(In store only) Micro Center 64GB SSD $79.99 - Page 5

post #41 of 52
I picked one of these up yesterday.
Speedy little drives!
I've had 4 different indilux based SSD's and this sandybridge is a step above even in my little 3-core laptop.
now i have to order a caddy for the second drive bay to throw in the OE 500GB for media and large game install data.

The SSD is getting OS + productivity software + TF2 and L4D2

I would like to see two 7200RPM regular HD's in RAID beat a C300 on a SATA III port. Or for that matter best the speed of the new Vertex 3 that has been reviewed several times now.

There really is no comparing spinning platters to solid state non-volatile memory.

Especially an ssd that runs at Sata 6gbs. Not to mention that raid0 hdd array has a much higher chance of failure compared to a single ssd drive.

SSDs are still faster than Raid0.

lets just let Sparky believe his striped array is as fast as even an old indilux SSD for windows tasks and game load times and general all-around slick-ness.

Of course, we know he's quite mistaken.

Not really, he's not. SSD will not be a viable tech in the true sense of that word for another half a decade. Maybe more, depending on how long it takes the global economy to recover.

Anyways, with proper skill and components a RAID0 HDD setup can be made that will not only outperform whatever SSD tech has to offer, where it matters in real world applications that is, but do it for less, much, MUCH less, currency-wise. We don't even have to mention the issue of lacking capacity on the SSD front, do we?

This is not true, and no mechanical hard drive will ever match the access times of a SSD.

What makes SSD performance so stunning is the access time, which is 80 times faster than even the best mechanical hard drives.

You can RAID 0 a bunch of 10K RPM drives and you'll get great sequential read and write speeds (I had 4 raptors in RAID 0, and that setup cannot even come close to matching the speed of a single SSD, except in sequential read / write, which doesn't really matter).

I currently have 3 SSDs in RAID 0 and they are faster (sequential read / write) than 4 raptors, not to mention the access time (which is what really matters) is 80 times faster.

Now that SSDs are getting pretty cheap, there's no point for enthusiasts to be using mechanical HDs (aside from storage obviously), or if they can't yet afford a SSD.

Next time I have to open 50 applications in less than 30 seconds I'll let you know.

The only reason I finished watching that video was because Van Halen is an amazing guitarist.

Is the deal over? It says $100.

I'm considering picking this up, would it be worth it for a netbook (1.66Ghz atom)?
