What I've noticed from other threads - people that throw their computers into standby all the time (and thus never have to cold start their PC or their programs) don't praise SSDs as much as other people, or even at all.
For many programs HDD or SSD doesn't make a difference - but for a few the difference is enormous.
Perfect examples of no difference.... CCleaner, Defraggler, OpenOffice. They cold started just as fast on my HDD. (Unless my HDD was busy already - if you force an HDD to multitask, its performance drops like a rock. The SSD gives you uniform high performance. thumb.gif)
Perfect examples of a noticeable difference... web browsers, and any Microsoft program.
Perfect examples of HUGE differences... BF3. I think tossing it onto an SSD drops the loadtime (from a WD Green) by 60%? Massive. I wish they had tested a fast HDD too, though.

yeh my M4 means im the first person onto a map 99% of the time. I think it wen from about 3 minutes load time on maps to about 20 / 30 seconds.
