I know, everyone wants their PC or laptop to be faster. Today everything is instant and we want our computers to be the same. By now if you think like that you have likely already upped the memory in your computer to 4 Gigabytes and still it is not snappy enough for you.
I felt the same and found the answer in a Solid State Drive (SSD). Still a bit pricey, but they have dropped considerably since last year. I opted for a 128GB Crucial RealSSD C300 2.5-inch SATA 6GB/s which is just about the fastest SSD you can buy with read speeds up to 355MB/s. If you are using it in a Notebook there is the added advantage quiet operation because there are no moving parts and longer battery life.
I have had my Crucial SSD since last April (when it was double today’s price) and it has performed well. In real world experience the boot speed of my Windows 7 Desktop went from 30 seconds to 14. Big applications such as Word and Acrobat load in a blink and overall the computer feels very snappy.Take a look at what the Windows 7 Performance tool sees.
The 128GB Crucial RealSSD C300 2.5-inch SATA 6GB/s is listed at a cash discount price of $265 at Microbytes. The price is still a bit steep perhaps, but I feel the performance kick is worth the price.
