    SSD worth it?


    I've had most types of hardware over the years but never had an SSD. Considering changing over now but unsure if worth the cost. Would be going with a 1 TB drive, either Samsung, Mushkin, or SanDisk. I have various software that should be able to do the move already so that part shouldn't be an issue.

    What are the ups and downs? Is it worth $300?

    In my opinion yes, a SSD is a major improvement. Apps and such are faster loading. I know no downs for having a SSD.

    Does your computer have the possibility of installing 2 hard drives?
    If so, a good compromise is to install the OS and applications to a smaller SSD and use a larger conventional drive for your data. This provides most of the advantages of an SSD at a lower cost.

    Yea, currently have 5 (but 2 are external). What size drive would I need for just the OS?

    The 1TB Mushkin is $250. I have several Mushkins. They are greart SSDs. I have also other makes (Intel, OCZ, Sandisk) but the Mushkins are the fastest. I will never buy a spinning disk again. SSDs is the way to go.

    Lulz, I can install pretty much anything. This is the first PC I've had in 20 years or so that I didn't build from scratch.
