When SSDs are not that solid
Around 120GB SSD seems a good size for me (installed programs, some data and efficient imaging). Maybe I'll consider them disposable items provided I have recent system images and the price drops even further.
That was the news of the month, just for not getting too boored.
"boored". If you're that boored bored maybe read a dictionary.
Nope i meant it that way. We're not at Cambridge here you know.

I was planning to get a 850 Pro but after the last "incident" i'm not that sure anymore. Perhaps i should get a sandisk extreme pro or an intel 730 with only 250MB write speeds? sigh.

Attachment 364174

What I noticed was, with a pagefile set to 10GB each restart increased bytes written with that amount.
Is CrystalMark freeware? If not how much does it cost, and where can I download it?

I did a Google search and saw many download sites for version 4.xx but I see you have version 6.3.2

There you go - Download Center - Crystal Dew World, I see it is now 6.5.2

All of my softwares are freeware. A part of my software is distributed under The modified BSD license. I would appreciate it if you could do development support.
I use the standard version portable.

Edit: Yeah CrystalMark (actually DiskMark) is 4.0.3, the screenshot is DiskInfo. Can be found in same page.

My first SSD was a Intel 510 series 120 GB.
Installed date 4-29-2011
$286.00
In 2011 their was no discounts on cost.

It is still testing with the Intel Toolbox at 100%

Smart tells me Host Writes are 3.7 TB

Other than the one stated above I have with little use, but I don't expect any problems. I treat my SSD's like hard drives except defrag. I do not baby them.
If they die they die. I didn't buy them to look at. I bought them to use.

1- Intel 530/120 GB
1- Samsung EVO840/500 GB
2- Intel 730/240 GB

Prices have surly dropped. The Intel 730/240 GB were bought last Black Friday for about $110.00 @. Limit 2 per customer.

Update:
I just checked with my Intel Dealer and he is having no RMA with Intel SSD's.
The local school system got a few for testing a while back and liked them so much the school system bough another 400 Intel SSD's last week from him.

Testing by a bunch of kids in schools should be a good indication that SSD's work well.

~Terabyte per month - probably due to VMs.

I had never checked that info before - perhaps because the drive/laptop is my employer's.

I wish I had 500GB :-)

Years ago toy companies would put a bunch of toys in a room full of kids and then just watch.
They would find out what works and what does not.
They would then make changes to the toys or just drop them all together.

Is this a sign that HDD prices are about to fall?
I've noticed on Newegg that they've increased the limits on the amount of drives that you can buy. I've seen 3, 5, 10, 20 and 100 drive limits, today. Even the 20 packs are back. If they have so many drives in stock, then why are prices still so high? Price gouging, perhaps? Something...
