2.5" SATA Hard Drives for notebooks and some small form factor desktops/all in ones

A new hard drive or SSD not only gives your computer more storage, it can speed it up substantially. All hard drives slow down dramatically as they fill up - a drive that is nearly full can be performing at only half the speed it was new (it's geometry - the inner tracks of the platter are shorter and can't pass as much data per revolution). A new drive will get your data back out to the fastest (outer) tracks of the drive (or replace the spinning drive with a fast SSD Flash based drive), and restore speed. Call us for a recommendation for your machine.

Consider upgrading hard drives in your computers on a scheduled basis -- every 1 to 2 years -- before they break down. That way you always have a fast performing drive, under warranty. You can use the previous drive in one of our external enclosures as a backup drive or for transporting data.

An external drive or a Network Attached Storage (NAS) drive are the fastest and most convenient ways to back up your data. Owners of Apple's OSX Leopard have TimeMachine software for making backups, which will use a large drive. Here's some other shareware drive backup and cloning software for Mac and software for Windows to help out.

Drive pricing and availability changes frequently, please email for a quote. If you would like to know what type of hard drive you require please call tollfree 1-877-320-0225 or email us with your computer particulars. (All drives are supplied as bare mechanisms, no mounting hardware or software included)
