No Fix, No Fee Guarantee

Solid state hard drives (SSDs) are a newer type of hard drive which use flash memory instead of a spinning platter to store information.  With no moving parts and very fast read and write times, they use less power and break less often because they don't fail when they get dropped like regular hard drives do.  They are still more expensive per gigabyte (GB) than mechanical hard drives but the price for SSDs has come down dramatically in 2018 and I have never seen them less expensive than they are right now.  If your computer could use a speed boost but you don't feel like replacing the whole computer, pick up a new solid state drive from Amazon and then contact us for installation.  In most cases, as long as your new hard drive has more storage capacity (ex 500GB) than the amount of the space you are using on your existing hard drive (ex 235GB used) then it is pretty straightforward for us to clone (copy) your existing Windows installation, programs, iTunes, pictures, and all) onto the new drive in a short amount of time and this will be the best upgrade you have ever done to speed up your old(er) computer and keep it in service for another few years.  You will be very happy with this upgrade.
Here are some solid state drives that we have installed and are presently deeply discounted on Amazon:

Results from typical speed test

You really cannot go wrong with either of these drives or pretty much any other SSD you find and will be blown away with the performance increase; usually 5 to 10 times faster than your old hard drive at a minimum.  Typically our fee for installation of the hard drive and cloning your existing hard drive onto it will typically not exceed $100 unless for some reason your existing Windows installation is not running well and it is necessary to backup data, reinstall Windows from scratch on the new hard drive, and then copy your data onto the new drive.  This is usually only necessary if your computer is having problems, running very slowly, or is giving you error messages that you cannot get to go away.
