  WOW STUPID FAST!,  2013-03-21
By Tom

I kept hearing all this hype about how much faster the SDD technology is but couldn't justify the huge price differences between spinning drives and SDD. The prices have come down a lot lately. I have a MAC PRO computer that already has 1 (2) TB 7200 RPM drive and 2 (1) TB 7200 RPM drives. They typically boot from the time I press the button until the desktop is ready to use in about 3-4 minutes, which up to now seemed quite normal. I mostly bought this Samsung 840 because I run LogicPro which is a big processor and hard drive taxing program, I wanted to see the difference and WOW it is extreme!

My computer boots in 30 seconds to the desktop, LogicPro loads in about 10 seconds, it is STUPID FAST, all the plugins just quickly load so fast I can't even read whats loading now. AMAZING. I am rarely impressed by a product but am SO impressed with this SDD drive I just had to leave this review. Yes they are still a bit pricey but remember that just a couple of years ago a 500GB Hard Drive was over $300.

Well worth the investment! All my programs just instantly open when I click on them. The internet is WAY faster, just a really great product, I might even replace these old spinning drives with new SDD's too!
