    Solid state drives

    Has anyone got one?

    Ive got mine on my Windows desktop and its THE BEST upgrade you can do to a computer.
    Got an 80gig Intel X25-M and considering its one of the fat kids of the bunch, my computer starts in 1/3 of the time it took before. Its setup as a boot disk (obviously) and all the porn and stuff are in regular hard disks.

    Read and write speeds are increased at least by 150%, nowadays with SATA3 you can push up to 300+ MB/s...

    Ordered one for my Macbook now, got a Crucial C300 128Gb for almost half the price of the Intel from a year ago
    Dont panic, its organic.

    i got the same intel ssd a couple months ago. price was reasonable and the longevity of this drive should be pretty good considering it's flash memory. my system loads in about half the time, overall i'm very satisfied

    Re: Solid state drives

    Is there a way to move the original C drive over to an SSD without having to reinstall the entire OS and all programs? A clone of the installed C drive to the SSD so to say.

    My brother has one in his desktop and the speed in which it boots up is unbelievable.
    However, I'm still waiting for them to hit the price/size sweet spot before I get one.

    Even if source and destination drives/partitions have different sizes? RIght now I have reserved 100 GB for my C: drive on a 500GB HDD but the SDD will have no more than 80 or 120GB for sure...far too expensive still and I only need it to speed Windows and most used programs up.

    Not 100% sure if that might work. Gotta give it a try... if not installing the OS again is very fast.

    Re: Solid state drives

    Most partition manager programs can work around that.

    Absolute worst case:

    -Partition the 500GB off, then copy the (now) smaller "C"..unless you're keeping the 500 as a pure backup, then you can just format it out anyway.

    Re: Solid state drives

    I'm jealous. I just rebuilt my computer a while ago and wanted to go SSD, but at the time to get a total of 150gb space was like 500 dollars. It just wasn't worth it in my opinion. Now I want to get one.

    This OS is not the problem..installing all programs and gathering the usernames and passwords for them is the pain in the ass lol.
