    Yep, why wouldn't it? Your location? Have you seen everything I have given away at Bit-Tech?

    Just had to say it's pretty awesome having someone on the forum that give as much as you do TGS.

    I have a 120 that was in my wife's laptop for a little bit while I repaired her 600Gb spinning drive. Now I'm just waiting for a little money so I can put it into a HTPC built very quickly, in an ugly case. I sure wish I had money to make a great looking case, but I don't, so it will stay ugly for a long while.

    No, not for me. I have a really nice machine at home with three 24" monitors. At school, I have a not-as-good machine, but that still has an i7 2600, a 4870x2 and plenty of ram, and all that goes to a 28" monitor. My wife has a laptop that perfectly suits her needs. I have all the parts for a HTPC except a PSU. I should not be picky, but I've had my eye on a fanless 500W Kingwin PSU with really high reviews. So, yeah, I don't need a free computer and it should go to someone who really needs it. Really, I should be giving away a bunch of the extra stuff I have.

    Speaking of which, I have my for sale thread, which is still populated with some crap I'd like to not have any more. If anyone can convince me why they should have it for free, I'll send it to them free as long as they cover shipping.

    I don't have any SSD's.

    I don't really need one, but if I tried to upgrade my laptop, I would have to get much larger ones since I am running 2 1tb drives and they are getting full.

    To be honest I have not even powered up any of my desktop rigs in over 6 months and then it was to pull my resume and put it on my server.

    On a side note: One of my customers uses 250gb SSD's in one of their appliances. We were just told that they are EOL'd and the only comparable upgrade are the 480gb SSD's. The kicker? The 480's are cheaper...

    i think that as long as you do your research on how to set up a ssd properly, that they are quite reliable. i think the majority of the problems people claim to have are from improper setup.

    i also read in an article not too long ago that with the 10000 write limit for each cell, if you were to write every single cell every day, it would take 8 years to ruin the whole drive.

    although the math doesn't quite work out. oh well, whatever.

    There really isn't any kind of setup. You plug in the drive and it works. I guess you can run a tweak utility, but many people don't

    Samsung claims you can get 10 years out of their current drives

    I don't have a single SSD in the house, and there's probably about 20TB of space between the various PCs, Laptops and the server - I have considered putting one in my HTPC purely for the noise levels - right now the HDD is the loudest item in there. As the HTPC backs up to the server automatically capacity isn't really an issue - I've seen the price of the 60's dropping below 50 for the first time so it may well end up on a future shopping list.

    Yes I did. Do I need to add my post on Bit-Tech or is what I already posted good?
