Hard drive speed is probably something you don't really notice, until you vastly improve it.  :thumb:  I'm a bit confused, though.  That one seems to be a 60Gb drive, so have you got two of them, the other being 1Tb, Terry?

solid state is phenomenally fast.. still I'm limited by the speed that the computer can pipe the data... when you hit that, you are screwed no matter what.

 :o very impressive. I really fancy ditching mechanical drives myself, my only reservation being i've read that the number of read / write functions the drives can do are limited and the drive will slow down and eventually die. What is the projected life of these SSD drives ?

also remember there is no way of getting data back if the hard drive gets messed up, its not written on surface anymore.

The only data that is contained on the new SSD is the operating system as the rest is stored on the 1TB storage HD  :leer:

perfect, so you get all the speed advantages of the SSD without quiet the worry...but the answer is simple, multiple backups.. offsite backups... maybe I'm just paranoid.
