My Current Hardrive is a Cavier green 500 gb it is about 2.5-3 years old.
I notice my system sometimes freezes and transfer rates are pretty slow and overall it feels kinda slow.
I should also say i'am thinking about getting an ssd probably a 60 gb maybe 120, i hear alot of good things about it and if i decide to purchase an ssd, what kind of real world perfomance will i get out of it compared to my current HDD?. I would also like to ask if there is any modern HDD capable of giving me a significant boost in speed again compared to my current HDD especially since i can purchase a 2tb hardrive for the same amount as a 120 gb ssd

Please help me to decide whether to get a ssd (60-120gb) or a new HDD (2tb) or just keep my current set-up

P.S i would be great if someone linked me to some real world tests comparing the two or even mine.

need the rest of your system specs... may not be the drive. I use HDD on my main desktop and on my older laptop I replaced the HDD with an SSD. It seems to run smoother and faster, but I don't use it much for apps. when's the last time you cleaned out your system and put in a new OS?
