[Guru3D] KingSpec P2U38-2T 2TB SSD Review - Capable of 4000 MB/s - Page 6

post #51 of 65
Great thing about any old external HDDs if you have them, is that if they run off the USB 2.0 interface, you can usually get a tonne more speed out of them by moving them into a USB 3.0 caddy. Definitely worked with my old school Seagate 500GB ones (got them around 4 or 5 years ago and are still running nicely).

Anymore than a 500GB SSD for gaming and it's really just paying for convenience rather than ideal usage scenario - unless God forbid you actually manage to play more than 10 games in one day. biggrin.gif
Archive HDD's are the bane of my existence. I have the 700 GB of SSD storage, but I'm lucky I have my 1tb drive (of which I might get a second one), I keep the files I use less frequently on there, such as old projects, model material repositories, some old games, and all the files from my old install of Windows.

I just got the three drives because I was originally planning on getting two 250GB SSD's, but then Newegg one of the drives I was looking at on a 33% off Shell Shocker, and decided it would be worth paying an extra $50 more than I planned to get an extra 250GB, and more speed.

I just love WD though, I haven't had one fail me yet, but I also find it easier to remember colors than fancy object names that Seagate uses. I still have my two Samsung HDD's that are almost 10 years old. Fast? No. Reliable? Haven't had an issue, just wish they were more than 70 GB each.

Hitachi is just there though. I simply refuse to buy a drive from a company that makes drill bits, power tools, and excavators, I just won't.
RAM? This Rams all the Competition.

so the company with the most historical experience in building bearings is the company you DON'T want to buy something where bearings are vital?

Next you'll be telling us you don't want to fly on planes powered by engines made by a company that makes dishwashers! wink.gif

Build one of these:
4 x 60gb Mushkin SSD in raid 0. I increased my performance by about 50% over the SATA6.

It can be, but it doesn't work for as many people.

The PCB should have been pink because staring at such a card all day is what I would do, using it is for nubs, pro's stare all day long.
