The Difference Between HDD And SSD

The Difference Between HDD And SSD

Today, I’d like to talk to you about the differences between HDD or hard disk drive and a solid state disk known as SSD in industry.

Now, for about 20 years, we all know the Hard Disk Drive, this is it, the Hard Disk Drive. It’s a rotational magnetic optical media.

Windows 7 which is awesome been here now for 2 years and now it’s been Windows 8.

The Difference Between A Slow Computer And Slow Internet

Today, I’d like to try and draw a line the difference between a slow PC and slow internet. We get a lot of calls from Customers saying “My PC’s slow”, “My internet is slow” and they’re not sure which one is which. Today I’m going to make sure that the lines are clear.

If your PC takes 5 minutes to boot or if you start word it takes 2 or 3 minutes to boot, your PC is slow. If you go and start internet explorer and it starts quickly, but the web page fills in very slowly, that’s slow internet. It’s very important to understand the difference. A lot of people get confused when it comes to the internet about the big term, downloads. You may think “Oh, I got a big download limit, it should be fast”, that’s not necessarily so.

Is it Bad to Shutdown My Computer Regularly or Leave It On All the Time?

So is it bad to shutdown my computer

We’re not sure how it all started, but the idea that it’s harmful to shut your computer down every night is a myth. Unless you shut it down incorrectly (e.g. ripping out the power cable and laughing maniacally), there’s really nothing to worry about. In fact, shutting down your computer every night offers a few advantages. First and foremost, it won’t draw as much power when off. Additionally, you don’t have to remember to turn off the sound each night so it doesn’t wake you up with an unexpected alert. That said, keeping your computer powered on overnight has advantages as well. An always-running computer can act as a server and handle tasks while you’re sleeping. Whether you shut down regularly or keep your computer running indefinitely really depends on your needs. Let’s take a deeper look at the pros and cons of both options and how you can deal with the downsides.
