    Thumbs up [RESOLVED] Solid State Hard Drives.

    Hi everyone,

    I m looking to move into SSD territory as my new system drive. I've got heaps of storage on my NAS I don't need TBs on my system drive, I just want it to be fast and eliminate another audio source from my bedroom.

    Last time I looked (few years ago) everyone was saying not to get into SSD because the drives have a limited number of writes? I m not too sure how it is these days though.

    So, anyone out there using SSD? Or am I completely behind the times? What are some better brands? What kind of life can I expect from it?

    Thanks!
    I dont know... I just dont.

    All solid state drives have a certain amount of writes, but it would take years before they are used up.

    Hard to guarantee lifespan, but you can expect them to last as long if not longer than traditional HDs.

    Corsair, OCZ, Crucial, Intel. You really need to look at the chipset for each model. Anandtech has a lot of reviews.
