Not sure if this is the SSD talking or Windows 8.1.

Or simply just both. So fast. :3

Got my 840 Evo & Windows 8.1 running. I don't know what the big deal was with all the latest Windows complaints. I've been using for only an hour & so far so interesting, fast, and fluid etc.

Huh, I didn't realize SSDs were so much more affordable now. I'd consider picking one up if I felt like redoing Windows. But I don't. I can live with the load times for now. I'm sure the moment I grab a 250gb model, 1TB will become the standard out of nowhere anyway.

But grats, sounds like a cool thing to get.

In the end, all is good. I love it over 7. Windows 8.1 feels much faster, more responsive, fluid, and extremely more accessible imo. I'm glad I made the jump, but not glad that Windows 9 is apparently just around the corner. >_> this is what I get for purchasing my first ever (for once) operating system? FFS.

I'm sorry, did I insult your precious Windows 7?

People don't dislike 8.1 because it's slow, they dislike it because it's different and they don't like metro. Of course, it's personal preference... some people love metro.

How is it slow? I would agree with you that they just can't let go (Windows 7). My own brother doesn't bother with Windows 8 because in his words, he doesn't want to learn a new operation system. (I know, right?). I myself, would be one of those people that don't care or can do without metro, but in all honesty. It's not as bad as I thought it would be on a desktop. If anything, I like it because everything feels much more accessible (in terms of ease and quickness). Keep in mind though, this experience I'm having is with dual monitors. :3 I could see how an app taking up the entire screen may bug people.
