Above is the link I got it from WHS. I'm no authority, but it sounds plausible, given the research on what the average user does.

Yeah, interesting. But that is a known fact. The 4K and 8K sizes are the most used by the system. That is why I always look first at those. And yes, the reads at least are mostely random because they are spread all over the place (e.g. .dlls). I still fail to see the big difference in random and sequential. With an access time of 0.1ms, it should not make too much of a difference whether a few blocks are being read sequentially or in random order. But as I said, I may be wrong.

Quite a helpful link.
Thanks Wolfgang for your input as well.

Britton:

I got the Intel 320 series 80 gig installed. Here is a benchmark for whatever it is worth.

These are little bitty things. The size of a pack of flip top Marlboros, but half as thick. I installed mine by taping it to the bottom of my case. It's odd not to hear drive noise like you do on spinning drives. No complaints yet. Intel has a nice toolbox for it. No noticeable heat at all. I can't yet judge it for speed yet. Boot time is 29 seconds so far.

For comparison, attached also is the same benchmark run on my WD Black spinning drive, just before I changed over to the SSD. The SSD is over twice as fast on writes.
