    At this point I think I could go back...but that would only be if I had no choice. Sure the gain in performance was night and day, but being as I have been using 100% mechanical drives for the past 20 years I think Ill be OK. Hell if I can go from a quad core m17x and dell xps 1645 to a 3 year old LV x200s I can adjust to anything. :p

    Yeah no way Ill be able to change everything over to SSD as the space I need for data alone would warrant buying a drive thats alot more expensive then my laptop + upgrades. OS drives? Sure, but I also dont see any reason to update/upgrade my other rigs as they are all servers that function well enough as is.

    Welcome to the SSD Universe; very nice...

    Now, be very sure you have -current- backups of the -entire- SSD, since you're in the OCZ Galaxy portion of the SSD Universe, in which stars are prone to go supernova at any moment with -no- advance warning... I and many, many others on this board know about this directly, and most of us have purchased only -one- OCZ SSD in our lifetimes.

    Next time, buy one of the more reliable brands of SSD, of which there are many posts on the board to guide you...

    I never understood that either. N7720 + Samsung 830 boots with all programs running very very fast, from cold.

    I think 25s is for my G55VW with Seagate SSH since I have to wait a little for them to start, is not instant.

    Shut down seems about the same with both.

    Including POST?

    On my G73, it takes about 25 secs from the moment i press the power button, POST, windows, password login and launching my browser.
