Solid State hard Drives! For Christmas I got two Samsung 120 Gig solid state hard drives. One for my work computer & one for this one. They replace the hard drive with the spinning platter & WOW! What a difference! They are much, much faster. This computer is full of junk. It takes forever to open.... I'm talking between 9 and ten minutes. It has a weather program that opens with it & that slows things up too. So, today my computer buddy & I got around to installing them. This computer now opens in less than 2 minutes. My shop computer used to take 5 to 6 minutes to open it now opens in 59 seconds. Heeeheee! Just thought I'd mention it in case someone is dreaming of more speed & less money LOL. On top of opening faster, when you ask it do process anything, it is Johnny on the spot. In my CNC program when you ask it to "calculate" a large file instead of taking 30 seconds it does it so fast it's hard to believe.

THose are nice! I bought an external 1Tb (terabyte) drive for backups of all the other computers, the prices are getting very cheap now. It's pretty fast too for USB 3.0/2.0.

Couple these with lots of RAM and render Hero 3 movies.... BIG improvement.

On my new windows machine with SATA3 SSD on SATA3 port its about 14 seconds, there is a little utility screen that pops up for the RAID so I think that might add 1 or 2 seconds. Just to give you an idea when the the four windows begin to swirl and expand they barely start to move and BAM!... login screen. :lol: Sleep mode is not much different than if the monitor is just asleep.

I don't know why that would make a difference unless there is lot of data that has to be read from the drive to be calculated which if you have complex 3-D object is certainly possible.

Exactly what we're doing.... rendering machine paths for 3D R2D2 parts.....then being able to rotate the 3D part in space to inspect it before writing the G-code.

Now if you get a Russian SSD... ;)
We dont't RAID the SSD...
The controller for the raid is more probable to fail...
Just make sure you have a good imaging schedule...
When the SSD fail...
You have little chance of recovery on your own...

So in 25 words or less :P , what was the step-by-step process to "replace" the old hard drive with the SSD? Could you clone the operating system and everything else on the old drive, or was the SSD empty to begin with, requiring installing Windows and everything else from scratch?

If there was less than 100GB of data...
Clone could be done...
I like clean install with a new SSD...

They are fast but do fail. I work at a university repair shop and many think they do not break. Treat the data stored on them like no other, don't backup what you are willing to lose.
