SDD Input

Hey all, anyone that has moved into an SDD??

1. Have you noticed any differences from the traditional hard drive?
2. If so, are the differences enough to warrant the price?

Thanks,

Lee

If you are referring to SSD's yes they are worth the money if you buy a quality one. I use Intel and Samsung.

Once you use a SSD you will wonder what took you so long to do so.
SSD is probably the most single one thing you can do to a computer to increase the speed.

If you want facts, charts, graphs and testimonials just Google.

Absolutely. It's a world of difference. I would not have any PC with a HDD any more. I am just getting my 8th SSD. I even use them externally.

Yes they are definitely worth buying,
Costs :/
They are cheap so I don't know why you refer to costs for ?
Just bought a third for 50.u.s. 128 gig mx100 crucial other 2 were 256gig mx100 crucial's for 109.u.s.

Clean installs were easy once I decided to do it that way

It's such a big difference, that when you use a computer without one again, you get impatient waiting for it to boot and apps to load.

What about durability? Anyone had them long enough to measure that?

HDD usually average 5 years, but the SDD is supposed to have a much longer lifespan??

Is it true that more memory is required?

Welcome to SF leehop71,

A quality ssd will outlast but more importantly outperform and being non-mechanical be much lower energy and heat intensive, all leading to longer life and greater reliability.
I know of zero added demands on a rigs ram by using an ssd.

leehop71 this type of information is all over this forum and the internet.
Just get one and enjoy it.

They are priced right
They are durable
They don't create heat
They are small
They work internally or externally

Their is one problem with a SSD.
Once you use a SSD you will want more of them.

Absolutely not. Where did you get that from.

And they last longer. I have SSDs from 2008 that are still going strong. In the past I had 1 SSD fail and that was replaced free of charge (and even posting).

I told my local Intel dealer to watch for deals on Intel SSD's. When he finds a deal get me two more SSD.
That will make 6 of them for me.
I don't need 6 of them now but maybe later.
