Hard drives and solid-state drives are a fundamental addition to any PC setup. An external hard drive is responsible for both storing data and to reboot your computer quicker on startup.
Hard disk drives (HDDs) are the traditional storage solution. They are generally cheaper and feature higher storage capabilities than the newer solid-state drives (SSDs). However, if you’re after a more durable and faster hard drive, then an SSD may be worth adding to your cart.
HDD Hard Drives
Hard drives are a piece of hardware equipment that stores your data and personal applications. At Shopping Express, you can find both internal and external hard drives to work with your PC or laptop.
The type of HDD you choose will depend on your individual storage requirements or computer. Generally, a standard desktop computer will require a 3.5 inch HDD while laptops will suit 2.5 inch hard drives. HDDs range in storage capacity, with the highest holding up to 10TB.
SSD Solid State Drives
Solid-state drives are newer and more compact than HDDs but generally feature fewer storage capabilities. Because they consist of interconnected flash memory chips, SSDs are faster, quieter and more reliable.
SDDs are optimal for newer models of PCs and laptops, such as MacBooks since they are a lot faster. SDDs range in capacity from the standard 500TB to 1TB units. There are larger capacities available for those needing more storage, but they can be more expensive. If your budget allows, they are a great choice of storage solution.
External Hard Drives
An external hard drive is another useful storage solution if you don’t want to install an HDD or SDD into your computer. Due to their portability, external hard drives are great for storing important files for either desktop or laptop computers. Connect via USB port and export any file from your computer for secure on-the-go storage.
Shopping Express Australia carries a large range of HDD, SDD, and external hard drives so that you can safely store your files and important pictures, videos, and applications.
