    Hey I've been lookin' into SSDs. Would you guys recommend them?
    I thought about getting this: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0031X8HG2/?tag=tec06d-20

    Or do you think it would just be a money wasted toy? I mean... for that price I could get a 2TB hard drive... lol.

    Yes, no... I don't know, could you repeat the question?

    As Windows disk, sure they're nice. If you want that 2TB storage, go for that.



    Let's turn your question around.

    What Dan is trying to say is that it depends on what you need. If you download large files all the time then go for the 2TB drive, because honestly who needs 0.01ms access time for porn? The SSD is mainly for the OS and applications, you'd be an idiot to store porn on the SSD. What a waste of space!

    It would be to boot Windows 7 fast ... I'm just blown away at how fast they are but I am wondering if you guys think the performance increase is worth the money$$$.
    Oh and Kantastic XD I laughed at your reply! ahahahhaa. but.. the pr0n loads so much faster :(

    I think they're worth it only if you get enough space for all your apps. I personally don't see the need to just put Windows on an SSD and leaving everything else for a regular hard drive. But if saving 10 seconds of boot time is that important then go for it.

    Most WD SSD reviews I've seen have it being somewhat underwhelming for the price.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. I wasn't recommending it. I picked that one because it was the cheapest, had a good rating and was the same price as the one in his link on Amazon.
