mario rouilla: I don't think people get it the difference between the two. SSD are way faster in transfer rate and acces time, consume less power and is shock resistant. It's all electronics. A good desktop HDD have 150 MB/sec transfer rate (a lot less for laptop hdd) while a good SSD can saturate a modern sata 3 interface, about 550MB/sec read/write. Acess time for an HDD is about 12 msec in very best circonstance while SSD have typical .1 msec. Don't forget that HDD get fragmented all over the disk easily which prolongue horribly the acces time into seconds while there is files fragmentation on an ssd, it make no difference in access time. All memory cells have the same figure. There is no comparaison, SDD are better then HDD in every way. The only hold up now is the cost of an SSD memory cell (nand) which is higher but has been fallen dramatically from the last years. So in 2 years the HDD is a dead horse for most computer except data center. The best scenario for now is having an ssd for windows and applications with a regular hdd for data storage. However this is out of question for a laptop.

aaron: what else will be noticeably faster (other than boot time) if i put my OS on an SSD? my computer already turns on completely in under 30 sec

Rakashin7: If your building a PC, get a 120Gb SSD for your applications and a 1TB HDD to store your photos, movies, games, etc. should only set you back $150

John Tillery: 30 secs is Totally Worth $200.00

DanielRichards644: Folks in the comments, Ideally you want a computer with 2 drives, one SSD for windows and all your apps and one HDD for your file storage, if you have a crappy laptop that only has one drive slot then Western Digital has what you need it's a 1TB hard drive and 120GB SSD in the single enclosure and runs about 200 bucks US.

blonde kirby: I like HDD for space But the SSD is really fast. People are saying "30 seconds big deal" but those 30 seconds will add up in the long run. 

The Joker: wanna have speed yet space for a cheap price? just get a 60 gb ssd, load all the necessary files on it. then get a 1 tb hdd for games, music and other stuff. I tried it and windows loaded over 2 times faster which i thought was not possible since my pc is already pretty damn fast.:) 

Kaoss Walker: "as you can see a 30 second difference in boot up time." Whoa!!! That's sooooo life changing :I "And as you can see, 5 seconds in, photoshop is loaded completely." I TAKE BACK WHAT I JUST SAID I NOW MUST HAVE ONE.

CodyMetal: SSD version $200 more expensive than HDD? Is this SSD made from unicorn horns or something?

Zack Mon: so i should put my windows on ssd...should my Photoshop flash, video editing be also on ssd??? 

Liberal Smiter: My HDD in sleep mode owns your SSD. When an SSD is 500gb at $60, they will stop sucking so hard. 

Poodge Nugget: Haha my HDD rig will boot up in under 17 seconds XD

N. Vonada: What a lot of people focus on is boot up speed, and snappy opening of programs, but its also important to consider such things as processing large video files, or moving large files across hard drives, etc. Most of the lower priced SSDs have very poor performance when copying large amounts of data after the cache is full. In other words, its designed for less than 9 second transfers, and if you go above that, the SSD moves at a snails pace, and is actually slower than a fast HDD. Nobody mentions this, because of marketing reasons. 

Algirdas Nausėdas: have a laptop and saved for 1TB samsung Evo 840, no reason to have ultra fast and small capacity, especially on the laptop where is able to put only one hard drive. It costs a lot, but I know I bought good item which is much faster, I can feel it straight after replace, and I am sure it shall serve me for a long time, really happy with it. also know if I will buy better laptop in the future I m always able to replace my SSD, so there is no question if it worth to have/

Freddy Deal: But If you have a laptop with both SSD and HDD, will It boot as fast as the SSD but have more storage because of the HDD? So its kinda best of both world???

HotShotVQ35: swapping out my hhd for an ssd made a huge difference. you can get a 256 for 100 bux now

quad8: ASUS Republic of Gamers > Alienware!

Tyrese Kaba: I'm building my PC and I don't have don't have much knowledge on building one but if I wanted today can u jus build one and justice a SSD and have no HDD or do I need HDD

Exdia's Channel | Gaming and Pony videos!: I still don't get the difference between the two :(

Izrada Sajtova Srbija: SSD Hard Disk je najbolje uložen novac za ubrzanje Vašeg kompjutera

peelopuu: Were ssds really that pricey back then? (1099 dollars for 160gig ssd)

tomfan206: The only thing I'm concerning is the life, read/write cycles, will SSD die fast compared to traditional HDD? Don't want a sudden death to lose all my stuffs...

