Get in touch with us about replacing the hard drive with an SSD (Solid State Drive). Replacing your hard drive with an SSD is one of the best things you can do to dramatically improve the performance of your computer.
Prices start from just £175 for a 240GB SSD and that includes cloning your hard drive too
So, what benefits can you expect if you upgrade to a solid-state drive? Here are several reasons that these storage devices have been becoming so popular in recent years.
The biggest complaint most people have with their computer is that it’s too slow. This is especially the case if you’ve had it a few years and the hard drive is getting filled up. SSDs can give you a significant speed boost in a number of ways.
Boot time using a solid-state drive averages about 10-13 seconds as compared to 30-40 seconds for a hard drive. Because SSDs use nonvolatile storage media that stores persistent data on solid-state flash memory, file copy/write speeds are faster as well.
Another speed benefit is on file opening time, which is typically 30% faster on SSD as compared to HDD.
You can expect an SSD to last two to three times longer than HDD. They are generally more resistant to shock and general wear because they don’t contain any moving parts to wear out or become damaged. This also makes them the best choice for mobile devices, because they can take the normal bumps and shocks better than hard drives can.
Have you ever heard your computer “thinking?” That sound of the hard drive whirring around won’t be there with an SSD. No moving parts means zero noise. They also dissipate less heat than HDD, and heat can negatively impact computer performance, so less heat is good.
Your laptop’s battery life will be better with SSD because they consume less power than mechanical hard drives. This means when you’re travelling, you’ll have more time before needing to find that one open power outlet.
Solid-state drives are smaller than HDDs, which makes them very versatile to fit into all types of sleek devices. That’s why you’ll often see them used in hybrid tablet/laptop computers, to give computing power while taking up much less space than a mechanical hard drive.
SSDs have a built-in power failure circuitry to back up data in the event of voltage drops. Their ability to monitor and adjust for voltage fluctuations means that document you just spent two hours on will be saved intact, when you might end up losing some of it if you’re on a hard drive and experience a drop in voltage.

Yes the all new Windows 11 is now available. If your PC is able to run Windows 11 you will be notified that the download is ready for you in your updates section. Yes it's a FREE upgrade! On Windows 10 go to Start/Settings/Update and Security/ Windows Update. If once you have upgraded to Windows 11 you simply don't like it, then you can rollback to Windows 10 within 10 days of doing the upgrade.
My advice to you as with all these new rollouts is though to maybe wait 6 months for all the gliches to get ironed out. Already some users are reporting that Windows 11 slows their internet connection down.
To check if your PC can run Windows 11 download and run the latest. Microsoft’s PC Health Check app.
Unlike Windows 10, which was specifically designed to run on older hardware, Windows 11 requires relatively new hardware and it will not install as an upgrade on older PCs. Most PCs designed and sold in 2019 or later will work with Windows 11. Owners of PCs that fall short of the minimum requirements may still be able to install Windows 11, but Microsoft warns that those installations will be unsupported.
Older hardware is less likely to pass Windows 11's stringent compatibility checks; Intel 7th Generation Core processors, for example, are not on the list of compatible CPUs, nor are PCs built using AMD Zen 1 processors. PCs purchased in 2016 or earlier are almost certain to be unsupported.
