SSHD, any good? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
120 is plenty for Windows and most used apps of choice playing with w/e free space you get after os installation, for huge storage that's why you get your average mechanical Drive imo, since SSD price to storage is not in a sweet spot yet, hell I even put 1 or 2 games im hooked the most and is ok thumb.gif

I agree with this. I've had a 120GB SSD for a couple years now and it's enough for your OS + some applications and maybe a couple games

But it's not enough for everything. 240GB SSD would be a really good idea. But back to your original question, SSD vs SSHD. The flash cache is very small but can make a big difference in boot up times. Still, an SSD is probably the best option in this case. SSHDs are really more geared towards laptop users where you only have 1 drive in your system. See this: http://youtu.be/Sj-MzweNqFM?t=8m23s It's a way to squeeze speed out of the hard drive, not necessarily to squeeze space out of a SSD if you catch my drift. Hope this helps. thumb.gif

Appreciate the help guys! Currently I have your typical mechanical hard drive, which is fine for loading games, I don't mind waiting on games to load a bit.
I'll snag an SSD when I can
