Windows 7: SSD boot time

SSD boot time

after going through SSD perforamance thread, I was wondering if you can post boot time as well so I can see which is actually fast enough.

I'm very much inclined to get Kingston HyperX SSD 120GB.

Before this thread degnerates, I have to ask: Why would you be so concerned with boot times? Honestly, I switched to an SSD, and I couldn't even tell you if my boot times got faster or not. If you are rebooting enough to care about your boot time, you have an issue elsewhere that should be addressed. As long as the system wouldn't take minutes to boot, it shouldn't really be a concern if a system takes 20 seconds, 30 seconds, etc. It will always vary based on all the components you have installed, anyway. No two systems will boot identically, unless all hardware is identical.

If you want an SSD, get one for the boost it gives the OS once it is booted. Don't spend your efforts on boot time.

This is an example. But as Deacon says, it will depend on a lot of factors.

Or you could just look at the Windows 7 Boot Log.

Exactly, but i don't think many people bother to do that anymore? Seems weird because if i wanted to do this years ago i would have had to check the boot log. (obviously not running windows 7)

Alright, first part of question is solved. What about second one?

Is Kingston HyperX 120GB SSD worth getting as it read/write throughputs of 555 / 510MB/s

I now have build 7600 of W7 x64 Pro installed, and for the most part, it is acting as expected, with one notable exception. It remains on the Windows Starting logo screen for ~60-80 seconds. Once at desktop, it hums along as well as always. This was not characteristic of the beta or RC of x64,...
