SSD (Solid state drives)
« on: September 23, 2019, 01:13:35 PM »
Just upgraded my music drive to an SSD and so far the performance is amazing.

RadioDJ is running like butter off a hot knife. My PC will hopefully all be SSD drives soon. Ditching the 2TB hard drive for a 1TB SSD so I can run my VM off it.

The 2TB drive has been dragging a lot lately which is strange as its less than 2 years old.

Yes we've looked at any pitfalls but as I hardly ever put VMware into a saved state it makes no difference.

Oh how I wish SSD drives had been a thing 20 years ago. I just LOVE technology when it makes life simpler.

The prices of SSD has come down in price its something like £100 for a 1TB drive from what I've seen

Don’t worry, it will be even cheaper after Boris crashes the economy  :P

Yep, I know the experience about a year of 4, 5 ago. You got a SATA or PCIe one? The latter even fly more...

SATA at the moment I've got 2 x240GB in the box at present.

I've been on SSD for my operating system (Ubuntu Studio) for quite sometime and that flies we had a spare drive after buying a new system for my partner so I said Id have it for my music files.

I take it the PCI ones are what slot into the PCI slots? Maybe something to consider in a few years when I upgrade this computer.
This is the most powerful computer i've ever owned (16GB) with SSD added its amazingly quick and stable.

M.2 is the term for the gum sticks that plug directly into the motherboard

SATA SSDs have a maximum speed of 600 MB per second, while M.2 PCIe cards can hit 4 GB per second.

Correct but caveat is that M2 is only the form factor. You also have M2 SSDs that use SATA and thus have the lower speed.
