State Drive.

1. Too Expensive: Once upon a time cost was a concern. Not so now. Like any new technology, when it first emerges, initial price is high. Over time, prices drop. So, where SSD is concerned, now is the future and upgrading to an SSD is affordable.

2. Too Hard To Install: If you have about 10 minutes to spare, can follow prompts to clone your old drive, and are click capable, you're good to go. Installing an SSD is relatively simple nowadays.

3. My Computer Isn't Compatible: If you have a modern laptop, desktop or notebook, it is, indeed, compatible. You can even convert some mobile devices like tablets or mini-notebooks.

4. It Will Let Me Down: SSDs are resistant to vibrations and shocks without losing data. That means incredible reliability. That's why smartphones and iPods use SSDs. Even military personnel deployed to desert regions find SSDs reliable despite the high-risk sand poses to sensitive electronics.

5. Not Enough Storage Space: Quite to the contrary, SSDs are available with more than 500GB of storage capacity. Use in conjunction with old hard drive storage and you're able to store massive amounts of data.

Client Reviews

“Great company with fantastic service! My laptop was causing me terrible issues and I was terrified that all of the valuable data that was stored on it was gone forever. I went to several different companies for help with no solution to my problem. I finally found Carolina Data Recovery and they were able to recovery all of my data that I thought I had lost forever. Friendly staff and great recovery time. I highly recommend this company! ”

“We had a hard drive failure at work, and we didn't have a backup. We went to Ron for a free analysis and he verified there was an issue within 15 minutes. We've never had to deal with data recovery before, and he was willing to answer any questions. He got our data restored to a new drive within 2 days. Would definitely recommend.”
– Seth Allen
“Carolina Data Recovery is terrific. We lost a RAID 5 array with critical data and we needed to recover it quickly. We spoke with 3 different venders, and Ron made a big impression over the phone. We did not regret our choice. He worked with us on shipping and priority, and within three days of placing that call we had our data back in 3 days.. HIGHLY recommended. .”
