HDDs are easily the most outdated technology that everyone is still using. Literally anyone who has used an SSD will tell you they are worth it. HDDs are so slow and ginormous and fucking loud, why the hell are we using moving storage in 2017???

>But SSDs are too expensive!
You can get a 500gb for like $150 and often even less than that during sales. 500gb is easily enough for anything since games and the OS are the only thing you need on a drive anyway, put everything else online faggot. If you seriously can't afford to get an SSD you should not own a computer because HDDs are fucking worthless and outdated as floppy disks.

People care more about the amount of data they can save onto their hard disk. As such, the price gap is enough to kill SSDs for most people, when most computers today are fast enough for regular usage anyways.
Most people just get a small SSD to put the OS onto, and use HDD for real stuff, exactly because the only speed they really care about that an SSD could make a (noticeable) difference on, is boot-up time.

when ssd's start having at least the same price/storage size ratio if not better also hdd's have a much much longer life.and i dont have a problem with my hdd's speed because im not a turbo autist who needs to turn on his computer in 2.6 sec instead of 3.

>> No.60125284

>2.6 sec instead of 3

Bit of an exaggeration. Windows 10 shuts down in about 20 seconds and boots up in about 40 seconds off my 7200rpm HDD. The same Windows 10 shuts down in 2 seconds and boots up in 5 seconds off my SSD. Rebooting is trivial with an SSD. Launching Windows 10 from my SSD, I can turn off my pc, cold boot, and get to a desktop before the Windows 10 HDD pc even fully shuts down.

SSD's aren't perfect. Currently they are far too expensive to do anything with other than use them as a boot drive, record 4k video, and a few other specific applications. Ideally, you'd like to have an SSD as your boot drive and a nice beefy HDD as your storage drive. I'd wager you could achieve that by spending no more than a total of $150 on the two drives.

God fucking dammit I hate these jews.
The enterprise world has already been messing with 60TB versions and they're making us wait till 2021 until it's affordable to buy a 4TB SSD.
I'd love nothing more than to replace my sluggish external with an SSD, but until that happens, unfortunately a HDD is the way to go with multiple TB of storage.

Nice security through obscurity you got going there. Let me know how that works out for you. Rather, don't, because I already know how it works for everyone.

Want real protection for your files? Save them to a hard drive, encrypt the hard drive, airgap it from the internet when not in use, and lock it in a safe when you're not using it.

This gives you technical AND LEGAL protections in the event the powers that be come after you. It won't necessarily save you from the government if they've really got it out for you but you've made it sufficiently difficult that if they want your data, they'd have to break into your house, crack your safe, and break the law enough that even the most corrupt court in the USA won't convict you of anything.

SSD's have a significant impact on game loading times. But games are also large and putting all of them on an SSD is not always possible. Data does not change much for most people so wear and tear is not really an issue unless you do a lot of things that use the drives a lot. My HDD's usually just get written a few times and data like movie rips remains static so that's not an issue. My main concern with spinning media is failure rates. Mechanical drives tend to die quicker (it used to be an issue with SSD's but not anymore).

Storage size and encryption.

At least last I recall it's not advisable to do whole disk encryption on a SSD because of increased wear load (it will go from 5~ years of writes to 2~ years). Neither drives last forever, just that HDDs are better for storage and often when a failure occurs you get bet some stuff off a HDD before it's completely gone, you can't with SSD.

Sure the price ratio is getting better, but for large size storage (mostly media), fast access time is basically irrelevant, unless you do editing stuff.
For now, the sane strategy is a SSD for OS/Apps and HDD for the rest.

If you populate your NAS with only SSDs and not HDDs, you're a richfag idiot.

Best bang/$ config is:

> splurge for 10GbE, even if it's just a crossover cable for a client workstation or two
