SSD Poll - Vote Now!

Cast your vote!

Inspired by this thread:

SSDs have a 'bleak' future, researchers say

The purpose is to:

A) Gauge the satisfaction (or lack thereof) of current or past users of an SSD.
B) Gauge the interest level among those who do not have one

Vote, then add any additional thoughts in a post below.

If you own one and like it, tell us the reason(s).
If you own(ed) one and hate it, was it defective? Just not what you expected?
If you don't own one but want one, why haven't you bought one yet? (Price too high, waiting for higher capacity drives, etc.)
If you just plain don't want one, what are your reasons?

It's number 1 for me prof.

Had a couple of SSD's now, and I would never want to go back to a spinner for my OS

I have 5 SSDs. The only way you can get mine from me is to pry my cold dead fingers away from them!

Windows 7 pro 64bit. (SP1)

I own one for my os. Its expensive but best upgrade in a long while.. os install is blazing fast, updates/software installs lots faster too.. boot time is improved.. I would not like to go back to spinner.. but i can not go without spinner to for my data storage. i hope SSDs will become cheaper in future.

Windows 7 Ult x64 - SP1/ Windows 8 Pro x64

I have one in my desktop and one in my laptop (also HDD - dual bay:)).

Do not want to run either without a SSD, the performance increase is significant.
Plan on getting another one soon, then will have 3 of 5 computers in the house with SSDs. The other two are single hard drive bay set ups and may get one later.

Everything runs better/faster with SSDs, OS, all apps, updates, virus scans, etc.

Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1

I have two laptops with SSD's for the C drive. I really enjoy how fast they are on boot. I went and bought a 240Gig SSD for my main laptop and replaced the D drive which really speeds up the machine.

Really expensive at first but now the price is coming down to a more reasonable price.

But expensive is all relative. I paid $800 for a 30 Megabyte Hard disk quite a few years ago. (MEGABYTES)

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP 1

I have two SSDs. One in my PC and another in my laptop. I would have a very difficult time going back to running an OS from anything with less capability than what an SSD gives me at the present.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Just recently switched the OS drive on my Gaming rig. I have been very happy with the results.

Although, I will say this;

This is still a fairly new technology. All the bugs have not been worked out. Just like any other component for a computer, there are definitely compatibility issues with the SSD media. Of course this isn't talked about very often, because no one has taken the time to test components to ensure stability and know what plays well with what. I am certain that after about 4-5 more years, all of the issues with the SSD media will be worked out just in time for the next new storage media to be released.
