    Agreed...that's my point. Using a tool like TierOne let's you use a small/inexpensive SSD to speed up the computer, rather than moving your OS over to the SSD.

    Intel SSD Toolbox Update

    Mike, you are missing my point in a couple ways. I'm not saying the OS is on the SSD and apps are on the HDD. I'm saying the SSD is used as an accelerator for the computer. Anything that needs to be sped up goes through the relatively small SSD. You are sounding like costs are not an issue...

    Intel SSD Toolbox Update

    Good response, thanks. Ignoring the wear problem, SSD still have problems in desktop computers. Speed is the primary reason people want to use them, since the HDD has become the PC bottleneck. Unfortunately, SSD are too small to be the only disk in the computer. Bigger SSD are much more...

    Intel SSD Toolbox Update

    I suppose I agree to a point. The fact is, the memory inside SSD has limited write capability. They are similar to the memory used in digital cameras. They do wear out. It is true that spinning disks are mechanical, and therefore wear out too, but that industry has been around for a while...

    Intel SSD Toolbox Update

    Rather than install Windows on the SSD, I like to use the SSD as an offload device to speed up the computer. SSD are too small, and too expensive for larger ones (which are still too small), and they wear out more quickly than spinning disks. I use a tool to optimize performance around the SSD.

    I think the SSD should be used to accelerate your computer, rather than put all of Windows on it. As an acceleration tool, I don't worry about wearing it out. When it does, I replace it. Since Windows is not installed on it, it is no big deal to replace.

    Windows 7 won't install on new SSD

    Did you get this resolved?

    How would you use something that small? Would you put Windows on it, or use it for caching?
