SSHD Supercharges Gaming Systems, Sales Opportunities

The game console market is growing by leaps and bounds, giving you great sales opportunities for storage upgrades. While true hardcore gamers are most likely to go straight to expensive SSD, the vast majority of other gamers (the largest part of the gamer market) are prime SSHD sales prospects because they want their consoles to hold more games and load them faster. With typical games taking 30-50GB of disk space, the standard HDDs included with gaming systems soon run out of space—and they are considered too slow when users want to rapidly load games for play.
Not only is there clear demand for the speed and capacity benefits that SSHDs bring to gaming systems, the total available market (TAM) is huge. For example, figures from Statista Inc. put PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 shipments at slightly over 80 million units each, and PlayStation 4 at approximately 8 million sold.

What Customers are Saying...

¡°i love buying stuff from new egg they always keep me up to date with new products, they show you how to install stuff on newegg tv on youtube. They offer their products for a good price too. one time an item was missing from a package because of the ups guy and I called them and they were very courteous and refunded the money pretty quick. I have done buisness with them for a while and I always wondered how they would be once there was a problem and I was extremly satisfied with the service. I am always shopping on Newegg and will continue doing buisness with them for some time. ¡±

Internal Hard Drive

Much in the same way that the human body is defined by the brain inside of it, computers are judged often by their hard drive. The hard drive is the epicenter of the computer, providing processing power and storage for the people who use them. Simply put, computing as we know it would be impossible without them.

But, like all hardware that has moving parts, hard drives can wear down with time and become unusable. When this occurs, replacement is necessary. It may also be that the hard drive that came standard with a new PC. just is not doing the job it needs to and requires an upgrade. Internal hard drives are available for purchase that can fit any need or desire, be it better graphics or a total system overhaul. In order to maximize computer performance, hard drives should be periodically evaluated in terms of user satisfaction and physical condition.

Options of internal hard drive

There are countless options when seeking out a new internal hard drive. Newegg has a large selection of products that will meet your needs. Many of the usual big names like HP, Lenovo, Toshiba, ASUS and Dell all have entries in the market. Western Digital and Seagate are also very popular brands of internal hard drive, including popular models such as WD Velociraptor and the Seagate Terascale Hard Drive.

Lifespan of a hard drive

The reality of technology is that all hardware has an expiration date, and hard drives are no exception. Generally speaking, if a hard drive is in constant use, then the three or four year mark is generally where device failure will start to crop up. There is some debate regarding this, as drives running for as long as eight years have been reported to still function effectively. That all being said, if a computer is put to use long enough, then there will definitely come a time when it needs to be replaced. This is all dependent, however, on what it is used for and how frequently it is put to work.

Putting old hard drives to good use

In many situations, however, hard drives need only be replaced because they are insufficient for what they are needed for. These old drives might still be in perfect working order, but something else is required for optimal performance. If a desktop computer has an extra drive bay, the new hard drive can be installed to work in tandem with the old one, providing a little extra storage space or performance power. For the laptop users or even the more DIY-minded, old internal hard drives can even be converted into external storage with the installation of a USB enclosure.

If there is no extra space, these still-useful devices can be donated to schools or non-profits that might be able to use them. It is advised that a full, comprehensive wipe of the hard drive is performed before being handed over to someone else, however. After all, nobody wants their bank information to inadvertently end up somewhere that it is not supposed to.
