SSD Solid State Drives
« on: April 02, 2016, 03:53:35 PM »
So yeh I got an SSD.

I decided because SSD's are getting cheaper and because of the performance boost they 'supposebly' give, that I would get one.

Windows now loads (ready to use) in less than 25 seconds. My apps and programs respond much better and the games I've tried so far run much more smoothly.

My PC is still a potato but it's a faster potato.

Does anyone know any good tips about using an SSD?

I have an internal and external SSD too. Its much faster than a normal HD indeed. I thought an SSD will last longer (in absence of moving parts), but later I heard that an SSD can easily go broke too.

Not "reading" does wear an SSD but "write on it" do. Therefore don't use an SSD as virtual memory but increases instead your RAM...
