SSD – The S’s stand for speed!

Today my OCZ Agility 3, 2.5 inch SSD which I ordered last week finally arrived, as soon as I got it I started unrevealing the mess that is the interns of my PC and adding the drive to my machine, it was a simple job in which I just had to connect a SATA cable and a power cable.

Because I bought a reasonably small capacity SSD — only 60GB — I’m using it as my boot drive, so it only contains windows and a few of my most used programs, both of which had to be installed again, due to the increased speed over my 7200RPM hard drive Windows 7 was installed in a mere 8 minutes compared to the 40 minutes I’m used to.

So far I’ve noticed some other performance gains including a much faster boot up, measurable in seconds rather than minutes as well as Visual Studio being much faster from a cold boot.

Thats all for now,
