Just got my tax return and I was able to purchase my SSD Upgrade today! I should have it by monday and be able to reinstall everything just in time for early access!
Anyone else doing anything PC related with their income tax money?
I've never really understood the point of a SSD at this point just because of the price. Are they really that awesome? Paying for an amp and solid headphones seems like a better use of money.
I dont even turn off my computer so boot times are out the window, and i dont mind waiting an extra 5 seconds for my game to load... so I personally would've put it towards a bigger moniter.
But thats just me
Using an SSD makes your computer blazing fast, you boot instantly, you reboot instantly, you load any file, loading screen or such instantly. It's very noticeable, there's also less promoted features such as running completely silent, usually the only part of your machine that makes noise is your HDD and your fans, with the HDD being the most annoying because the sound is not consistent like a fan, well with an SSD there's no sound at all, it's also draining less battery so if it's for a laptop, that's sweet and also runs cooler than HDD.
That's pretty much it for me atleast. Once I tried SSD I could never ever switch back to an HDD. Just YouTube some HDD vs SSD and you'll get to see the speed differences, but you really have to try one yourself to get it.
Maybe once the price goes down I'll consider it.
The price per space ratio is terrible for SSDs. I just put a new build together, and I was considering one. I decided to cut the cost and just pick one up later, when it's a better value.
