Internal Hard Drives

An internal hard drive provides data storage space and records your data. Some of these devices are mechanical and have spinning disks, while others are solid state drives that have no moving parts. Without moving parts that could wear down over time, SSDs have a longer lifespan than other drives. Whether you're looking for a long-term solution or a simple upgrade in the short term, Staples has a variety of hard drives to increase the storage space in a computer while helping to reduce power consumption.

Boost Your Computer's Transfer Rate
Boosting the transfer rate of data from a hard drive to an SD card or other external device is possible with a new internal hard drive with SATA 3.0 or higher. SATA drives have internal interfaces that connect the computer's hard drive to the motherboard and can support data transfers at speeds of up to 6GB per second. IDE/ATA hard drives are the most common, and they work similarly to SATA drives but have data transfer rates of up to 100MB per second. SATA and ATA drives have low power consumption needs. This helps reduce the cost of running a computer over time.

Reduce Wear and Tear with Solid State Hard Drives
An SSD has no moving parts. Since there is no friction to wear down the unit, it has a longer life expectancy than mechanical drives. Users can expect mechanical drives to last between 3 and 5 years, while SSDs usually last at least 6 to 10 years or longer.

Who Benefits from a New Internal Hard Drive?
Those who find that the internal space on a computer or its transfer speeds are insufficient may benefit from a new internal hard drive. SATA hard drives come in sizes of up to 4TB in the consumer market, providing plenty of space for documents, videos and other files.

Why Should You Choose a SATA Hard Drive?
SATA hard drives boost transfer times and reduce the time spent waiting while data queries are taking place. Most SATA drives have 5,400 RPM or 7,200 RPM to make multitasking quick and to prevent freezing or crashing due to a full process queue. SATA hard drives may come with shock-resistant casings, which means that they will resist damage that can be caused by small drops or bumps, and they're less likely fail if they are bumped while processing information.

How Large Are Internal Hard Drives?
Internal hard drives come in sizes that range from smaller than 80GB to 4TB or larger. Common sizes include 256GB, 500GB, 750GB and 1TB. The size you need depends on a number of factors, from the kind of processes you want to run to how much storage you want to have available for new programs and files. Internal hard drives add built-in storage to a computer, so they are not plugged in via USB like an external hard drives. Solid state drives are smaller, but they provide the same features as larger drives and offer faster processing speeds than other types of drives.
