Once the price drops for higher capacity drives, I'll consider it. Right now, it's really not on my radar.

Got my Crucial M4 128GB for $95 months ago, worth every penny. Only game I have on there is Minecraft, other than that I don't care much for faster loading times in games. Opening programs or loading files is a breeze.

It doesn't sound practical to me. Unless you can get a few TBs for a reasonable price, I'll pass. The only SSD I need are my SS Decontrol albums.

You haven't experienced games with excruciating load times have you? I'm talking 2-5 minutes on a 7,200 rpm drive.

They're not for general storage at the moment, they're most useful for the OS and programs, and 128/256 GB serves that role quite well. You really don't comprehend the difference until you have a SSD. I absolutely hate working with a computer that doesn't have one now, and so do all of my friends that I convinced to get computers with SSDs.

I have a hybrid drive, 750GB, works great, I have a 30 seconds or less boot on my laptop (it was around 1 minute and 5 seconds with a 7200rpm drive) and I still have good room for stuff....

The drive in my laptop died so I replaced it with a 128GB Samsung 840.

Got one as my boot drive. No complaints really. $90 for a 120 GB, and it's nice to see typical stuff like scans and installations blaze by. It hasn't changed my world or anything, but again, it's nice and suits my needs. I do plan on getting a 250 GB dedicated solely to I/O heavy games, even though they're all a bit pricey.
