Choosing a Seagate SSD – Get it Right First Time

Making sure you buy the right storage media for your hardware is so very important. In the old days, when buying Hard Drives, it was so much simpler, as the technology was diverse but much easier to understand. With newer and faster flash media, the industry over the last 10-15 years has had to adapt to brand new yardsticks with which to measure their technology against in order to maintain both quality and price. Solid State Drive (SSD) technology is something that, though once considered out of the reach of the average consumer, is now very, very common. Considerably faster than the much older HDD technology, SSDs are now featured inside almost every commercial technology device that we use today in some large or small form. One of the biggest brands in the world of storage in 2020/2021 is Seagate Technology and unsurprisingly, they have an impressive selection of SSDs available to buy in their product portfolio. This combined with Seagate being a domineering force in the world of hard drives has resulted in their investment in SSDs and a wide range of solutions on offer being incredibly diverse and confusing. So, if you are in the market to buy a new SSD from Seagate, it can be awfully confusing and you can spend hours trying to narrow down the literal hundreds of SSDs on offer to the right one, losing hours along the way.

However, before we start, it is worth taking a moment to learn about the key buying factors that affect the performance and suitability of any SSD compared with another.
