SSD vs HDD: Benchmarks


Essential Member
I recently upgraded from a 5400 RPM hard drive, to the 120 GB version of the SanDisk Extreme SSD. On my computer with a SATA 3 Gb/s configuration, my WEI score went from 5.7 to 7.7 and the performance gain is simply unbelievable. What's everyone else's experience moving from conventional hard drives to SSDs?

I've attached my CrystalMark benchmarks for the HDD and SSD (higher values are the SSD)
