    The JMicron stuttering issue was long ago - but like IBM's "deathstar" HDDs, will haunt them forever

    Personally I keep a clean OS and don't notice it being slow in general use, so buying a £100+ drive to shave 20-30s off my boot time seems a bit of a waste, I only restart every few weeks for updates, rest of the time I use sleep mode. I spent my money elsewhere for more noticeable improvements!

    Lol, have you actually used one? Until you do, I think your opinion is sorely biased.

    I'm never going back to having a non-SSD system.

    +1, SSDs make spindles feel so archaic.

    On the other hand you can't find out whether your fancy memory-storage is being hammered by listening to it, whereas an HDD being overworked is obvious/audible.

    I'm waiting for the SSD that has status lights or a piezo "HDD simulator" buzzer.

    I have an LED showing activity.

    I don't have to worry about head thrashing, because its good for random IO.

    I guess I could play some sound effects to give me that old school feeling.
