15 Months+ with SSD
15 months, yeah. And even closer to 16 XD
You may not even remember it, but I mentioned on an earlier entry
that I would tell more about my experience on upgrading my machine with a Solid-State Drive (SSD) after spending more times using it.
And, yeah. Then over 15 months passed XD
The SSD I got is Samsung SSD 850 EVO
500GB. It's powered by 3D V-NAND Technology and comes with 5 year limited warranty.
The package includes:
- the SSD unit
- Installation Guide
- Warranty Statement Summary
- One-stop Install Navigator Manual & Software CD
I simply enjoyed my experience with the SSD and then forgot to write about it XD
Really, even after all those months, it turned out that I don't have many of things to tell.
That's it: I simply enjoy it.
Things got really smoother and faster. Even LibreOffice that used to take a long time to start with hard disk drive, now starts up really nice and fast.
There are some gripes, but I'm not sure whether it is SSD's flaw or Ubuntu's bug, because I installed a new version of Ubuntu when I replaced my HDD with the SSD. Previously, I used Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and gaming on it was really nice (even Dota 2 runs acceptably on my underpowered machine). However, after upfrading to SSD and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, I noticed some lags on some games.
However, all those doesn't even come close to overshadowing my general enjoyment of the SSD.
Well, I didn't even try to see how will it work if I downgrade to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS instead XD
With my system being considerably better for my creative works, it really shows the merit of upgrading to SSD.
Well, I think that's all. Thanks for reading :)
