After Q2 2014, many big-named PC manufacturers have claimed that the PC market has finally crawled out of its slump with sales showing noticeable recovery. However, actual observation tells a different tale: most consumers who still find their PCs “usable within reason” would not jump the gun by replacing their out-dated computer. Instead, they keep using their old systems for the sake of saving money. It is really a poor decision, because the rationale behind tolerating terrible PC performance may be equivalent to inflicting self-punishment!
Here’s a scenario that may be all too familiar: After starting up your PC, you leave your desk to make yourself a nice cup of tea/coffee and if you are lucky, your PC would have completed the startup sequence by the time you plop back into your chair. You need to be honest with yourself and ask yourself this question: “Is it really worth it to waste time on waiting for your painfully slow system to save some petty money?” The truth is, you can still upgrade your PC even if you don’t have the budget to do an entire whole overhaul; you can simply begin with upgrading specific components.
There’s no other hardware replacement that will deliver more noticeable change in PC performance than solid state drive (SSD) replacement. For users who have massive number of files for pictures, music, videos, documents, SSD is a godsend in terms of management efficiency! If you are a gamer, your dated computer may take as long as 2 minutes just to load the files for a major game. By upgrading your system with SSD, the whole process may end in just 30 seconds! The dramatic improvement in performance by switching to SSD would surprise users who have never tried SSD before and they will never go back to the crawl speed of their old computers.
With that said, it is worth noting that there are numerous SSD brands available in the market and quality is something that one must watch out for. While poor quality SSD may also offer performance improvement, such products offer no guarantee for system stability. If “price” is your one and only concern for the selection of SSD, the only advice we have for you is: back up your data often; because if your sub-par SSD ever malfunction, you can kiss your lost data goodbye.
Well you might say, “But I don’t have that sort of budget!”