Raymond Wong: I'm so getting a SSD 

irradiatedalien: guys if you want something faster than a HDD, cheaper than an SSD but has way more storage like a HDD for a good price check out SSHD's, apparently they combine the good sides of the 2 for a reasonable price. Instead of getting myself a hdd for extra storage im gonna get one of those so that i dont sacrifice the speed. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822178379

sanitarium09: I will never build a PC or purchase a laptop without an SSD at least for the OS and basic programs ever again. They're absolutely revolutionary in the way you use your PC.

sr kseries: Samsung 850 pro is out for sale, is fast.

kukovrein: Also a ssd is a better investment as today's HDD last only a year, almost all manufacturers have reduced from 5 to 1 year warranties, that's fishy and sucks, i've bought a HDD every freaking year, because it starts failing after a year. All SSD have atleast 5 to 10 year warranty.

Dorian D.: Everyone says to get two drives, SSD for programs and apps, and HDD for storage, but if you got two drives would it be the smartest to format both of them to NTFS?

Xena In Memoriam: Conclusion: No matter the brand of the product, MAC, ASUS or DELL, what makes a good machine is the equipment.

Axerist E: it is faster but is it worth it??? to me no because im just a casual gamer and couldnt care less about a 30 second difference 

Horacio Ramírez Márquez: SSD vs. HDD Performance Comparison: http://youtu.be/j84eEjP-RL4 +Pedro Eduardo Ramirez​ +Horacio Ramirez​

woodyfly: Every ssd is different, motherboard/ports also play a role. From the moment I hit the power button, windows loads up in less than 10 seconds, it's blazing fkn fast. Needless to say, games load fast as hell. It's kind of pointless to get it if you play a load-once type of game like cs go or something but it's extremely good for games that require long loads or constant loading like total war series. Waiting 2 goddamn minutes for a total war load was lame, now it takes less than 15 secs.

CoLouR SaLuTe: Seems like the SSD you use is not a very fast one.

boffifis1: Screw harddrives they suck

gaming is not a crime: i have 240 gb memory in my ssd

0urblindstat3: I've got one 256gb ssd for OS and three 1tb hdd in raid 0 for games. Works like a dream :)

PC Sanity Jeff Threlfall: I would like to see Asus do a new version of this comparison on one of the latest Windows 8.1 notebooks. But can you ask Rob to smile a little more :)

MultiHpark: If I had $200, I would replace my HDD right now with samsung 840 pro...T.T

Gristofer Tähelepp: 64GB RAM and a 2TB HDD. freak da SSD

CaptainD00M: ssd is good and that. but 1tb of ssd is too expensive

Juiicy Rich: wow.... 0.0

Ivailo Yanev: Just make sure you back that SSD up because if it goes kaput - your data is done for... and they have much, MUCH shorter usage time and finite number of writing cycles. Otherwise SSD speed >>> HDD speed :) Great video 

Heel Guy: HHD for more space. I don't mind waiting another 20 secs for larger memory space. 

GirlsLoveYourCurls: Is it true that SSD's are fast for reading, but slow at writing? I do a lot of video editing, which involves a lot of disk writing. Has anyone noticed a difference in speed when using Adobe Premiere?

Jom Gabriel: clearly SSD is more faster to load application and boot than HDD. But HDD has lot of memory than SDD. So I prefer to HDD anyway 

VLTFV: This is ** biased. What's the speed of the HDD? 5400 or 7200 rpm? Because there's a "pretty epic speed difference" between HDDs with different rpm as well. An HDD with 7200rpm, can reach 180Mb/s.

PokemonIsl: does this affect gaming

Oliver Maki: I dont recommend an ssd. Only a small boot time differance and program boot time differance. NOT WORTH IT

yoyoheads: Is it true that other than the faster boot time and load time, the SSD doesn't make much a difference in the actual performance of the softwares??

GenMinion: Nowadays, you can get a 120GB SSD for around $70 and a 500GB SSD for about $250.
