Anyone who has one will say yes,
I don't have one as I prefer to centre my money on W/c gear but as soon as ssd's are in my 'affordable' bracket, I'll most likely grab one as well
research obviously as to good brands but even a low end ssd is going to show you an improvement over a mech drive,
most people use a smaller (60-128Gb) ssd for O/s and maybe a few favourite programs, and a mech drive for storage
*Edit, it won't improve gaming btw, only loading times
Second motos approach. well. besides the WC. There have been a LOT of sales below $1 a gigabyte lately though. I know I don't need it. my load times are fine. sleep mode is faster than an SSD. But its getting tempting. Newegg has/had a crucial m4 256GB for 199. But the money is better sunk into your GPU. or bills. or savings lol
^ That's why I want to know how did he managed to come up with that statement. Is it pure speculation? Did he got the data himself based on experience or did he read it from a test conducted somewhere?
