How about you let others decide for themselves. You clearly dont have enough first hand experience with quality SSDs to know how good they can be.

Let other have first hand experience on SSD.

lots of HW stuff will come and go but i am happy with my rig.

@CS : there is no point in repeating your " no need " for SSD . why should we waste time on repeating and reiterating on the same points . You have educated No1 about the unimportance of SSDs . Let him use HDD alone and see how powerful it is .You cannot push the matter on an adamant mind . You can him when he accepts his misunderstanding . So leave the topic at rest .

hi



i use P4 HT,core2duo and i5 , i7,phenom2x6 all of them are in working status.A HW upgradation depends upon what you are going to do with it. if sum1 upgraded to SSD no points to degrade it.

Completely agree with that HDD is the slowest part (an electro-mechanical anachronism) which gets slower with time.

dear traders - pls recommend me a good SSD of 120/128 gb. i got confused with sandisk, kingston, samsung, intel etc. as price difference with same config is pretty wide. i need longevity and performance both! its urgent!

is there any other way to format the present HDD and reinstall windows and other apps on new SSD (once its fitted)? i mean do i have to do new installation of everything on SSD.

is there any cut, copy & paste type of method where i transfer all system/app files from HDD to SSD?

I would recommend Samsung SSDs.

You can in theory use a drive imaging application to get your existing Windows partition transferred to a new SSD. But I would strongly advice against that. Use Windows 8.1 and install it fresh on a SSD. Windows when installed on a SSD will configure itself slightly differently than how it configures itself on HDDs.

Do note that no storage medium is fully reliable. Both HDDs and SSDs are technically not significantly reliable. I would strongly suggest keeping a backup of all important data irrespective of what method you use for storage.

Here are a few things to consider when setting up a Windows system with SSD to maximize performance:

a. Make sure that you Install a fresh copy of Winows 7 or 8 on the SSD
b. Install all of your applications onto the SSD
c. Keep your stock database and any other frequently used data on the SSD.
d. Keep all media files (Audio, Video, eBooks, etc) on a non SSD disk
e. Keep around 10% of the SSD free
f. Use the SSD for the Windows page file and hibernation file.
g. Make sure that Windows is supporting TRIM and working with it on your SSD.

Basically you want all data except for your media files on the SSD. With modern windows, I would make a C drive with all the space on the SSD and keeping everything but your media files on the C drive.

With a core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a SSD, you should end up with a super fast system. Give us a report once you get the new system setup and running
