SSD drives started at $5-6 per Gb, now for less than $2/Gb (and with a rebate - now expired but keep your eye out for another one - close to $1/Gb) this 96Gb unit fits the bill nicely. Plenty of room for the Win7 OS and all the program files I currently have (my current system measures something like 60Gb) in addition to future programs, and wicked-fast speeds.
This has been - hands-down - the best improvement / upgrade my system has seen. Of course these units will continue to drift down in price, and according to all the reviews there are faster units out there, but for the 'bang for the buck' factor you can't go wrong.
With an older motherboard (as I mentioned 2006) there was no provision for ACHI mode in the BIOS, so I'll have to dig around to figure out whether the TRIM function can be enabled through Win7. (MS Knowledge Base 922976 apparently will enable this SATA driver, but I have yet to see that error message indicated).
The instructions that came with the system was surprisingly short (hardly any use to it) but I just plugged it in, entered the BIOS and saw that the drive was immediately recognized. (Make sure to unplug your existing boot drive for installation of Windows to the SSD.Read more ›
I own one of the older 64GB Kingston SSD and it's barely large enough to hold Windows 7, with office, etc thus one of the reason's I had to replace the current SSD on my Windows machine which is already full.
The second SSD was for my Mac mini. Now the performance improvement there was astonishing since I can actually code and use programs without having to wait forever to open them. Safari for example used to take around 5 bounces to open but now opens instantly under 1 bounce in the dock! Even garageband which used to take the longest to open at around 15 bounces only takes around 5 now. It's like getting and entirely new machine on the Mac and is definitely worth it for that. And anyone knows that's used a Mac already know how fast they boot but under 10 seconds is ridiculous. I had to do a double take and actually watch my mac mini reboot since it was so fast I thought it never did a complete reboot in first place but it did!
On a side note a Florida Company Sues Apple Because OS X Boots Too Fast!
On a Windows machine if you already own a raptor or other 10,000 rpm drive like I used to before getting an SSD it's not that impressive of an upgrade. Window Experience Index is a 6.9 for this drive. HDTune gives around 211 MB/sec average transfer rate with 106MB/sec minimum and 224MB/sec maximum as you can see in the screenshots I took.
Yeah it boots up fast but if you are already using hibernation it's not a game changer and actually if you are used to the larger raptors it's actually annoying since you have to keep an eye on running low on disk space. With most programs you won't notice the difference in opening times of different applications like on the mac.Read more ›
Boots to WinXP desktop with Skype etc. up and running about 3 times faster. Everything loads very quickly (quiet and cool too.) A McAfee Virus Scan seems to run a lot faster. The only downside is that the Kingwin adapter's activity led (and thus the activity led on the front of the Dell) doesn't blink when this drive is accessed. So I added a little tray applet to take the place of the activity led.
