I would have thought with a desktop computer, you'd have one SSD for the OS and another ( or two ) for storage. Can't remember the last time I saw someone using a WD Blue as their only storage.

What do you need to store? No one stores anything anymore. It's all streaming. You can get any movie and/or song in the highest quality streaming.  I am using maybe 200 gigs on my desktop.  Also doesn't hurt having a 50/25 connection.

 

And for an SSD there really is no need. Outside of loading up windows 20 seconds faster they are useless. If you need games or programs to load up faster then you'd use Ramdisk. No exaggeration its 10x faster then an SSD.

I have desktop computer with a couple of WD Black 500GB HD that are configured using RAID 0.  I know, living on the edge.  This computer is purely used for entertainment and to occasionally connect through VPN to work.

 

If this thing dies on me, my games are all on Steam and my music is all on Google Play All Access. I can't think of anything that is critical that would be lost if this PC disappeared today.  Then again, I have been gradually moving to a remote access experience for some time.  I look for solutions that allow me to build a new PC and get it up and running without having to move files from one storage drive to another.

Setup a N.etwork A.attached S.torage? Really easy to add storage too it, able to run 24/7 without restarting and able to easily setup in any config you want, raid 0, 1, 1+0, 5 etc.

A home NAS was my solution for years, but even that has to be maintained and updated to keep up with technology, and it costs money that I can spend on other things now.  Really, with the internet speed and reliability that is available today, I have no problems.  I really don't have anything I need to store locally.

wat?

You can't stream everything. There's plenty of music and video not available for streaming. You also can't get anything like blu-ray quality from streaming. Some of us actually like owning things too. Of course there is the need for SSDs, just because you don't doesn't mean other people don't. Ramdisks are not feasible for 95% of people. To actually get any use from one you'd need 32GB ram minimum, at which point you could be getting a decent SSD for the same price and actually having some storage space.

Ram is DIRT cheap. You can easily get 32 gigs for the cost of an SSD and then some. First you need to make sure your desktop is 100% compatible to use an SSD properly. I can't count how many times I've had people get an SSD and install it and wonder why they only getting twice the speed of their normal HDD. Then these same people have NO idea how an SSD works and they run daily defrags on it and wonder why they can't write anything to the SSD 4 months later.

 

With Ramdisk you can set it up 2 separate ways to get 2 very different results.  You can set it up to get the absolute fastest program speed and VM speed. The VM speeds alone make it worth its weight in gold to be able to boot up windows 7, linux, mac in under 6 seconds.  Then you can setup your browser to run off ramdisk to once again get the absolute fastest speed and an extra layer of security knowing that not even the CIA/FBI could check your viewing patterns purely from your desktop.

Yea I have been considering getting one but just havnt gotten around to it, for the extra speed you get I dont really need one, my pc is plenty fast enough for me. I forgot to mention I have a 2 Tb external samsung story which i keep all my stuff on.
