Because they just don't care. That's why. To them, it's not important. Let them have fun with their setup while you have fun with yours

It's worth noting that all these years before the SSD came up, not even one people I knew complained about hard drives. Now that this SSD histeria is everywhere everyone says that hard drives are slow and that SSD is the way to go. ***? Hard drives are suited me perfectly until now, and there's no reason why I should change to a SSD

You are right here turrican9. people spend $600 plus on motherboard/cpu sets and cut out ssd.

Using the excuse that they aren't "safe" or that the price per gig is too high is a cop out. You can get a 60gig ssd for $100 now a days and get great performance enhancements. Its not just about boot times, but about how snappy the system responds. you spend an extra $100 on better ram. Why not get 1333 instead of the 1600 or 1800 or 2000. but you do.

You start in on how he's wrong, about how price is an issue.

Own one. Go out and buy one and see. It took me a while to finally break down and get one myself and it was "THE BEST BUY I EVEN MADE" Computer technology has come a long way. regular hard drives are equal to CRT monitors. while it may still work great, and produce, your missing out on the benefits you havent even experienced yet.
This ^ really hit the spot!

Don't even bring CRT monitors into this, because they're STILL better than LCDs.

or

time taken for transcoding + price of one SSD
Except no, they don't, because you DON'T need 2 hdd's as an fps of ~30 will not make the hdd go crazy. Price of one 2tb harddrive vs price of the same amount of storage in ssd's? Good luck with that!
Defragging the hdd's is a good point however. Although I think anyone should do that (automatically) on a regular basis anyway.

I've been complaining about hard drives ever since my first 80MB one.

While I do not 100% agree with the OP, I do have to say I think most of us have just become accustomed to waiting on certain things with computers...example, when you first boot your PC and you go to launch Firefox it could take a good 10-15 seconds (for some reason) the first time you load it up.

SSD = 1 second its done.

You can say people are impatient, but I have come to believe that we live in the 21st century and its about GD time applications loaded with haste.

I do find it irritating at work when everything (application wise) is slow now compared to at home when everything seems just that much faster.

I will also say it is just like comparing a fresh install of windows to a 4 year old install.

Regardless it is still faster and I get what the OP is saying about "OMG IT'S GREAT!"

But, you need to realize when you are looking at 2+ TB drives for the same price as a fast 80GB SSD, if space is your vice why the hell would you spend the money on a expanding file folder compared to a file cabinet?

Another thing to point out is that this is still very new technology to the consumer grade. HDD have been around even before half the community was conceived.

Yet another point to pick at this is OCN. We can't OC a SSD so we need to grab them fast CPUs and GPUs to satisfy our itch.

Conclusion - SSD have their niche for now, and I have no doubt one day they will be in every computer and HDDs will be like those giant Mylar/Tape drives.

When you tell your grand kids about moving parts in a computer that sat outside of their head, they will laugh at you and call you an old fart.

Can't wait...that's why I roll SSDs
post #98 of 851
this thread is pretty useless without actual information.

I think its completely invalid to say that SSDs are the biggest mistake people make in new rigs, at this point is practically a luxury.

Thats like why didn't honda put a dual cylinder clutchless manual in their civic LX... i mean cmon honda, it would shift faster... yea but its not going to make it go any faster and would cost an arm and a leg on an entry level car. Truth of the matter is not everyone is using their 5GHz 2600K to its max potential, were all just enthusiasts that like new tech.


Keep in mind this won't stop me from dropping a chunk of my tax return on a vertex 3 240GB =D

post #100 of 851
I would love to get a SSD but currently there are 300GB of steam games installed on my C: and dont like the idea of having a small c drive.

When large SSD's are cheaper, I'm sure more people will buy them.

Few months ago, I bought my first HD video camera with no cassette tapes and no hard drive. it's very nice. But all videos are transferred to HDD's for storage. LOL
