A long time coming.
« on: October 19, 2011, 03:48:42 PM »
I finally joined the 21st Century. My PC is now running a 64GB SSD as the boot drive. I've also got 4 x 2TB HDDs running in it.

God damn, that's about the quickest Win 7 install that I've ever done!

I also put a 64Gig SSD in mine, a couple of months ago.

Makes HDD's seem like stone age technology, at least speed-wise :-*
Whatever

Yeah, I've looked at SSDs myself.

I'm waiting for the prices to drop a bit more and I need to save up the money.

Not so much the money for a SSD per se, but I would like to do a complete build.

I've been saying that for years, but I don't ever seem to have free time and spare money at the same time.

Where everything out here ain't what it seems
When I'm down to nothing, I just go ahead and dream
And face the fact that I'm a circle in a world full of squares

I wouldn't know what to do with ONE 2TB HDD, let alone 4.

What are you trying to do, download the entire Internet?  ;zn

I'm about .000000009% there. With 8TB of storage, I've already got it half filled. I take a lot of photos.

I really don't have the option at home of an SSD, being we are now all portables, but the SAN going into the new DC (when we ever get there - money men...) is a mix of high availability SSDs and e-SATA - should be fun :)

I lose track of how much data Middy has - me I struggle to fill a few Gig :)
