upgraded my 250gb sata to ocz vertex 2 100gb, windows don't show welcome screen, it just shows the desktop , and office 2007 installed less then 1 min o.o
even i was mind boggled how fast it is.
SSD's do come with the bleeding edge price tag, but for an awesome boost in I/O performance (and a very noticeable boost in everyday user interface speed) a hybrid SSD might go along way for a much more palatable price tag.
I bought the Seagate Momentus XT 500GB 7200RPM drive end of last year to replace the standard drive that shipped with my laptop and I can highly recommend it to anyone. While it doesn't increase write performance, the read cache really does make everything feel *snappier*.
See the detailed Anandtech review.
I bought mine on the Prophecy store, I see it's now going for R1100.
Has anyone tried to run two SSD's in a raid 0 array? Curious to know if there will be any performance gain?
Why in gods name was this SSD used for a review!? Mybb should rather review the upcoming OCZ Vertex 3. Check http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/forum/showthread.php?85336-Vertex-3-Reviews for benchmarks. Simply mindblowing performance from these drives. Now this bad boy can't be here any sooner!
- Low power consumption
- Completely silent
- Minimal heat generation
- Garbage Cleaning technology promises good performance over extended period of time
- Nice upgrade bundle kit
- SSD technology is still ridiculously expensive, and R14,000 for a 512GB hard drive feels a bit insane
- 512GB is not a lot of disk space to work with these days, even as an OS drive
