What is your preference on ssd brands and is this a worthwhile deal? I'm looking at that sweet spot of capacity around 120-180gb
At just over a dollar per GB thats a good deal for an SSD. Good specs too. Read the Reviews before you buy. Look up sites that have done comparison reviews as well.
Yea, great drive :)
I hope the price comes down on these SSD's because I want one bad but the price and limited space is killing me. As for this SSD's, Crucial is a quality memory maker, SSD are made of memory chips, so I don't see any reason not to bounce on it.
Tivon, the price of SSD's are about half of what they were a year ago. I bought 2 SSD's and they both were well worth the price. The speed is not only noticeably faster but it destroys a traditional HDD.
Yeah, but I need a 512GB SSD to clone my main drive and that's like $600 or higher.
No... You dont need that much space... What on Earth is taking up 512GB??
Actually, 512Gb is pretty much the sweet-spot for an SSD for me, as well. My next build will have the OS on a 120Gb SSD, for cost reasons, but I would really prefer to have a lot more free FAST space. Getting into heavy multi-layer video production, I can tap out a pair of 7200RPM SATA drives in RAID, given I have the processing power. The next build will not quite be up to that level, but as processors evolve it is evident that for some uses the old style magnetic drives are becoming an evident bottleneck.
I like to keep my windows drive as clear as possible. Just windows and big programs like photoshop and autocad. The rest does not even touch this drive. Not even pictures.
Nice drive. Those write speeds are a killer though.... x[
those write speeds are a little bit on the low side for sata III drives but trust me
my friend has the m4 and it kills man
you wont even notice the difference in write speed between this and something like a vertex 3
unless you're moving files from ssd to ssd often (which you prolly wont be doing lol)
Andy, you have a point about the SSD to SSD.
I am using a Kingston v200Now SSD and it works very well. It took off about 15 seconds off boottime and installed Windows 7 in about 25 minutes or so when I first got it. I run my other hard drives as well and just access them when I need to. But my primary drive is a 128GB SSD. It gets the job done.
