"Pros: This thing is fast after all it is a SSD

Cons: Not as fast as existing hard drive configuration.

Other Thoughts: I currently have two WD SATA6 Raptors 10,000rpm in RAID0 using Windows XP on a Gigabyte X58 board, I7 3.2 quad core cpu and 6G of Kingston HyperX RAM.

My Raptors still out-perform the single ssd.
Boot up and real world usage are slower on the ssd.

I did a fresh install of XP and used a SSD tweak program to optimize.

I still use XP because I bought a Volume Liscense 8 years ago that lets me do a legal installs on as many machines and as often as I want.

XP still does everything I need to do on a computer.

If it ain't broke don't fix it.
I am a self taught enthusiast that has built, repaired or upgraded 184 computers in the last 10 years."




It's a review for a kington hyperX SSD on newegg. He claims he's an enthusiast builder, but IMO he's pretty far from it. He probably wasn't using the right controller or something to make his raptors in raid 0 go faster than the SSD

Not to mention the tweaking that would need to be done to get optimal performance from an ssd on windows xp its pretty dated.. And man 184 computers in 10 years I got nothing on that guy :p

He's probably just throwing out a high number to make himself sound like he is more tech savvy. Honestly, I don't think anyone getting enthusiast setups will be running Windows XP. Sure it's stable, but 7 is what you need to get the most performance on something like an SSD. His hardware wasn't very impressive for being an "enthusiast" either. At least he didn't give himself full tech level.
