Today I found an article at Tom’s hardware that made me think about the question in the title
If what is reported there is true, for a mean user is basically useless to get a gigabit equipment, because even the fastest HDD cannot use fully the bandwidth
Only with a SSD drive maybe is possible to move data through a network connection fast enough to use a gigabit speed.
So what are your opinions? Is it really better to have a (more costly) gigabit connection compared to a 10/100 equipment if the full gigabit speed will be never reached?
There will be anyway an advantage getting a gigabit equipment over a 10/100 one even if the full bandwidth will be never used?
