how does an ssd feel like? I never owned a PC or a laptop with an ssd in it, if always used Spinny hard drives my whole life
how does an ssd feel like?

actually coming to think of it, I never owned anything with an ssd or a USB-C port
feels fast and reliable
I know that its faster, but how ""reliable"" do you consider it to be?
I've had the same 500gb SSD for instant replay recording for about 5 years now and it's still going strong.
The oldest that I have.
it will not break unless your swappiness is maxed and you live in a web browser 24/7 for 12 years and 600 terabytes of write
100% reliable 0 read errors recorded in about 12 months of use.
They really are, I have two Kingstons I bought in like 2017 that are still going strong.
I've been using the same HDD since 2011. Near constant uptime. I doubt a SSD could last that long.
Ever think about how much time you waste waiting for shit to load? You probably lost years of your life.
Feels good. And quiet.
Feels speedy. Also quite silent.
If you're running Windows it feels like hardrives used to.
I'm running Linux, and whenever I open anything after boot it takes like 25 seconds before it opens
and sometimes I have to close the software and re open it again so it doesn't become laggy
are you a zoomer?
im kind of a young millennial, I know how to use modern tech, but I also experienced old stuff like retro consoles and VHS tapes and such, I still have my old GBA and my PS1
how old are you? dont bullshit me with fucking young millennial.
It's snappy. I still worry about inane non-issues like write endurance and impermanent deletions on unencrypted volumes.
SSDs are very noticeably faster and I'm amazing anyone would put up with spinning disks in 2023. Ignore the memes.
ESL the post
salty milk and coins
Feels like the ultimate PC experience. It's especially nice when you get one when you're used to waiting around for your HDD then suddenly everything is snappy and loads fast. Kinda sucks that you get used to it and wish that things were even faster. SSDs are great though. They can breathe new life into even an old shitty PC
Also I wish I had bought into the SSD meme sooner. It changed the feel of using my PC so much I honestly regretted the time I spent on a HDD and I've always had good drives that aren't even that bad. The SSD is just a whole nother level
idk ssds aren't that mainstream here where I live, I wish I could afford something like the steamdeck or some shit, but its just impossible here, unless if I find some retailer who happened to be selling PCs and laptops locally with an SSD
>I never owned a PC or a laptop with an ssd in
Are you from the past?
Do you know what pussy feels like?
an SSD costs as low as $15.
fifteen fucking dollars, I've spent more than that on a pizza, just how poor are you exactly?
poor an in still using an old chink android from 2018 today
I'm not very poor and I still use a OnePlus 3 from 2016.
that's a zoomer, bud
why do you care so much
NTA but you're retarded for thinking you're a millennial. I'm 23 and a zoomer still
idfk anything about labeling people by age, idk the whole millennial/zoomer/gen x y z things sounds as retarded as astrology signs
Because it is.
At least you can easily spot binary thinking npcs.
I am still using the same SSD in my PC from 2011 daily. It's only 250GB but that's enough to boot the OS and programs. I still have a 1TB HDD for all the extra storage like music, etc.
Can you please post your SSD stat from CrystalDiscInfo? Mine above.
They feel very smooth and are rectangular, but very thin. At first they don't feel very good in your ass because of how wide they are, but you get use to it and they start to feel pretty good.
My HDD died after 12 years recently and i replaced it with a cheap SSD, my first SSD. The difference is night and day.
Bags of sand
>how does an ssd feel like?
It's like when you go into a supermarket, find the packaged whole chickens (not frozen), and slap them a few times. Feels just like that.
Like ram and bags of sand
>what does [thing] feel like?
>how does [thing] feel?
I bought a cheap data 240gb to replace my hdd a couple years ago. Everything is noticably faster despite having a less than optimal machine.
>always used Spinny hard drives my whole life
Have you ever used 15000rpm SAS HDDs in RAID0? The experience is pretty close to a SSD, but a good SSD is still a little faster.
With a DRAMless generic chink SATA SSD sequential reads and writes will be slower, but non-sequential reads will be just as fast in worst case scenario.
SSDs are annoying, you can't hear when things are loading, so if something is crashing you have no knowledge of it.
They also have very poor quality control, good luck finding any current SSD that will last longer than 3 years without shitting the bed.
I will always buy hard drives, the forced SSD adoption is just israelites trying to get us used to the "you will own nothing" cloud paradigm.
You could get from a fully shut down computer to opening this very thread like 10-15 seconds after hitting the power button, that's what it feels like.
I can do the same on HDD
It lasts longer, the loading times of Windows are slightly faster, but SSD alone can only do so much, you need a decent mid range laptop to feel the real difference.
>loading times are faster
if you want to see fast loading times, install gentoo
You can eliminate HDD bottleneck pretty much entirely, by starting as little programs as possible and using a small kernel
