Before this, you must know something about HDD and SSD.
o HDD (Hard disk drive)
HDD is a mechanical traditional storage device. which contain a revolving head rotates at high speed according to the specification of HDD. It accesses the data across the platters by rotating at high speed.
» Benefits of HDD
- Cost of HDD is cheap
- Available in large capacity
- Easily Available
» Drawback of HDD
- Lifespan and reliability is very less ( only 4 to 5-year work )
- If any Mechanical device is damage than Hard drive is Corrupt (data is the loss)
- Due to mechanical device speed is very less compared to SSD
- Required more power
ο SSD (Solid State Drive)
SSD is in a solid state does not contain moving components. It has a circuit board containing the flash memory chips on which data is stored this means that solid state disks work on less power than traditional hard drive and a far more robust because an actuator arm is not having to chase across a spinning disk.
» Benefits of SSD
- Very high speed compared to normal HDD ( laptop start, shut down, access data quickly)
- Impact resistant ( It not corrupt if fall down from hand )
- Low Power Consumption
- Long lifespan due to no any moving parts in it
- No noise
» Drawback of HDD
- High storage cost compared to a normal hard drive
- Low Storage Capacity ( because of new technology )
- Due to wear performance is reduces by time
o SSHD (Solid state hybrid drive)
SSHD is a combination of SSD & HDD. In this system operating system is installed in an SSD. due to this when you start, restart and working on your laptop or computer it will work fast.
If you have an old laptop or computer having a low-speed problem. you can install the new SSD as per your speed requirement.

STEP:1 CHECK YOUR LAPTOP MANUAL
Assess your laptop’s user handbook (or maker’s website ) to find out which type of SSD will fit in your laptop, in addition to where in fact the access panel is really to put in it.
You may also desire to look at on your warranty to be certain that you may not be voiding the warranty by performing unauthorized work on your own system.
STEP:2 BUY SSD HARD DISK FOR LAPTOP
SDD’s will are available in various sizes and thicknesses. Additionally, you will have to be certain that the drive gets got the ideal port for the notebook (SATA, or IDE).
Even a 2.5-inch, 7 millimeter thick SATA drive is what’s most widely utilized in laptops that are newer. But, thinner laptops can make work with of a 1.8-inch driveway (when they are able to be updated at all). Some laptops work with a 9.5-millimeter drive.
Ask the user manual, or the website or even the manufacturer of your laptop to be certain to buy the SSD for the notebook.
