Is your Penguin equipped with SSD? If yes, how do you like it?


Hya,

Question:

Is your Penguin equipped with SSD? If yes, how do you like it?

Happy Penguins!

I have two EeePCs running Linux on SSDs, a 701 with a 2gb SSD and a 901 with a 4gb primary and 16gb secondary SSD. They are not the best SSDs, write speed is kinda bad. They are certainly still usable if you work around the limitations, they run quieter, cooler and draw less power, so I think it is a pretty good trade off.

I could upgrade to some much faster ones with more capacity, but I haven't seen the need yet.

Cool My SSD's

I also have 2 SSD drives, one is the new intel fast drive, it does make a difference, no noise and chatter of moving heads.. yes, the write speed is kind of crummy, but for the most part, they're ok, kind of pricey, but ok

Also have an EeePC 900 which has two SSDs (4GB and 16GB). I've got them hooked up with LVM which works fine. As above, write speed is terrible, but read is good and no noise, which is a godsend.

I bought one last week.

Hya,

I bought one last week FALCON 6 64GB, SATA-300.

I put about 9G of data, ran database program on these data.

Compared to HD, (sequential read), about 5-40% speed up.

Good investment.

Cheers.
