    Use both.. an SSD for the OS/Programs and a spinner for data. That's the best way to make use of them, IMO

    Exactly. I have 3 SSD's and 1 1TB harddrive. I dual boot Win 7 and Win 10 preview on two of the SSD's and use the Hard Drive for data, games, backups etc. The other SSD is cloned to whatever OS I am using (Win 7 for now) and is removable and stored. All drives are removable with the adapters so when I install new OS, or previews, I just eject all drives but the one I am installing on. No boot errors or any issues.

    It's nice when a case has bays for removable drives, just have to pull it out a bit so it disconnects.

    Yeah makes it easy. Mine has levers that you just pull and it ejects the drive.

    I have these on my test rig. One has 8.1, the other has w10. I slide out the w8 drive when I install W10. Once it is "stable", I can either remove it and slide in W8.1 or leave them both in and select the OS I want during boot up. This is $17, Vantec NexStar SE MRK-525ST Dual 2.5 - Newegg.com

    The ssd's seem to be getting lower in price and higher in capacity :-). I run a 256 ssd as the main and store data on a 1tb spinner
