Deciding to upgrade your notebook storage to a solid state drive is the easy part. SSDs are faster than whatever mechanical hard drive you're rocking, and you can expect a performance boost in day-to-day activity, whether it's simply booting the OS or playing with programs like Photoshop. So what' the hard part? Actually migrating your OS and data over to the new drive.
It's not that it's particularly difficult, it's just time consuming and tedious. For some, it's also a little scary. Do you have all the right drivers ready to go? Have you written down all your license keys? Have you located all your saved game files, photos, and other digital bits you don't want to lose? It's a pretty big checklist, or you can roll with one of Corsair's
new Force Series 3 SSD Notebook Upgrade Kits and not worry about it.
Each kit includes a USB-to-SATA cable and easy-to-use migration software for transferring over your OS, application data, and all your other digital files with little-to-no fuss.
"Laptop owners have become more aware of the performance, power efficiency, and reliability of SSDs but many have been put off by the complexity of moving their existing data," said Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products at Corsair. "The new Force Series 3 SSD Notebook Upgrade Kits simplify the data migration process, making upgrading to an SSD easier than ever."
The best part about this is that the kits are reasonably priced. Corsair set MSRPs of $140 for the 120GB model and $260 for the 240GB model.
