    I have fast start up turned off, but not because I've had any problems (I haven't). I have a laptop with a 'spinner'. I routinely hibernate it when not in use, that start up 'fast' too. When I shut down it's usually because I want to boot from a USB, I don't get a choice of boot devices with fast startup turned on.

    The OP may be referring to Windows 10 Fast Boot and not The BIOS one.

    That is the case if you read posts. Many bios's do not even have a bios fast boot option.

    depending on your mother board type fast boot from bios can keep you from getting back into bios because fast boot at start up bypasses the all the start up checks and boots past the access bios functions. i think and i had this problem with a gigabyte board. just a reminder. correct me if i am wrong on this.

    Well, for me, Hybrid Boot / Fast Boot in Windows 10 makes no difference, the system boots quite fast without using it... even if I use an HDD. I have to agree with that user, but not because I don't like SSD's, but I feel them not as reliable, even with the fact that they don't have mobile parts... but those write and read limits and such still worries me... that was my reason to buy a 7200 RPM spinner instead of an SSD... well, that and capacity, 1 TB for me nowadays is a must... and that was insanely expensive for an SSD...

    In my case, I disabled hibernation, and taht means no fast boot for me, which I don't really need, I can reach desktop in 5 secs... that is quite fast and enough for me ^^

    Ah! I was forgetting, I've heard that SSD's need Fast Boot disabled to not shorten their liefspan... I guess that's a rumour only (Although seems meaningless to enable that, being SSD's quite fast already...).

    Just my two cents, tho.

    Windows 10 Home x64 (Laptop), Windows 10 Pro x64 (Desktop)

    I'm running 3 PCs with SSDs from Intel, SanDisk & Samsung which are now between 3 and 5 years old. All still show 100% life remaining using the supplied SSD management utilities. Having said that, I've never had a hard drive fail either.

    Those read/write limits are so last decade. Modern ssds have far more resilience that early generation ssds. A modern ssd will outlast an HDD even with heavy usage. Nice thing about ssds, is unless electronics fail, they fail in a more controlled manner, unlike hdds where you get all sorts of bad sector errors.

    It is more likely the electronic interface will crap out first, and risk of that is same on an HDD.

    I was replying to this post, Fast boot, is it a good thing or bad ?

    On a side note: If it was always referred to as "Windows Fast Startup" it wouldn't be confused with the "BIOS Fast Boot". I'm as guilty as anybody else for miss stating it. Had to do a couple of edits in this thread.

    I don't really see any point of buying an SSD if your aim is to just boost system performance. SSDs are still expensive today even though the technology is years old.
