I upgraded from a Western Digital VelociRaptor (which is a 10,000 RPM SATA hard drive) to a lowly little G.SKILL Falcon which has a read/write spec of 230/135 thanks to the Indilinx controller, but I immediately noticed a speed increase for everything. The first thing I noticed was a faster restart time (or "bootup time" for those of you who don't leave your system on 24/7). The 2nd thing I noticed was that literally everything takes much less time to open. Everything felt like it was already loaded into memory (well ok, except for Firefox, but I always keep like 15-20 tabs open too).

So overall, my system immediately felt much snappier. I could instantly tell a difference, and it made my almighty VelociRaptor actually feel slow and sluggish for the first time. When I bought the VelociRaptor, I was upgrading from a 250GB 7200.10 (which of course is a Seagate Barracuda). So back then, I thought that the VelociRaptor was very quick and snappy! I loved it!! But once I upgraded to the Falcon, I could no longer stand using the VelociRaptor.

It is all about the access/seek time. Even though it's only a difference of roughly 7-8 milliseconds on paper between the Falcon and the VelociRaptor, it adds up VERY quickly when anything is opened or accessed (or when Windows is starting up). I mean, when something is opened, it's not just a single access and then the program is opened. Instead, it's many, many, many accesses all combined in order to open what you want to open. So having an access time of almost 0ms (HD Tune 2.55 says 0.1ms) makes for a huge difference that is felt quite easily because all of those combined seeks/accesses add up.

Oh, and 1,000ms is 1 whole second.

But if you want to spend 2$ per gig, where as I got a 1tb drive for 70 dollars that writes faster, go ahead.
This is why I stated the fact above that it's not just one single access when you open a program or something. It is MANY. How many? I don't know yet, but that's because I don't care yet. But regardless of that, this means they (all of the individual accesses or seeks) all add up very quickly thereby making the difference between a hard drive and a solid state drive quite large and very easy to notice. I know this is true because I am speaking from experience!

Oh, and by the way: your write speed might LOOK faster on paper, but it's still much slower due to the seek/access time. After all, when you write data, it's not just one single access to write what you told the drive to write. Instead, it is many which all add up in a hurry thereby making it feel slow and sluggish in comparison to a solid state drive. Does this sound familiar? It should!

Also, what is your deal here? You're calling everyone "idiots", but yet you aren't even able to speak from experience. So who's the idiot here? Until you know from personal experience, you can't say anything. It's much better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. After all, if you don't say anything, then they have no evidence.

So for the last time: you are wrong, and you can't prove us otherwise because you do not have any experience with SSDs to back you up.

So I got mine for $119.99 too, and they refunded my shipping lol. totaled out to a $50 dollar refund. 4k~89mb max, 79mb min, 86mb avg, 0.1 seek, 165 burst. Oh yea, 1.5 second shutdowns, 13 second start up's FROM PUSHING THE POWER BUTTON, yes that's bios screens included. 1.5 second restarts.

@maetherous, or whatever your name is, You DO REALIZE that 95% of windows 7 is READS right? Hence the fact that I bought an ssd FOR OS AND THE ONE GAME I PLAY, and I have a 1tb short stroked Seagate for EVERYTHING ELSE. Which I might add is faster than your spinpoint lol.
I would love to see your SSD do 80+MB/s. It would be the fastest single SSD ever. I want to see.
Ahh!

I was mistaken because I'm a noob in the ssd game. I was using hd tune and setting it to 4k and I thought that was what everyone was talking about. Then I used um..... as ssd benchmark or something. It's avg. 30, max 33, min 28. I apologize for the noob confusion.

The best I can get is 361mb on 8mb in hd tune. I'm VERY VERY happy with this thing. The best part is, I don't download anything like music or movies, so with my COMPLETE system, bfbc2, and all the programs I use, it's only got 24gb used and 35gb free.
