Windows 7: Think you know SSDs? Think again.

Yeah, that does look like it is going to be the king of the hill under Intel at least for now.

Your not supposed to defrag an SSD.
I wonder if the IT guy knew?

It still takes the shine of it though...

At least the minimum performance rate plateaus to some degree and even at minimum performance a very few of those drives will still largely outperform current HDD's.

Either way, I'm not in that much of a rush now to grab one

I've sometimes had a drive defrag in stupidly quick time. It's due to the fact that the HD was defragged mere moments before LOL.

I just posted this in the ReBoot Time thread. OCZ Vertex 30GB with 1275 firmware on XPS M1330. W7 build 7068 x64. Read the whole 30 page article, and the update article, checked Newegg, they are on sale.... the rest is history....LOL

Nice - glad those things are working out for ya.

OCZ is really making a name for themselves, and I expect to see more good things come from them.

I read the article, in full. I have to say, when I finally do buy a SSD drive for my home use, it wil be an OCZ. When I buy them for work, they'll be Intel though. Money no object there and speed is most important.

Very nice!

Edit: For work, that's the servers. If I get the budget to put SSDs in the workstations, I'd go with OCZ drives since a balance of price and performance is what's used there.

Choose between 2 new SSDs.
I just bought a new HP Envy 4t. I'm looking for a thin 7mm SSD to put in it, and I've narrowed my choices down to 2. I understand one comes with a data transfer kit and one doesn't, and there's a slight difference in capacity. That being said, and "stated drive performance...

Prefetch and SSDs
My understanding from reading the MSDN blog was that prefetch and defrag were to be disabled for SSDs with "good performance." I have a second generation Intel X25-M 80GB as my boot drive which I believe qualifies as a "good performing" SSD. I do see that defrag is disabled for my SSD (C:...

SSDs and Superfetch
Hello all, I know that if your using an SSD Drive that you don't need to have Superfetch enabled, but I think that my regular HDs do benefit from it. I have an Intel SSD, and the toolbox recommends disabling it. Since I have all my games and data on regular HDs, wouldn't it actually hurt my...
