Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5 inch Basic SATA Solid St&hellip by Samsung
I've never used an SSD before, and decided to let this 250gb Samsung evo pop my cherry.

I've seen videos on Youtube showing how fast these things are, but I guess you don't appreciate these speeds unless you experience them for yourself.

The speeds people mostly talk about are bootup times. My PC with this in boots up in 10-15 seconds. It shuts down in less them than that. After a Windows update, it's no longer a grown to reboot the system - it does it in seconds. Programs load up in most cases instantly. Games fly open.

Obviously there are lots of factors involved in this, but my i5 4670k has an idle temp of just 31 degrees. This paste is certainly a useful cog in the machine.
