New cimputer hard drive

0patience0patience Oregon CoastPosts: 9,238 ✭✭✭✭✭
My son is setting up my computer with a new solid state hard drive tomorrow.
It's supposed to boot up and run faster. We'll see.
The hard drive is actually pretty small. 
Anyone running one of these solid state hard drives?

    If you run Windows, a solid state drive is absoloolee way more better. You will be astonished how much more quickly the thing boots up. I have just such a hard drive on the laptop I am writing from now. I hit the start button on the laptop and then cycle over to the wide screen TV I use as monitor. By the time I fire up the monitor, Windows is just about ready to run. It's an intense improvement.

    The only thin g is, of course, when patch patch patchitty patch Windows Tuesday requires a system reboot. But even that is faster.

    If you run Linux, where you simply leave the system run all the time, then you only boot up when the power to your house goes out. So it makes no diff.

    Storage, of course, is limited. If you have a big collection of files, you can either use a cloud solution (such as dropbox or etc.) or use a backup hard drive via USB (which is a wise backup to have regardless). So those special videos and music items are extra hassle. All my vids are on the Debian Linux box with two each terabyte drives. But even that has a solid state drive for system files, only because that's how the system came,,, not because it's needed.

    Go for it.

    SSD's are much more affordable now than ever before, and it sure beats the pricing years ago so there's no reason not to go with them now.
