Well, at least the Mac was put to good use. A throne of cash thrown down the Apple hole. :nom:

Gdi, SSDs are such a Celestia-send.

Well, boot times aren't much different from my old system tbh. But damn, everything just feels snappier. Everything opens in a second flat instead of ten seconds flat. RD has got nothing on SSDs. :maud:

What is your boot time?

I came off a WD Black booting in just under 50 seconds to a Samsung EVO booting in about 10-15 seconds. I would be surprised if your boot times didn't change much.

My boot time was about 15 seconds, including the POST screen.

Right now, it goes between 5-10 seconds. Sometimes it shows the Windows loading screen, sometimes it just goes straight from the POST screen to the login screen. Sometimes, the mouse and keyboard wouldn't get detected for five seconds in the login screen. Not sure why, but, ye. :nom:

Windows 10 has some fast boot option in the power management settings. Guess that's why it boots quite fast even on an HDD. But startup programs would take a minute or two before they would fully open. Right, now, in mere seconds. :nom:

And, o ye, my SSD is a WD Green 240GB. Certainly not the best writes (only 150MB/s, as fast as my Seagate HDD :wacko: ), but the reads are still snappy af. Also, ye, the cheapest SSD I could find. :nom:

Until I realized the 850 Evo was on sale for not much more :(

But, hey, I doubt I would see the difference I suppose. :nom:

Why a WD Green?
no! Green is for long-life low-performance, energy save and shit ; hence it's "green" ...

WD Blue for normal use and WD black for fast ; WD red etc are for nas etc so lets ignore those colors

It's an SSD tho. :wacko:

According to Userbenchmark, the reads aren't far off from the more premium ones. Yea, writes are one thing, but I don't copy stuff into my SSD.

Also, ye, it's the cheapest 240GB SSD I could find. :T
