newbie here

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
im new to SSD's and i want to ask some questions before i decide buying one.

1. Will SSD degrade in time?
2. Will SSD slow down when i keep uninstalling apps/games? I heard that some junk gets left in registry and its not good for SSD's...
3. What SSD do you all recommend out of the 64GB ones?
post #2 of 3
1. yes, like any other storage unit, only slower than normal HDDs;
2.That's a Windows issue, not SSD's, windows will get slower in time. The more junk it has on the registry, the slower it will perform;
3.Any SSD with SandForce Controller, IMO
I need upgrades

1.yes, but so does every hdd. shouldnt be a reason to hold you back from buying one.
2. this is software related. it'll slow down your ssd, but if you had an hdd, it'd slow that down too.
3. people will probably throw numbers at you with i/o speeds or whatever. Just get the cheapest one with the sandforce controller. microcenter has a rebranded 64gb sandforce for cheap. the difference in performance between ssd is alot smaller than the difference between an ssd and a hdd.

also if you get an ssd, look up one of those guides to optimize it for windows.
make sure TRIM enabled, etc etc.
