I'm thinking of moving up to a solid state hard drive and wanted to hear any thoughts, good or bad, from anyone who has made the leap.  I do photography with PhotoShop, but otherwise it would be the usual surfing, YouTube, porn, some music streaming as well as NetFlix, etc.  I don't do any gaming though.

Any thoughts would be most appreciated.

Hi CT. Should'nt be a problem for 'normal' usage. just take advice from a decent retailer. warning! there are some nasty counterfiet drives out there. And find/get a decent file manager, trusting you have good memory available as well. drum

I've heard good things about SSD's If possible (if you have a tower PC) get a SSD and install your operating system on it, and keep a seperate standard hard drive connected to the computer and keep your data on it. That way, you can save money because you''ll only need a small SSD as your data will be stored in another place. I'm planning on doing this when i get a bit of spare cash.

Yeah I think that's the best way to do it. I've got some friends more into computers than me that run their system like yours. Someday I shall have the money to do it!

I put one in my system and the one thing I can say is speed!

the system boots faster, runs better. Worth it!

Just remember not to use defrag. I have one and it's much faster. Defraging can ruin the solid state drive.

yes defrag is not designed for SSD.

I only have my operating system on the drive so I have no need to defrag it.

It's nice having a computer that is basically scilent of HD noice, and is very "snappy"

I'm used to my laptop (Macbook Air 13) which has SSD. I used a friends computer which has the old style HD and it sucked! Noisy, slow sometimes, inconsistent. (It was a new-ish decent spec machine.)

Solid state is nice and you'll quickly be spoiled for anything less.
