Is a small SSD worth it? (60GB) - Page 3

post #21 of 36
Short answer...yes.....follow the guide slickwilly posted, I accidently booted to my backup HD the other day and thought I had real problems because it seemed so slow...you will be spoiled after too! Some are faster than others but bottom line is any are still alot faster than a spinning disk....enjoy

I own a crucial m4 just for an OS. I'd say. Yes yes yes a thousand times. The load/boot time for your OS is outstanding. I'll never go back to a platter for my OS ever again. Even if it did die I would buy another.

After getting my c300 I followed the guide here on OCN in regards to rebooting in audit mode I ran the xml script, changed paths in variables for temp files, turned off updates after sp1 update and things have been running smooth as a baby's backside since. Total install of OS w/ tweaks = 20 minutes (had forsight to print out first post of FAQ and put the .xml on a small thumb drive)
As for install's of programs, I do a custom install and change install path to d:\\ and have not had a problem with any app I run/load/install
Still have like 20gigs left out of 59 after format...

Boot time is screaming fast compared to the boot time on my platter drive... After orbs come togeather, logo is up for a fraction of a second before I am shuttled off to desk top, total time = 6 sec.

Yes and since we only use 10% of our brains you can short stroke it as well
be screaming fast but still not as fast as a Positronic conversion
(man I can't wait for that to hit the market)

Forget that SSD, buy a cru m4.

I use a 60g SSD for my OS, League of Legends, Office 2011 and a whole lot more, I still have 20 gigs free....

Just avoid 30gb ssds, buddy has one and its hell making space.. lol

ps im not a crucial user, but i made the mistake of buying an ocz vertex 3(which i have had no problems with).. just i could have better speed with the m4
