Wow that was longer than intended lol.
mechinical only surpasses the low end of the SSD, it takes raid 0 to get even remotely close to a SSD 200mb+ reads

There was a post a week or so back about "post your restart times", SSds, mine included, were booting in 30-40sec while good harddrives in raid 0 were taking 60-70sec... Might not sound like much, but once you go SSD theres no looking back..

Basically, a super shiny nice flash drive. Without the USB.

Based on what criteria? From a pure performance perspective a good ssd will always beat a HDd (some exceptions like intels sequential write speeds not withstanding). However from a price // size // performance perspective it isn't so clear, as a good 120gb ssd can cost more than a 600gb velociraptor.

If you had 6gb sata ports a Crucial C300 would be even better tops out at like 350mbs read...but with those the writes are slow but the bigger you go with them the faster it gets in writes.

True, but nobody really goes SSD for pure storage due to cost/performance, if you have 3grand then a 1TB SSD would be pretty cool, but for everyone else then a boot drive is really all that's cost efficient..

So it "Copy paste" Faster? or for example Game installs, are they faster?

Reads definitely, writes only sometimes. Many SSDs are incapable of writing at speeds of their mechanical counter-parts, although this gap is decreasing and the random access times of SSDs nearly make up for this deficiency.

No the only thing that will be faster is read....now if you are coping from a SSD to another then yeah it will be heller fast but other then that, read speed is what the SSD will give you so all your stuff will load MUCH faster. Nothing like playing a MMO or CSS and being the first one in game cause your HD loaded everything almost instantly lol

Yeah but unless dvd drives can go faster then 22mbs to install something, writes are kinda pointless to me in the sense for SSD, as I would be more concerned how fast the sucker reads.

You'll notice the difference on game loading times, install times, application loading and installing times.

And of course file transfers.
