Sorry it is SSD , typo mistake...

Solid State Drive


Main advantages of SSD over HDD:
- Much faster read/write speeds
- Less susceptible to damage as there are no mechanical parts (shaking the laptop doesn't affect it)
- Not affected by defragmentation
- No mechanical parts = quiet, no noise
- Lighter
- Consumes less power (more than half of what an HDD consumes)

Main disadvantages:
- Some SSDs have a limited number of write operations, but it's usually higher than you'll need during the disk's lifespan
- The performance improvement is not as good when it comes to small files
- Price, for SSD, the price is around 1.5$ per GB, while it's just 0.05$ per GB for a HDD

eh 5alas, that's not a disadvantage for me, it's a brick wall.

I fill my disks with nonesense, like I have 100 GB cartoons(pokemon series+the smurfs) that I am never gonna watch and may never have to gift to anyone (ash beats gary in season 5 of pokemon by the way, that gave me the closure I wanted to move on with my life )

I'm not paying 1$ per GB for that. on the other hand, it seems wrong to just delete hundreds of GB, even if I am never gonna watch them

edit: an SSD would be great for applications and for the operating system, like I'd get an 80GB one for example, but not for massive storages...

english audio, and I am getting the other seasons(6 to 12) from my friend this week(or at least that is what he promised) and I'm giving them to my second cousin on christmas.

some episodes were in japanese audio, and I deleted them(maybe 4 episodes in total in the 5 seasons which are around 400 episodes) my cousin is 7 he won't notice

12 years and ash is still 10 years old

we really should learn to stay on topics

it's also what I have! actualy bel esem I have 2.5 terra but my 2 terra disk is in reality 1.8 and my 500 GB disk is in reality 420 (damn marketing ) but still, and they are all 60% full

I'd roll with 4 terra byte disks if I had the benjamins, how many small externals do you want to have? my desktop cannot fit more than 2 disks because my power supply can only plug into 2 disks, and I paid 90$ for that power supply so I cannot throw that away easily...

i have been searchin for the japanese version for so long with no luck

i dont support your 4 Terra lemme elaborate my configuration

256GB SSD for OS and frequently used apps like word and engineering apps in my case it will make your day bright.

600GB Raptor for games and music, VelociRaptor is a 10000RPM drive which is amazinnngggg!!!

2TB Seagate barracuda no need to explain here

now instead of the 2 mentioned mechanical drive you can run 2 2TB barracudas with RAID 0 if i am not mistaken.

if u have banjamins roll with a full tower case , i can fit like 5 HDDs in he current case i have which is the thermaltake VJ900 somthin.

aw men eikher iza mech se2lein 3an el $$ install 4x 512GB SSDs
