    Default SSD Discussion

    It seems we have come a long way in a few short years with the development of ssd's and so now with the latest generation starting to be released by a few of the manufacturers and with these having warranties of up to 10 years, it occurred to me that some of you guys might like to tell us what it is you seek from an ssd.

    I find myself looking at a few areas that have seen development in leaps and bounds since I bought my first drive (a 120GB Intel 520)

    Let us consider what you use your ssd for..... It is the OS drive first and foremost I guess, then it probably has a number of programs/games on it too, and because you never have a big enough drive this means that chances are it is 3/4 full of "stuff". As a result of this I am always looking for reviews that test drives that are at least half full when they are benchmarked and just now THE benchmark that I give most credence to for being a pretty good summary of performance across the board both under load and in a "recovered" state is the PC Mark 8 extended consistency test.

    So, what are ssd's all about? .....SPEED !! The transfer rate of both reading and writing for all different sizes of file with both large and small queues of files waiting to be transferred.

    I am interested in the transfer speed when the rig is essentially idle and there is very little being read from or written to the disk and I am interested in the speed when the disk is under a large load from gaming or maybe rendering etc. and remember I need these figures to be on a used disk that is "full" of data.

    The other thing I have been paying attention to is the warranty period and within the warranty terms how much data can be written to the disk. The difference between Makers/drives can be huge. I know of drives that currently range from 22 to 520 TBW total Terabytes written within the warranty period. Whilst this is not a figure written in stone meaning that as soon as your drive reaches that figure it will die it must surely be a good guide to knowing if your drive is up to the task you have set for it.

    I titled this a discussion so I would love to hear your thoughts on anything to do with SSD's. Meanwhile I shall prepare a chart of what are in my view some of the better SSD's out there just now and the speeds of transfer they are capable of according to the reviews I have read. I am however crap at making good charts with good labels so pretty basic is what you will get

    I can tell I'm really satisfied with my Crucial M500 960GB SSD. I have installed on it the OS, bunch of mining and civil programs, some games (Crysis 3, MLL, Dead Space 3), MS Office... The OS loading time (cold start), went from 1' 50" to 15 sec tops, loading time of programs (Civil 3D, MineSite, Terramodel, Trimble Business Center...), went form more then 30sec to only few sec, MS office loading time instantaneously, and because is 1TB drive still have plenty of space on it, and the price at the moment of buying it was les de 50 cents per GB.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    About a year ago lots of reviews said that the Samsung 840 pro was the go to drive for performance so I include it here for reference

    The latest release is the Samsung 850 pro which can be run in standard mode or in rapid mode which uses up to 4GB of system ram as a cache. You may notice that this is very speedy under lighter loads but it in fact harms performance some under heavy load.

    The oddball in this list is the Seagate 600 Pro. Designed to be very consistent at all loads, it has a TBW figure of 520TB.

    the horizontal axis is MB/sec

    Well for one compared to your standard hard drive transfer speeds are a blink unfortunately of the 4 SSDs that I own only of them is more than half full and it has to be over 5 yrs old
    and still running strong its a Corsair 128GB CMFSSD-128GBG2D and very slow in comparison to my other SSD's which were recently purchased.

    Corsair SSD 128GB
    OCZ 256GB Vertex 4

    The only thing I look for in an SSD and would like to see right now would be a lower price for the larger sizes

    Got to agree with that Vinny.

    My 840 pro is just under a year old and has 117GB free from 240 and 22.8 TB written. It will soon go into my boy's rig for a bit of a rest on the writes.

    Most of the work this has done is now being done by a seagate 600 pro which is about 2 months old with about 7.5 TB of writes on it. Purchased especially for this kind of workload, it is not the fastest but it is no slouch, it being faster than the samsung.

    My daily rig will be getting a Sandisk extreme pro pretty soon. I am wondering if I will notice the difference.

    Default Re: SSD Discussion

    I have the OCZ Vertex 3s in my system. 240gb each in a raid 0 so I could run my whole system off of them. I wanted the best speed I could get at a reasonable cost. I got each drive for $130 each after rebate back in 2012. Speed is definitely what I got!
    Second System: CPU - AMD FX-8350 / Mobo - AsRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 / Video Card - XFX Radeon HD6870 / Memory - 8gb Gskill Sniper DDR3 1600 9-9-9-24 / Harddrive - Seagate Barracuda 250gb 7200 rpm x 3 Raid 0 / Power Supply - Seasonic X Gold 750w / Case - Sunbeam Transformer / CPU Cooler - Zalman CNPS9900 Max

    I've been reading a bit about the new OCZ ARC 100 ssd's..... Not much slower in use than the Vertex 460..... 3 yrs @ 20GB a day fast turnaround warranty..... 50 cents per GB.

    Surely this drive will get a lot of interest from those who didn't take the plunge yet with ssd's

    Nice setup. Not sure who it was this morning but Newegg, Tigerdirect or Microcenter had a 512GB ssd on sale for $219. prices are dropping fast. The price between a 120 vs a 240gb in some cases are only $5 apart.
