    That's already done in small devices like phones etc. VLSI printed straight on the board.

    The next best thing is the PCIe storage.

    Murphy's 1st law of warehousing: "Whatever the space, it will be filled up".
    That goes right along with nature abhors a vacuum. I worked 30 years in warehousing and can attest to the truth of the Murphy law.

    Sad part is, it goes the same for my room. Oh well, spring is coming, got to empty room for renovations anyway.

    You always take things in a different way.
    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.
    Everyone has different needs and wants. My desktop system is using only 65GB of my 128GB SSD since my data goes on WD Black HDDs. A serious gamer would require far more space on an SSD.

    My notebooks, on the other hand, are little, one-drive wonders. Since I'm too spoiled by the speed of SSDs, I had to use 500GB SSDs in them to avoid losing storage space. The notebooks are used just for travel (and emergency backup for my desktop machine) so I don't need as much storage space as my desktop machine.

    I've found the speed of data access on the WD Blacks in my desktop to be plenty fast for me. SSDs wouldn't really be much of an improvement unless I was moving large chunks of data all at once. The times I do need to move a large amount of data, I just start the process, then go do something else, like make a pit stop, grab a snack, take a nap, watch TV, etc., stuff I would want or need to do anyway.

    My backup drives are pokey 5400rpm WD Greens. Since they run only around and average of ten minutes a day each, I don't mind how slow they are and love how much less they cost. I run my backups while watching the news on TV so it's not like I'm having to stare cross-eyed at a monitor bored out of my skull while waiting for them to spin up and index.

    Just a poorly titled article to catch readers' attention. But it's a good read.

    I can probably write about "Why Windows 10 is obsolete?" and talk about flatness of graphics ( which of course affects "speed" in a good way).
    Things like that are called click-bait.

    I'd rather just see SSD prices be on par to hard drives. My hard drives could stand to be replaced by SSDs, only if the 3 TB ones were only $200!

    I agree.
    That's a much better way to respond to what I said rather than putting words into my mouth. I didn't say SSDs are worthless. I got 5 of them.

    I have three—one 128GB and two 500GB—with another possible 500GB in looming in the near future. I don't believe in buying spare drives since, once you buy them, the warranty clock starts counting down. Also, prices normally keep coming down over time so buying a drive before I need it will usually wind up costing me more than it would if I had waited. It doesn't take long to get one shipped to me when I do need to get a replacement (I could get it overnight but, generally, el cheapo shipping will get it to me in two or three days). I can always use one of my notebooks and/or one of my backup drives if a drive goes belly up in my desktop machine while waiting for a replacement drive. If the SSD in one of my notebooks dies, I can always use another notebook until I get it replaced. If it dies while I'm on the road, I can swap it out with one of my backup HDDs I carry with me (I carry two backup HDDs; one is a clone and the other is for images and new data; I also backup new data on the clone).

    I think the big difference here is that you are using a laptop. Maybe the same case with Lee.
    I use all of my SSDs just for OS on my 2 desktops. Data goes to HDDs and NAS drives.

I have a dual boot system with two SSDs, with Windows 8.1 on one and Build 10240 on the other. At this stage I am confused by all the Microsoft posts about upgrading. Will I be able to upgrade to the new Build on the 29th on my Build 10240...

Solved SSDs detected as CF?
I have 5 drives installed on my PC (1 HDD and 4 SSDs, the rest are just partitions). I am just wondering what does CF means on 2 of the SSDs. Does it stand for "compact flash"? How to fix this? Or should I just leave it alone? 6911
