What to Consider When Buying a Hard Disk Drive

There are many factors and features that influence hard disk prices in Kenya. Researching these features and factors before buying will make your hard disk shopping easy and enjoyable. As you do your research, you need to ask yourself the following questions so that you can arrive at the best buying decision.

Do you need a Hard Disk Drive (HDD) or a Solid State Drive (SSD)?

The first thing to consider before you buy a hard drive is whether you need a HDD drive  or SSD drive. An SSD drive uses flash memory while HDD uses spinning metal disks. Because of the way SSDs store data, they have some advantages over the traditional HDDs. They write and read data faster and draw less power thus extending laptop battery life and conserving energy. They are silent in operation and have longer lifespans because they do not have moving parts.

Performance and speed are the main advantages of an SSD over an HDD. Therefore if you need a drive to store data and programs that will need to be accessed faster, buy SSD hard drives. We have a wide range of SSDs you can choose from.

SSDs are however more expensive per gigabyte than the traditional HDDs. This means that if you have a lean budget and are looking for a hard drive for regular use, it is better to buy the traditional HDD.

We have different capacities of internal hard disks (HDDs) for laptops and desktop computers and our prices are quite affordable when compared with the average internal hard disk prices in Kenya. If you want a drive just for backup, then buy an external hard disk (HDD). We have wide variety of external HDDs with different capacities from 500GB to 14TB. Our prices are pocket-friendly and we have the best external hard disk prices in Kenya

What Hard Disk Drive Size and Interface do You Need?

The next feature to consider is form factor. Hard drives come in two form factors: the 3.5-inch drive and the 2.5-inch drive. Desktop hard disks (HDDs) are usually 3.5-inches with a maximum capacity of about 10TB, and laptop hard disks (HDDs) are normally 2.5-inches with a maximum capacity of 5-10TB. Shop with us and get the best laptop hard disk prices in Kenya.

Most SSD drives are 2.5 inches. They are made smaller than HDDs because they do not have any moving parts. Internal drives use SATA connectors whereas external hard disks connect through USB ports.

What Hard Disk Specifications and Performance Do You need to look out for?

Here is what you need to look for;
Capacity. HDDs and SSDs come in a wide range of capacities. The smallest capacity of HDD we have is 250 GB with maximum capacity at 14TB. 500GB hard disks are the best selling and we have the best 500 GB hard disk price in Kenya.
Transfer speeds. Revolutions Per Minute (RPM) is an important determinant of HDD performance. Higher RPM means faster transfer of data to and from the drive.
Buffer. When a hard disk needs to move data from one part of the drive to another, it uses an area of memory called the buffer. A larger buffer enables quicker transfer of data faster because more information can be stored at one time, but they cost more.  HDDs that have 256 MB of buffer have higher hard disk prices in Nairobi and across Kenya than those that have lower sizes such as 8 MB.
Rate of failure. Since SSDs do not have moving parts, they tend to last longer than HDDs. However, HDDs last longer than SSDs when it comes to long-term data storage.

Do You Need an External Hard Drive or Internal Hard Drive?

Internal hard disks are housed inside a desktop case or laptop body, whereas external hard disks are inside hard disk casing and used externally to connect to a variety of devices.
External hard drives are portable and are ideal for backups, storage, and transfers. For all other cases, internal drives are the best option.

Are You Looking for A Gaming Hard Disk for Your PlayStation, Xbox, or PC?

SSDs are recommended for gaming, because their speed far exceed those of HDDs.

What is the Average Price of Hard Drives?

To get a feel of what value you are getting for your money, divide the capacity of the HDD with the cost. You will find that the higher the capacity of a hard disk, the cheaper it is per gigabyte. A 1TB hard disk price in Kenya is about KSh. 5,500 and a 2TB hard disk price in Kenya is about KShs. 7,000. When you do your Math, a 2TB HDD is cheaper by about KShs. 2,000 per TB.

Conclusion

Hard disks do not last forever. At one time or another they will need to be replaced for one reason or another. Having a basic understanding of various features of Hard disk drives will help you to make the right pick when the right time comes.

Hard drives can be classified into HDDs and SSDs. HHDs are generally more capacious than SSDs. SSDs have fewer moving parts than traditional hard drives, and they offer the fastest access to your data.

Unlike a traditional hard drive, which stores data on spinning platters accessed by a moving magnetic head, an SSD uses a collection of flash cells—similar to the ones that make up a computer’s RAM—to save data.

Hard drives are either internal or external. Internal hard drives are housed in desktop cases or laptop bodies, whereas external hard drives are used externally to connect to a variety of devices via USB port.

Both internal and external hard drives are used to store data. Both have large amounts of capacity for your storage needs. You can store just about anything in both of them. External hard disk prices in Kenya are slightly higher in comparison to the internal hard disk prices in Kenya.
