Default SSD drives

heard nothing but great things about them. thinking of replacing my standard hd with this. any downside.
im told the startup time is superfast,
does that hold as well when starting edius up?
brands recommended to me were go with the pny, bang for the buck
or the higher priced intels
input?
main advantage on these is quicker start times?
what about perfomance while editing

They are just great Widows start is super fast, Edius loads faster, don't think it has too much effect of Editing but the computer seems much more responsive
I did have an OCZ that lasted only 2 years but my recommendation is a SAMSUNG, I have a 250G 840 EVO and with the Samsung optimazation software makes it even better
Just a warning the Samsung software stops the standard Windows disk image working or don't use the optimisation, so you would need another image program, I use O&O Disk Image

If you want the best get Samsung Pro 840. Although I did use a 500G Samsung EVO when Newegg had a big 1 day sale and it was pretty damn fast.

You'd make an image of your current HDD with something like the free EaseUS Todo Backup. Create a boot disk (also with the EaseUS Todo Backup software), switch hard drives to the SSD, boot the PC with the boot disk and restore the image to the SSD.

I'd advise to save the image on another internal HDD.

To get maximum performance from your SSD, make sure it's aligned. You can use Acronis Align Tool.

Details can be found here:

http://download.intel.com/support/ss...ide_g17251.pdf

There is an Intel Data Migration Tool mentioned in that link.

what size is your current disk?

if larger than the new one, you can't use the Win7 image tool (unless there is room to shrink the existing C drive prior to making the image in disk management, I posted instructions some time ago)

Hi:

I have changed my HDD to Samsung SSD (840 EVO):

1) Installed the Samsung-Software onto my (old) System-Disk.

2) Connected the Samsung-SSD via USB to the PC and started the Samsung-Tool Magician which transferred/copied the System-Disk (250GB) onto the Samsung-SSD (250GB).

3) Replaced the old System-HDD by the Samsung-SSD.

4) Start the PC - all worked well without any problem!! (inclusive Edius).

5) Optimized the System - works well still :-)

6) Started the standard Windows tool to get a System-image - no problem.

Hope this info is of any value for you.
Regards kurt

The laptop I have listed in my signature came originally with everything loaded on a normal 500GB hard drive. I upgraded to to 128GB SSD and keep the OS and programs on it and a 750GB second build in hard drive for rendering and data.

I love it, Windows comes up in under 20 seconds and I think it does over all edit and output faster. I can put an hour of ACVHD clips on the time line (720p clips on a SD timeline) have a few other thigns on it, adjust layouter and color and kick it off to create a DVD with no menu and have it done in less than a couple of hours!!

Granted not all that is SSD speed but processor and graphics card but hey it all works together for a great NLE experience.

Jeff
