Solid State Drive

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I finally made the switch from a standard HDD to a Solid State Drive.  I can tell you, its worth it.  I describe the experience now as my computer running like a hot knife through butter with regards to posting/booting into windows. What used to take literally 2-5 minutes of start-up routine and loading background tasks has turned into less than 30 seconds from post to desktop which includes entering a login password.  No slowing down or chugging post login. Instant speed and significant improvement with load times all around.  I went from 500Gig to 250Gig drive but it was worth it.  119.99 on Amazon.  I could never go back.

Also.. didn't have to re-install my OS.  Just used software to clone my HDD to my SDD.  It took less than 30 minutes,  swapped the boot priority in the BIOS and it was done.  Simple.

Upgrading to solid state storage makes a big difference, especially in a portable computer where you can’t upgrade the processor of graphics card. I’m sure the cost per gigabyte has gotten even better since the original post was made too.

Yep.  I just upgraded to an M.2 NVMe SSD last month.  Seagate Barracuda 510. 500GB drive for close to the same price I paid for the 250GB 850 EVO 3 years ago. Around $130 Canadian.
