Our systems have moved to almost entirely to solid-state drives (SSDs) for primary storage, making our old video looking at hard drive vs SSD boot times rather outdated. But are all of the SSDs we use equal, or are there benefits to one over another for typical computer usage? We compared four of the Samsung models we carry to see how they compare in boot up, file copy, and application launch times.
How quickly a computer boots up doesn’t always correspond to how much processing power the system has, or how fast the system drive is. This blog talks a little about what contributes to both faster and slower boot times, with a video comparison.
