Final Thoughts


Solid state storage is the most important performance component found in a modern system today. Without solid state storage, you do not even have a performance system.

Whether you are a casual user, or an enthusiast, there is only one component that truly brings performance that becomes an absolute necessity once experienced. Solid state storage has revolutionized the personal computing experience like nothing else. I build systems for people in the community where I live, and the same thing always happens. After their first SSD, every computer they own must be upgraded with a SSD; they can no longer live life in the slow lane.

When SSDs first started appearing on the scene, there was a lot of black magic associated with them; they were the most exotic and expensive component you could buy. There were so many settings and tweaks involved with owning a SSD, and keeping it running in an optimal fashion, that only committed enthusiasts were willing to invest the time and money necessary to experience SSD bliss.

Today, SSDs are becoming mainstream. Prices have become affordable, and there is no need to be a tech guru to install one and have it run reliably. As it stands, there is nothing whatsoever a user needs do other than just installing their SSD and using it just like any HDD. However, if you are an enthusiast looking to get the most from your SSD, then this guide is for you. The settings and techniques that are outlined in this guide can take your SSD, and your entire system for that matter, to the next level of cutting-edge performance, while maintaining 24/7 reliability.

You wanted to know how the pros do it, and now you know.
