My point is it's a waste of money and impractical. I didn't say it's worthless. But if you really want it, by all means get it.
I got 5 SSDs and 1 of them is 250 GB that is just lying around. Everything I am using is only 120GB as 120 GB is more than enough for OS and programs. I don't need more than 120 because I want my data separate which goes to 1TB spinners. And the reason for separating them is so that I wouldn't have to worry about my data if I am experimenting or needs to fix my PC when I encountered problems. Plus it's always faster to backup/image a system without the data (between 2 and 5 minutes).
If I buy a 480GB for OS and programs alone, wow, I don't why I should do that. But it seems that you have your OS and data sharing a drive so good luck with that. Or maybe you have 480GB worth of programs alone. I don"t know.
Anything less that 500GB is a waste of space, they fill far too quickly for me.
Murphy's 1st law of warehousing: "Whatever the space, it will be filled up".
I just have OS and software installed on my HDD.
I do have a 2nd HDD where i host Virtual Machines but that's by design rather than storage limitation.
I used to use for storage but the lag waiting for them to spin up after being parked drove me nuts.
