Why you need a Corsair SSD?
SSDs (Solid State Drives) can bring you fast speed of loading program from and writing data to the SSDs. Unlike traditional HDDs (hard disk drives), SSDs don’t have moving parts and also are much better in almost every respect, such as, using less power, being cooler and more durable, etc. Most importantly, SSDs are with super fast random-access times. Comparing to a hard drive which reads data by physically moving a magnetic head to a specific part of rotating platter and takes around 17ms, an SSD reads data through its memory chip and takes less than 0.1ms. Now, are you amazed the truth? But still you should think it over:
Firstly, make sure that you indeed need an SSD, for example, you have a computer for years of usage and have a traditional HDD, or you already have an SSD but without room to store new data. Here, upgrading an HDD to an SSD will surprise you for the fast speed, and replacing an old SSD with a new one may make no speed difference until you’re writing huge files every single day and at that time a few seconds worth of different is what you care about.
Secondly, when you decide to own an SSD, you have to choose the right size. Usually, an SSD with larger capacity tends to be faster than an SSD with smaller capacity, because much of an SSD’s speed advantage comes from parallelization. In addition, even considering the more money paid for a larger SSD, it’s always cheaper to change your hard drive with a larger SSD than to get a smaller SSD off the bat. So, what’s your idea now?
Finally, supposing that you already have a Corsair SSD which is good but with a paid cloning kit (actually, some SSDs do come with a free cloning software), then you need a free Corsair SSD cloning software to help you clone disk and there is no need to pay for a software. Doing so, we recommend you AOMEI Partition Assistant, a free Corsair SSD cloning kit alternative.
