[QUOTE=AllanDeGroot;2681647]Well, personally I’d be a lot more enthusiastic if I were going to get someone’s previously evaluated hardware bit.
I have this mental image of the various reviewers having shelves weight down with previously evaluated hardware gathering dust, or perhaps a drawer full of SSD’s
Generally speaking hardware that I (or others) would seriously consider
maiming or killing someone else to have…
In these hard economic times I cannot justify replacing my
six month old 120gb SSD with the 256GB SSD I really wanted
in the first place.
To be truthful part of the reason bought the SSD was to free up the fast 500gb drive I had been using as a system drive for use as a pure storage device, perversely I actually paid more for the 500gb WD “Black” HDD than I did for the 120gb SSD!
Don’t get me wrong, I get to Buy and to “play”, with a bunch of SSD’s,
but unfortunately I’m using other people’s money and they generally
want to get their computer back with their new hardware installed,
so (sadly) I don’t get to “play” very long…
But I generally do get to decide what hardware is actually purchased.
“Buy what you think is best within a budget of $x” is something I hear rather often.[/QUOTE]
I can understand all of that Allan and everyone has different priorities but we have a very high proportion of SSD enthusiasts in here.
I must admit I haven’t the money to buy all the equipment I’d like either but I still like reading up on things and keeping up and keeping up to date with the latest technologies, and I’m sure a lot of our members are the same.
