Game consoles Every time you load a game, your hard drive has to access the game’s files. Get on the battlefield faster by slashing load and boot times, accessing everything on the console faster, and getting better performance without breaking the bank to upgrade your console with an SSD. Crucial SSDs are also over 2x more energy efficient than a hard drive, meaning your console runs cooler and quieter.2
Cable or satellite DVR boxes It takes time for your DVR to load the shows and movies you’ve recorded, and it’s difficult to relax when your patience is tried by long, frustrating load times. It’s even worse when your DVR storage runs out of room to record. A Crucial SSD loads those files faster and comes in capacities up to 1TB so you can store more of what you want to watch.3
Network-attached storage (NAS) Whether it’s in the office, design studio, or at home, multiple users accessing a NAS strain its performance. That compromises your device’s speed, limits productivity, and creates frustration. Although your network has a great impact on NAS performance, don’t let a storage bottleneck slow you down. Filling your NAS with SSDs helps each user access data almost instantly and protects your data at a higher level with encryption and increased reliability.
Home server Every time you access data on a hard drive-based home server, you have to wait. And since almost everything is stored on the server, the wait times add up. A home server takes time to retrieve and load the content you want to use, whether it’s for entertainment or productivity. Access what you’re looking for faster, and accelerate apps with an SSD for a more enjoyable and efficient experience. Plus, an SSD safeguards the important files you put on your home server.
