    20 seconds loading screen? Damn. Long enough to get bored, but too short to visit the toilet. Dreadful!

    Pros: Writing & Reading speeds, Reliability, Lower consumption, Density, Lack of noise, Cost of deployment.

    Cons: lower capacity & higher price.

    By pretty much every fucking tech reviwer.

    Is it "worth" it? It depends on the purpose of it, video games? In GTA V we are talking about 1-5 extra FPS and almost less 30 of loading time, yes, it should run just fine in a HDD, but calling it an "inferior" product purely based on size and price is beyond retard, its like saying a sports car is inferior to a fucking old van cuz it transports less people and its more expensive.

    DJOGamer PT post was so full of win

    HDDs rule. much cheaper and higher storage capacity. 5400 rpm fast enough to access files and do my things. absolutely no problems with it in the last 25 years. Lots of extra bandwidth space for webserver and 196GB potato RAM. modern simulators which I'll never play because I am not a fucking boomer.

    I think an SSD is cheaper in the long run.

    I can see all those, except reliability
    Explain that please, and don't just say 'lol trust me bro'

    Nothing of that sort
    Just that nobody actually gave me a good enough reason to switch, when I've had no problems with my current gear (if it ain't broken and all that...)
    Not to mention nobody answered those 3 questions I posted:

    HDD MASTER RACE

    I CAN STORE 6.5X MORE PORNO WHILE MY ARMA3 LOAD TIMES IS ONLY LOWERED 0.1-0.2% PER KILOSECOND

    GIVE ME 1 REASON WHY I SHOULD WASTE 15 ESCUDOS FOR A 128GB

    Lifetime depends on your usage patterns and environmental parameters. I don't think there's a definitive answer to that. From my own anecdotal observations they do last longer.

    Regarding durability, I never lost an SSD due to impact damage (unlike HDD). Makes sense, since SSDs do not have any moving parts. May not be relevant if it is an internal drive for a stationary PC.

    Doubt it.

    Depends on how 'lost' it is, but probably no.

    You don't even have to trust the explanation of some random internet dude.


    As I said, SSDs are nothing new, tons of reviews and comparisons out there made by professionals a quick google search away from you:







    … it’s not as much as a problem of “just trust me bro”, but more of “just google it bro”, don’t just take my word for it.

    To be fair, it's closer to "just trust me" if you consider longterm-attrition.

    Actually if we still used Escudos then 15 euros would roughly some 3000 escudos (wich back then meant you could buy like 30 sandwitches)

    Sorry resident Star Citizens but the single most retarded guy I've ever had the displeasure of knowing in my life, a fan of all kinds of shit games too, is a massive fan of this game.

    That means this game is utter trash as that guy is 100% wrong 100% of the times. Wouldn't touch with a yard-long pole.

    Great... Now that we are done with this "SSD hype" n "SSDs r n inferior product" dumbfuckery can we just move back into poking fun at this train wreck of a project?

    I wouldn't install windows on an HDD if you pointed a gun in my head. If it was a 5400 RPM one i'd just ask you to shoot me.

    I would have no problem if this was sold as a Lesbian DLC - to each his own.

    But as it is this will lead to dramatically increased homphobia, not reduce it. No hetero man will accept to be forced to play as a cringy dyke, if he does he is not a man.

    A ton of these new games will lose half their customers only because of AGENDA. They may think that they have enough customer already which may the case but there will be many other games who follow them who have not. That means many people will suffer as a consequence of agenda. But this is also a good thing as it will create opportunities for the smaller milsim developers who have the artistic freedom to skip this bullshit.

    It's pretty, but...I see precisely zero actual gameplay in that, so what even is it?
