I drug my feet on this one a bit, but finally last week I upgraded my work, personal and son’s rigs to use SSD’s (for the OS and certain apps for now). I knew there was a performance jump, but surprised by how much. Why the wait, mainly because I knew it would require a lot of moving of files, re-installs (I could clone, but a fresh install never hurts and most of the main apps/media are on HDDs separate from the OS). Next up, putting one in my 2011 Mac Mini, and see what new life I get from it. Because sadly it’s an over glorified Netflix viewer right now. Oh, and I went with the Crucial M500 line, and quite pleased with them. I will try the Samsung 840 series next for comparison.
Late to the SSD party
