Again, 4k speeds. And access time. Let's see your HDD hit .1 ms.

Plus I get 133MB/s read, not bad and 125+ MB/s writes. So with this alon makes that ssd seems kinda worthless to get if all you want is speed. Faster writes. Failboat that, and go ahead and spend more money on a ssd thinking you are getting something faster.

Blowing your wads of cash for faster reads, so fast you can't even tell the diffrence between a ssd and a spin point. You idiots can't even tell the physical diffrence between .1ms and 4.8 ms because the human mind is incapable of even seeing the diffrence of those 2 times. But if you want to spend 2$ per gig, where as I got a 1tb drive for 70 dollars that writes faster, go ahead.

For one, the average computer user spends more time reading data than writing it. If you spend a lot of time writing data, than you're probably using a large 1-2TB HDD and not a much smaller SSD. Secondly, the huge snappiness of SSDs is not all about the read and write speeds, another advantage is the next to zero access time. Spinning hard drives are mechanical so they have to move the drive reading head to where the data is, in order to read the data, as apposed to an SSD that has no moving parts and can pretty much access the data instantly. Third, this isn't the only SSD out there. There are a ton of Sandforce based SSDs that have much better write speeds of a max of about 275MB/s. Believe me, if you actually owned a SSD and it was a decent one, you'd be singing a different tune.

Well when they start making 1tb ssd's for 70 dollars, until then I will stick with mechanical drives for a long time. I download multiple large programs and videos at once so having a snappy large mechanical drives is better suited for fast write then a expensive ssd that has no where near the storage. Unless of course you want a 1tb ssd pci card that costs 4k$, no thanks. The only thing ssd's are really good for is sysem drives. But for media and such then it's mechanical all the way.

I could easily afford one, but why waste the money on a drive that would last 2 weeks. I would fill it up so fast I would just replace it with a large mechanical drive fairly quickly.

No one cares about stupid 512MB we care about 4k which is use more than 512MB..You HDD will get around 1MB/s 4k while an SSD will get around 20-30+ 4k ..which are reads/writes that people actually use.

First off, there are alot of SSDs that are faster than 133MB/s read..like uh more than double faster..and some that are faster than 125MB/s write as well.

Second..no one gives a **** about sequential..for some reason you don't understand that. OS drives rarely use those functions..they do however use functions that deal will smaller amounts of data. And SSDs acces times are .01 ms and HDDs are..at the LEAST..say 8.0 ms. You are not mentioning how hdd maybe can reach 200 IOPS and most SSDs now reach 40-60+ THOUSAND.

I don't know why you think you know it all, but you don't. If you would just listen and read maybe you will learn. I promise you that SSD are WAYYYYYY faster. Really, bet me..

Right, people can't tell the difference between .1ms and 4.8ms (A very fast HDD that I have yet to see..), but multiply those by the IOPS and then the gap gets much bigger.

Finally, it seems some sense is entering your brain. Yes, right now SSD are good for OS drives, and not so much storage. Most people who have SSDs will agree with that.

I would suggest just spending $120 on a 64GB C300 and then come back. You will really tell the difference and you will be amazed why you were so naive. I am not saying this to be mean, I am really trying to help you out. There is a reason why once you have a SSD you will never have another HDD as an OS drive again.
