I really need to go SSD.  I still have crappy 7200 rpm HDs that click and drag,  they’re probably dying.

I recently bought this SSD, it hasn’t come in yet but I will probably be restarting my computer all day to see the boot speeds xD

Yes, SSD do get slower as they fill up, recommend to leave 10 to 15% free for normal operation

Ratherkool says:

Now did you install this drive with UEFI bios settings mode ?
or was it regular installing with just MBR from windows OS ?
every one should know installing it with UEFI mode bios your drive boots up loads faster then in MBR installing settings.
and UEFI mode bios helps protect your SSD drive from malware and viruses from getting installed on your SSD drive !

keving52002 says:

i  had a Kingston Hyper x it lasted for two maybe two and a half years. wonder what happened . Thought it was supposed to last longer ,I have mechanical hard drives that are at least 12 years old that still work.

Zapren Kostadinov says:

Hi. What would I need to migrate my HDD to this one? Just a single SATA3 to USB cable?

Adroel Rostata says:

I bought this drive couple of weeks ago. Restart over Shut Down Ratio went up exponentially. Worth every penny.

Hoss Cartwright says:

My CPU cache is faster ;-D

Isaac Cloud says:

I need to finally upgrade and add an SSD. Prices are definitely going in the right direction.

Kristopher Michaels says:

I want to switch over but for the size we have now it would cost us a hell of a lot of money to switch to Terabytes hard drives. When they come down more (Glad they are coming down) they will be must haves.

Frederick Hovin says:

I like the “… I don’t care about the unboxings…” in the Kodak.. It has more swag.. :v This one is cool too.. Hahaha.. It’s unique.. You have to put it more often..

Dominick Buffaline says:
