5 Solid State Drives to Power Your Edits

When you’re putting together the final cut for your latest masterpiece, the last thing you want is for your computer to slow down and start lagging. That’s why it’s important to make sure you have a storage drive that wont bottleneck.

For years, hard drives have been the primary storage option for computers. However, solid-state drives are now the professional choice, as they offer a number of advantages over traditional hard drives. One of the biggest benefits of solid-state drives is that they can help to speed up your renders… immensely. Hard drives tend to be a bottleneck in terms of speed, as they can lag behind the processor. SSDs, on the other hand, can keep up with even the fastest processors, resulting in a much smoother editing experience. In addition, solid-state drives are more durable and require less power than hard drives. They also tend to be smaller and lighter, making them a good option for laptops and other portable devices.

Over the years, I’ve gotten my hands on plenty of SSDs, and although most are going to do the job just fine… there are only a few that I truly trust my most sacred data on.
