I'm tempted, but I just did a clean install on a fresh mechanical HD and cold boot to desktop in 20 seconds, still not cheap enough for me to consider a good value upgrade.

I paid £150 a couple of years back for my Samsung 830 (128GB) and whilst I consider SSDs then and now to be overpriced, it was still worth every penny. If I didn't have one, £60-65 for one of these would be a no-brainer.

Their benefits reach further than merely boot up times. I can open my browser with an insane amount of tabs restored and they load to completion almost instantly. No waiting for a HDD to spin up if it's been idle for some time. Silent, cool, doesn't require defragging. In daily use, the whole perception of 'lag' seems to disappear in everything you do.

The only thing I don't like is they often seem to have flimsy connectors. But if you're careful and not planning on moving it around much/ever, it's a non-issue.

My only reservation is whilst you can get away with 120gb for a W7/W8 installation, with a sensible and not excessive amount of applications installed, I believe a 250gb SSD would really be the one to go for, definitely when they hit the £90 mark. With greater capacities comes faster speeds and the jump from 120-250gb is often worthwhile in that respect.

Hmm thanks you've sold it to me quite well, but I think I would go for a 250gb and they seem to be dropping nearer to £100 now could be the time
