Write Speeds for HDD and SSD
I was just curious.. I am considering purchasing a SSD Samsung drive for use on my Linux system. After examining my used space I have found I only take up 16.6GB of total drive space for everything but /home. So obviously I dont really need a huge drive and feel 64GB is plenty.
However I have noticed that different capacities have different write speeds. 64GB is 160MB/s while 128GB is 320MB/s. Anything higher is just silly waste of money to me as it wont really be used, since /home will be another hard disk I have.
So my question is, for Linux does the write speed really make a huge diff? Or maybe a better way to ask this is: Will I notice any difference between a white speed of 160 and 320? Both drives have read speeds of I think 520MB/s so, thats not a factor right now.
