Is a SSD better than a HDD ?


SSD Hard Drive = Incredibly faster ⏩, extremely reliable, much more durable 🏋️‍♀️& a much more modern hard drive. Benz with low maintenance, but the speed of a McLaren.

In short, they don't fail and they literally boot in a snap! No more waiting to log in and surf the web.

SSDs in general are more reliable than HDDs, which again is a function of having no moving parts.

SSDs commonly use less power and result in longer battery life because data access is much faster and the device is idle more often. With their spinning disks, HDDs require more power when they start up than SSDs.

Can hard drives be repaired?


Hard drive repair is possible, but they should NOT be reused after a recovery! Of course, HDDs can be repaired! However, a repaired HDD should not be reused, but rather, have its contents recovered immediately and then be discarded as it cannot be trusted to work into the future.

Our Computer Athletes will diagnose, recover FIRST, scan and repair a hard drive.

The total cost of replacing a hard drive is about $150-$350. This price includes the cost of the hard drive, which is between $100 and $200.

It also takes about two hours of labor, for an average cost of $150.
