Solid State HD for WinXP Pro / Vista boot installation…
Oct 12, 2008, 1:21 PM
I’m thinking about getting a Solid state HD as my 1st primary Sata II HD for installing WinXP Pro (And possibly Win Vista Ultra in the future)
This specific one caught my attention:
OCZ SSD 60GB (Sata II Core Series V2)
Its specs are superior to even the fastest 7200 – 10000RPM magnetic HD!
Sequential Access - Read Up to 170 MB/s
Sequential Access - Write Up to 98 MB/s
So, is it worth the money and will it work flawlessly / faster for installing and booting WinXP Pro?
Thanks in advance

No, not even close to a good HD's performance.
Unless you want to spend the $600+ on a good SSD, the fastest drive available for your machine right now is the Velociraptor.
