Will Computers Get More Expensive with New Trade Tariffs?

The Trump Administration is engaging in a high-stakes trade battle with China that could result in tariffs placed on computers and other tech products that enter the United States. What do these higher costs mean for businesses who need to regularly update their technology products? 

Unfair Advantage 

The Trump Administration is proposing a 25% tariff on information and communication products and parts imported from China, which could amount to $50 billion to $60 billion in total tariffs. The administration claims that these tariffs are in response to China’s routine theft of U.S. intellectual property and the imports it places on American goods. Read More

Low Voltage vs. Regular Voltage RAM

If you are in the market to purchase new RAM for your company’s computers, you may be focused on the standard features: Speed, Size, and Price. These are very important factors in your purchase decision, but don’t forget to take voltage into consideration.

What Is RAM Voltage?

Voltage refers to the amount of power that RAM draws while in use. Most DDR3 RAM runs at 1.5V, but low voltage RAM can run at just 1.25V. What is the difference between regular voltage RAM and low voltage RAM? Will low voltage RAM result in slower performance? Is it possible to save energy and reduce your company’s carbon footprint by choosing low voltage RAM? What are the costs differences between the two options?  Read More

Should You Buy Computer RAM with a Heat Shield?

Anyone who works around computers and servers knows how hot a CPU or GPU can get after a lot of use. The fact that these components are practically turning your server room into a sauna makes it easy to overlook heat creation by your RAM.

The truth is that a RAM doesn’t get anywhere near as hot as a CPU or GPU, but it does create heat. Put your hand near RAM after it’s been working intensively, and you’ll feel heat coming off of it. (We don’t recommend touching it.)

Since RAM can heat up with a lot of intense use, does it make sense to purchase a heat shield?  Read More

We Have the Memory Size You Need

If you are on the lookout for additional memory for your company’s computers, it’s important to know how much memory you need. The biggest mistake you could make is buying too little memory. Before you know it, your memory will be full, and you’ll either have to start deleting important software and files, or you’ll need to spend more money to buy additional memory.

At the same time, there’s no point in buying too much memory. You could end up spending extra money that could go towards other important business purchases.

Why It’s Smarter to Buy Wholesale Memory Than to Replace All of Your Computers

Your I.T. manager tells you that all the computers in the company need to be replaced with newer, better models. You look at your budget and realize that there is just no way that you can possibly afford it. Don’t worry. There’s a better option. You can upgrade your current computers and make them run almost like new just by upgrading their memory.  

In a Perfect World…

In a perfect world, if your coffers were overrunning with extra money, then sure, it would be great to give every single employee a new computer. The truth is, however, that it usually isn’t necessary. Your I.T. guys always want more pixels and all the bells and whistles, but your average employee just needs a computer that is reliable, can handle software requirements, and runs fast.

That last part is usually the problem.

If your current computers are only a few years old, then they are probably completely fine except that their memory and RAM may be overburdened. This will cause them to run slow and “feel” old. Fortunately, you can upgrade a computer’s memory and make it run almost like new at only a fraction of the cost of replacing the entire computer!

How to Find the Right Memory for Your Computers

You’d think it would be easy to add more memory to your company’s computers. You jump online, find a good deal, and then place your order. Not so fast. It can actually be incredibly confusing and frustrating to find the right computer memory for your computer. That’s because different computer models require different kinds of memory. If you choose the wrong type of memory, it won’t be compatible with your computers. Imagine having to ship back all that memory and starting the purchasing process all over again! 

To make matters worse, many memory companies actually make it difficult for you to find the memory options that are compatible with your computer. At Memory America, we don’t make you jump through hoops or force you to guess and pray that you picked the right type of memory. We’ve created an easy-to-use system that makes finding the right memory for your computers simple. Read More

What Are SATA Internal Hard Drives?

When you start browsing through internal hard drives at Memory America, you may notice that we sell a lot of SATA hard drives. What are SATA hard drives, how are they different from ATA hard drives, and how are they used?

An Evolution from ATA to SATA

SATA stands for Serial AT Attachment and is also often known as “Serial ATA.” SATA is what is known in the data industry as a “computer bus” which simply means that it is a system that transfers data between components. In this case, SATAs connect host bus adapters to storage devices, including hard disk drives. (They can also be used to connect adapters to solid state drives and optical drives).

The SATA system was released to wide adaption in 2000. Before that time, most systems used PATA, known as Parallel AT Attachment. SATA offers several important benefits over PATA. Read More

Is a Hammer Still the Best Way to Wipe a Hard Disk Drive?

In this day and age, being wary about the privacy of your data isn’t paranoid. It’s smart. If it’s time to send a hard disk drive to that big server rack in the sky, you need to make sure you aren’t leaving vulnerable files on the drive that some enterprising thief can pull off if they happen upon the discarded drive. 

Deleting all the files off the drive may seem like the way to go, but you aren’t done yet. Just because files are deleted doesn’t mean that they are gone forever. There may still be a record of them on the drive that a hacker could pull off. Read More

What Does DDR Stand For? 

As you start browsing the computer memory catalog at Memory America, you’ll notice the term “DDR” listed under many of our products. What does DDR stand for, and how does it affect the performance of your memory?

DDR stands for “Double Data Rate,” and it is a class of computer memory. DDR came out as an improvement over the standard synchronous dynamic random-access memory, most often known as SDRAM. In some cases, DDR is actually written as DDR-SDRAM. What makes DDR more advanced than simple SDRAM is its speed. DDR sends and receives signals twice per clock cycle. This means that it can move data twice as fast as its old counterpart SDRAM. It also uses less power, making it a great memory option for smaller devices, like netbooks. Read More

How could they possibly have become obsolete so quickly?  Read More

It’s happened to the best of us. You open an application, like a PowerPoint presentation, spend hours on a big new client proposal… and then accidentally click out without saving.

Is a Solid State Drive the Right Memory Option for You?

Need more memory on your personal computer or want to up the memory on the laptops of your employees? You’ll need to decide whether to buy hard disk drives (HDDs) or solid state drives (SSDs).

Four Ways to Tell You Need More RAM

Having an adequate amount of RAM (random access memory), is crucial to a smooth and fast computing experience. Every desktop, laptop, and tablet comes with a certain amount of RAM built-in (and this should definitely be a factor you consider before purchasing your fleet of computers.) Sometimes, however, that RAM is not enough for the needs of your staff, especially if your computers are a few years old.

Fortunately, if your employees are running out of RAM, you can buy and add additional RAM to most current desktop and laptop computers, as well as some models of tablets. How do you know whether your computers need additional RAM or if your problems are coming from a different source?  Read More

Is It Safe to Buy a Refurbished Hard Disk Drive?

There’s just something about the word “refurbished” that brings to mind a broken product barely held together by glue and duct tape. This negative connotation makes many people think that buying refurbished hardware, like a refurbished hard disk drive, is a risky endeavor. Is this an accurate assumption, or is it actually safe to buy a refurbished hard disk drive?

Refurbished Hardware Isn’t Always Broken

Many consumers don’t realized that there are actually many different reasons that a piece of hardware may end up in the refurbished category that has nothing to do with any defects in its functionality. For example, a refurbished product might have:

  •        Been returned because a customer changed her mind
  •        Shipped with small, external flaws
  •       Not been sold before the next generation model hit the shelves
  •        Been a demo unit  Read More
