WD introduces its first WD-branded SATA solid state drives (SSD) WD Blue and WD Green.
Aside from adding more RAM, the next best upgrade you can do to improve your PC or laptop’s performance is to get a solid state drive. SSDs read data faster because of the way it’s constructed. Think of it as something like memory cards or SD cards. It has no spinning, moving or mechanical parts. So when you access an application or program, it is read instantly (no more spinning discs like traditional hard drives) and opens faster.
Now if you’re looking for reliable SSDs, WD has recently announced its product offerings.
