SSD vs. HDD Performance Comparison

Rob from ASUS compares the boot times for the ASUS U36SD-A1 with 640GB HDD ($899) vs. the ASUS U36SD-XA1 with 160GB SSD ($1099).

Both notebooks have otherwise identical specifications with 2nd-Gen Intel Core i5-2410M processors, NVIDIA GT520M graphics, and 4GB of DDR3 1333MHz memory.

Just bought a 240 Gb SSD for 40$


I still use the traditional HDD in my laptop but relocated the pagefile.sys to my 250GB SSD. The PC boot up is done in less than 15 seconds. Application loads faster too (less than 15 seconds). Cheap price with very good performance boost. Don’t fix if it ain’t broke.

People have become so impatient nowadays. What is a thirty-second wait time? Think about it. You don’t have to spend so much that thirty-second wait time.

It’s not the machine that’s the problem…it is YOU. Time to improve yourself. Stop being impatient when you’re using the machine!

Do you guys realize you can put both into a Computer? Then set the SSD to handle the booting.

I’ve been shopping for a PC with SSD for about a few days now. I’ve been seeing a lot of computers that have a low gb SSD for a OS and have a high capacity HDD for additional intermal storage. Is there a benefit to this type of system or Should I just run a full SSD (like 1tb). This desktop will be used solely for creating multimedia.

HOWEVER the one im ready to pay for cost around 200 dollars and have 500 gb memory. while my current one that is a hdd has 750 GB. what is agood way to go here? i need advice 🙁

Viklar Exnol says:

I want an SSD, but the storage is so small and it isn’t cheap. I might just use it for my main programs and games.

I didn’t have to watch this video to know that SSD is faster than a traditional Hard drive. Step up to PCIe flash storage hard drive.
