Default OCZ Vertex Real-World Test Caught on Tape: SSD vs HDD

While all those benchmark charts displaying 200+mb/s read and 150+mb/s write are impressive to see, it's also good to actually have some idea of what that extra performance brings you in real life. We prepared two identical laptops with Windows 7 and Windows XP, one had a conventional HDD, the other a brand new OCZ Vertex SSD. The result is worth checking out.

The problem is that i don't have a desktop anymore atleast for 2.5 years...

I checked google and it seems there might be a chance it would go
need to check it out in the future because i hate startup time when i am talking with a custumor.

grtz

those SSDs in netbooks are low end, SD cards with build-in converter to SATA, they have very low I/O , nowhere near the performance level of these OCZ Vertex drives
