Solved SSD + HDD vs. HDD Tags: SSD Storage Hard Drives Option Last response: August 23, 2013 6:20 PM in Storage Share Lmn August 23, 2013 6:09:37 PM Hey everyone, I've been lurking on this site for ages. Thought its about time to make a post. I have the option of getting an 3GB/s 30GB SSD to attach in the mSata slot of my laptop as I need large storage and it currently has a 5400rpm HDD. Should I buy it or instead just get a new Hybrid Hard Drive e.g Momentus XT and replace the old hard drive?

I have two otherwise lappies on neighboring desks .... one has 128 GB SSD and a 7200 rpm HD.....the other has the Momentus XT.....The Momentus boots a lil slower, but you need a stopwatch to tell the difference (< 0.5 seconds) Share Can't find your answer ?
