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
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
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.
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
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
