The entrance of SSDs into the market has really brought up the question if its worth the upgrade. The value for the space provided does not suit everyone’s budget, however it is a worthy upgrade if you are looking to increase the speed of your everyday computing. Most SSDs are now used as primary boot drives for your Operating System. They are fast, reliable and silent, which makes it ideal for any computer enthusiast.This Vertex 2 SSD from OCZ  has really impressed me with its performance and now is used as my boot drive along with 1TB HDD for my data and non-primary applications.
