Is it really worth to have SSD?

In a previous posts, I talk about “Being fast, it’s not optional for us!!!” today I will just show the benefit of the SSD, so just see the following video for copying 7 GB between SSD.

Just imagine now the loading time of any application that read or write from and to SSD.

If you don’t have it GET IT NOW!!

Andrew Whitten wrote a good blog post about just testing and timing some simple operations in Windows 8 that anyone can do out of the box.

Here a part of the post:

Conclusion

There is a considerable speed advantage to using a Solid State Disk for running your Hyper-V virtual machines.

e-Sata still proved to be slightly faster than USB 3.

Surprisingly, USB 2 was not extremely slow compared to its USB 3 successor.

So we can see the benfit of the SSD on normal PCs and SSD with virtual machine and Hyper-V.

So I believe it really worth!
