Silicon Power Portable SSD Drives and Why They Are Important
Author: Mike Carroll
There’s nothing better than having a fast portable SSD drive to keep your workflow going - especially while you’re on the road. The compact portability of the Silicon Power SSD Bolt B75 Pro with shockproof and scratch resistant is a great choice when it comes to your choice of portable storage. Below, I will briefly discuss the benefits of choosing an SSD drive.

Solid state drives are the best option for speed and reliability. They deliver faster load times for games, video and certain photo applications such as Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop. I certainly notice an upstick of performance in comparison to an HDD drive. SSD drives are lighter, have less moving parts, use less energy, which allows for your computer to perform at it’s best. You will notice much faster boot up times from your computer while using an SSD drive.
I’m a big fan of a small form factor. The idea that 2TB of storage can fit into a small package is a huge plus for me. I can pack this drive anywhere into my f-stop bags without the worry of taking up too much space.
