You are wasting your life if you aren't a nudist! ...
I've decided to strip the case off my six month old OCZ SSD so it'll be faster!
My other SSD is in a laptop. If I strip the case off that one will it still be faster?
Has anyone seen any forum posts on stripping outer cases off SSDs and making them nude for speed yet?
I use one computer for all my TV, all my live streamcasts in language, scanning, as a NAS, to transcribe audio files, and to occasionally edit a video, so startup was getting excruciating. I bought my first SSD for that PC, 60GB, and I'm very happy I did. I didn't shift my Windows system files, but I moved all the music and data onto another drive. I moved a bunch of programs onto the other drive too, and install them there whenever I can, although sometimes I end up putting them back on the "C:" due to install problems.
My laptop on my nightstand with a chair on the other side also running all day is an old Thinkpad T23 in a real bad spot in this fourth floor apartment of mine of twenty months. The window toward the main road is high up on the wall and I need to look out a lot to watch the excitement (hawks on the church roof across the street, ambulances for the elderly in the building here, buses stopping, traffic accidents, carnivals when they close the road, etc). I have an old very sturdy speaker stand tucked in I can stand on, between the bed and the laptop. I kept bumping the laptop, and this round of drive replacement was coming way too early. I think I was about to buy a fifth drive for it when I realized how happy I was with the first SSD. I found an IDE interface SSD for it about three months ago. This all broke the bank, but I expect I'll get long life out of them.
BTW, I've got another screen from my PC to my bedroom for TV, video, etc, so I can walk around and not lose my concentration, hooked to the laptop by Input Director. Actually, this is the home of the 'triple double.' I've got the PC in a central location, with one pair of wires to the bedroom for double screen there, and two in the other direction for the entry room.
Now I'm going to go back to the top of this forum and read the article that started this. I'm not scared....very.
