    Very true. You can buy 240 GB models now for less than what I paid for my first 128 GB model. I guess what I was saying, and this is my point of view, is that for data storage a spinner works just fine and I'm in no rush to spend the extra money on a 1 TB or more SSD for that purpose.

    Totally agree. When I finally get an SSD all I really need is about 128GB for the OS and Programs/apps. And I can get a nice one for about 65$ via Tigerdirect.

    Using an SSD for storage is just a waste of money and could be used on better things. imo.
    I would rather have a solid spinner for data any day. But that's just me and your mileage may vary on this one.

    I agree. Large capacity SSD's are very expensive when compared to a spinner of the same capacity, so having a spinner for a large amount of Data still makes sense. The lower capacity drives though are getting very affordable and work great for running Windows from. That's the direction I'm heading.

    Heck, I just paid less for a 240G ssd than I paid for my first 64G ssd!

    SSDs will eventually replace the old spinning platter drives and prices will plummet. Their durability is as good as a HDD, or very near to them, I have 4 so far.

    No RAID or any arrangement of HDD, even with a SCSI 15,000 RPM, can come close to SSD performance. Nearly instantly opening apps, fast GFX rendering, Fast video transcoding, etc. Oh, did I mention less then 30 second reboots? Some with Win 8 get 12 seconds.

    I have to wonder if soon PCs may not "boot" at all. Maybe there will be a snapshot of the state of the machine at one particular microsecond. The ram will all be static(except perhaps for some performance cache) so no data loss on power down. When you power on the memory state will strobe from frozen to "live" and the CPU will start CPUing again.

    I'm not enough of an engineer to know how exactly they would do it. I just feel like things are moving there.

    There's good plan Miles.

    They are also SAS drives, not SATAIII which will limit quick adoption.

    Great find. :)

    Personally, I would never buy a hard drive (or SSD) more than 1TB in size. I would rather get 4x1TBs. Recovering files from corrupted 1TB will take you up to a day. Think about scanning a 4TB drive. It will take you a week to recover and sort out your files. With one 4TB, if something goes wrong, you are done. With 4x1TB, what are the odds of having 4 of them go kaput all at the same time? Unless your house was caught on fire. :) But this is me.

    I have 10 HDDs & 2 SSDs altogether excluding the ones in my PCs. Some of them I use for testing OSes.

    Nice setup badrobot. How well does the Qnap SAS work?
