Hello M:R Nation –
Cue the Billy Joel piano solo for this blog post. Mission Repair is in a “Solid State” of mind as of late. We just announced our more than awesome Fusion Drive upgrade service which utilizes solid state technology. Today, we are announcing a major price drop for all of our solid state drive upgrade services and the addition of a new drive!
Lets start with the price drop! We have lowered our SSD pricing across the board to as much as 50% off! We are offering our SSD in new and more stable sizes as well. Now available in 60GB, 120GB, 240GB and introducing 480GB!
We will remove your very mechanical HDD (install that into an external enclosure if you choose) and install a brand new, stable with no moving parts Solid State Drive! We will also do a complete data transfer for free if possible!
We know the SSD in not new, we have them installed for years now, but the time has come to where they are just more affordable. I have used one in my office computer for over a year now and when I try to use a computer with a regular HDD, I fall asleep because of how slow it is. That is one of the greatest benefits to installing one. SPEED! The other main reason folks upgrade to the SSD is reliability. While everything has a chance to fail, the SSD has a much greater chance of sticking in there for the life of your computer without crashing and erasing all of your data.
These new prices and sizes are available starting today and can be installed in most Macbook,Macbook Pros and PC laptops! If you have any questions on Solid State Drives and the process itself or anything else, call us at 866-638-8402! We are here to help you.
Yes, we’ve populated the Mission Repair site with a handful of new services- we are now offering solid state hard drive upgrades for all Intel based Mac portable computers. In fact, we can also install these into any Windows based laptop as well. How convenient is that?
What’s the big deal about solid state drives (a.k.a. SSD)?
From Wikipedia: “A solid-state drive (SSD) is a data storage device that uses solid-state memory to store persistent data with the intention of providing access in the same manner of a traditional block i/o hard disk drive. SSDs are distinguished from traditional hard disk drives (HDDs), which are electromechanical devices containing spinning disks and movable read/write heads. SSDs, in contrast, use microchips which retain data in non-volatile memory chips and contain no moving parts. Compared to electromechanical HDDs, SSDs are typically less susceptible to physical shock, quieter, and have lower access time and latency. SSDs use the same interface as hard disk drives, thus easily replacing them in most applications.
As of 2010, most SSDs use NAND-based flash memory, which retains memory even without power. SSDs using volatile random-access memory (RAM) also exist for situations which require even faster access, but do not necessarily need data persistence after power loss, or use external power or batteries to maintain the data after power is removed.”
OK, fancy, right? What does it really mean? Your computer is going to run very fast. Booting your computer is like lightning, and unlike a spinning hard drive, SSD’s are very quiet, use little power, and virtually never fail. We will be back soon with a side-by-side comparison of an iMac booting up off of a conventional hard drive AND then booting up off of a solid state drive. You’ll be amazed.
