Exclamation SSD Poll - 10-31-2009, 10:07 PM

With the current interest in SSD’s I thought it might be interesting to run a poll to see just how these are being used, so here goes. I know that similar ones have been run before, but I have tried to make this a little more general. The answers can either be your current position, or your immediate intention.


Mini 10v - Product (RED) - BIOS A06 - Ubuntu 11.04 - 2GB RAM - 60 GB OCZ Vertex SSD - Bluetooth - Intel 6205 Wi-Fi - WWAN

Was this meant to be a forum poll where people could vote?

Yes it was... sorry, something went wrong the first time!

I have now removed the options from the first post, so hopefully it now makes a bit more sense!!

Edit: I have just cast my own vote(s) so it seems to work OK... it's my first attempt at a poll!

How about an option for those who have a HD and wouldnt want an SSD, I have a 500gb (I would have bought a TB but they are 12.5mm and the cage only holds a 9mm) in my Mini 10 and wouldnt change for anything, the 512gb SSD's are like 600-700 US dollars and I wouldnt pay that. I only paid $500 for my Mini, and my battery life is well over 6 hours dont know what I would gain from an SSD, my drive is quite as hell, and I have a targus netbook chill pad and get no heat fromn the HD at all...good luck with your poll though


Dell Mini 10 (Obsidian Black 1010), 2gb RAM, 1.66ghz 533mhz FSB (Z530) processor, A10 BIOS, 1 Terabyte (1000 GB) WD Scorpio Blue Hard Drive (5400rpm), Intel GMA 500 Integrated Graphics, TV Tuner, Bluetooth 2.1 module with EDR, 1.3mp Camera, 1366x768 HD Screen, Wireless 1510 b/g/n mini card, 6 cell (56WHr) Battery, 4gb SDHC, 64gb Flashdrive, Targus Netbook Chillpad, Targus Sport Case, Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (500gb)/Windows 8.1 (500gb) (Dual Boot)

My A90 has a 64GB RunCore.

My home gaming PC has an 80GB Intel SSD 2nd Generation.

You can have my Intel SSD when you pry it from my cold dead hands. The thing is bloody wonderful.

I expect to be moving to mostly SSD storage by March of 2010, and possibly setting up a NAS with all SSD's in it.

This assumes I get back into a job within the next month or so before I fall behind on bills.

And how about an option for Super Talent SSD's, and upgraded existing.
910 and 1010 with Super Talent SSD's.
Lol, give up on the poll and just ask people to post up their drives type, capacity, brand and OEM or upgraded.

I have the original STEC PATA 8GB on my Mini.
May be I will replace it in the future. It is not my need today.

I have the 16 gb stec that came stock with my 9....I haven't filled it, but do covet a larger (perhaps 64gb) faster runcore , but want to pay $120 rather than $220. I would like to try to put Windows 7 on it when I someday get that drive.

Perhaps a 32gb Runcore with a 16 or 32gb SDHC card once both drop in price. I will never buy a standard HD again, never, never, never....I would rather buy my computer without a HD if a SSD isn't offered.

I'm curious about SSDs. What's the current sweet spot for capacity vs performance vs cost? I think I could get away with a 32GB drive but would probably prefer a 64GB.
