albertlouisher: Ya, it's used because it is much fast, but the point is, it is expensive as freak for like no memory.
Czesuafeq: Wow, don't you get the point of using SSD's? Noone uses this for big-ammount space bro
albertlouisher: I can just spend $80 on a 2tb, ssd, is like $300-$500 for like a 500 gb
Czesuafeq: so what? who the freak needs over even 100 gb when there are external hdds
jkkhan22: Which ASUS Notebook is that ?
peter maree: Hi. All the way from South Africa. Thanks. Really smooth improvement. If it comes to upgrade, vs laptop replace. SSD is the way to go. Just more value to current PC than the upgrade laptop, with HDD option, that will cost more in any case. any chance of looking at SSD across i7 vs i5 vs i3 as the variables?
albertlouisher: ssd is not worth it, it's like $1 per GB
Andrew X.: SSD is for operating system, HDD is for porn.
Jay R.: Uhh guys .the prices are for the laptops which includes the drives .-_-
Vyas Anand: Idiot boy
gogo cat: hey i jus bought a ssd , does that make my pickle bigger?
fjccommish: We'll leave it up to you? If the extra $200 is worth it for the SSD?
Javafuul: looking at the description:
$899 for a 640gb HDD
holy crap prices have dropped...
Keiji99: Yes, it will quickly boot up windows. Just make sure to keep the SSD about 20-25% empty or you will see a drop in performance.
Xantheus07: they will be obsolete just as soon a a 4tb SSD cost as much as a 4tb HDD.
Jenzel Arevalo: Question: I built a gaming PC with Windows 7 and it was running smoothly for a month. But now, I noticed that my PC takes about 5-10 minutes to boot but after the boot the computer was fast as usual. My hard drive is a 1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue and its about 1/4 full. If I get an SSD, will this dramatically cut the boot time? This isn't a serious issue, but it sort of bothers me. Can someone help? Much appreciated!
Mike Hunt: well they dont rotate
that i am sure of
craig ward: actually solid state technology has been used in florescent lighting ballast technology for quite a while now and they are refered to as solid state devices. this predates the pc industry's renaming of the technology.
Richard Grunwald: well i use HDDs for storage. i have my games and programs on SSD for faster load time.
Felipe Varela: This can only mean that HDDs will be obsolete sooner than later.
Ilham Israfilov: retarded hdd. hey ssd makers, down the costs, what's up, i wanna buy a lot of GBs
Benjamin Cresdee: its including the whole Laptop
not many 640gb hard drives where $900
Kenstro949: 160gb ssd then = $1099
128gb ssd now = ~$100
2 years man, SHEEEEEEEEEEEEET
Metalkorka: omg, i need an ssd
Dragor54321: No he's right, A SSD doesn't rotate its made to be flash, That's what makes it fast and quiet.
Jimmy Puller: Sorry but i'll take more storage over a slightly faster boot speed. I'd rather stare at the windows logo an extra 10 seconds and save a few hundred bucks
Dindeed: so basically there is nothing that needs to be installed into an hdd. that is what makes me sad :C
Richard Grunwald: well it would load the games slower a) because they're on a different drive and b) because HDDs are just slower than SSDs. best to install OS and games on an SSD. otherwise what's the point of having one?
dreamomega: Jesus freaking freak dude. in 2011 160GB SSd's were 1110$? Holy freak!
Richard Grunwald: once u go SSD u can't go back
GamesMetQuinten: Umm... let me make this understandable for you too. "Is a solid state drive dumfreak"
Daniel Frei: pointless. show an optimised hdd boot vs optimised ssd. linux custom kernel + openbox. show the boot messages with timers. maybe 5 sec difference. but that wouldn't make very convincing marketing, would it, ASUS?
SpeakWhatsRealdotcom: Dude.. the file on that photoshop was 280mb... My god do you even watch the video man lol
PCGamer3242: wow people actually believe this? Yes SSD load applications, games and operating systems faster but couldn't you try it on better computers? those laptops are so slow it took like 10 seconds to load Photoshop on that SSD and yet my 320GB hard drive loads a 1.5GB file in 15 seconds and my SSD loads Battlefield 3 (4.25GB) Instantly next time you test out stuff use better equipment please because this is not a fair test.
Dindeed: I might sound stupid because I am new to ssds, If I install OS onto an SSD and then games on a HDD, will the games load up faster than if OS was installed onto an HDD?
Kuba Hmm: Am I the only person that thinks comparing an SSD with an HDD which has a mere 5400 rpms is a bad comparison to say the least? If you intend to do it properly I`d advise using a 7200rpm HDD which is pretty much mandatory if you`re aiming for performance
Unless of course this is just some biased video review meant to increase SSD sales - I`m not saying that SSDs are bad (hell, I`m using one myself), just that the video comparison is done poorly
jacob26referibles: solid state drive, my foolish friend.
Joakim Szenonsson: Im getting the SSD for sure :) !
Joakim Szenonsson: Im getting the SSD for sure :) !
DFKNBOSS: Is a solid sate device dumfreaks
Cole Bradford: Your spelling is a problem
Turnea Alexandru: :\ that photoshop on SSD is open in one sec ? kidding me ?
Lolerburger: Just because you know some guy who used a lot of memory doesn't mean 4TB isn't a buttload of space. If you're a gamer and you're filling out two 4tb harddrives with anything at all, including porn, you're doing something very wrong.
Videographers/big youtube channels are another story of course and aren't your average use case. Most people don't need to record in 1920x1080 (1080p) uncompressed frames.
Amil Agarwal: _|_
sargeaap: so the noted transfer speeds on both media's makes little or no difference? SSD will be better?
Corbin Anderson: Wat. Having a 6GB/s connector doesn't make everything 6gb/s. An SSD will be faster than any mechanical drive.
sargeaap: What speed are both HDD running at? 3,6Gbs ? what I want to know is it still effective to have HDD 6Gb than a SSD at the same speed? because you can have much higher capacities.
