I was thinking about getting an 128/256 msata ssd as an OS drive to make my system run faster.
Would getting a 1 tb ssd be better/faster vs using a hybrid msata/mechanical drive?
Is it worth the money & investment?
Just looking for people's opinions on cost/benefit.

personally, key word, PERSONALLY, i feel that there is a small group of people that actually need a TB of solid state memory. putting the OS on ssd is a no brainer, and then the handful of applications you use regularly, if you play an MMORPG or are into sandbox types of games (namely bethesda titles) then put those on as well. but normal games, and most other applications simply just do not benefit enough for you to shell out the money for an entire ssd TB.

get a 120gb or a 240gb if 120 seems a little tight, and then pick up a TB HDD for the rest, save a couple hundred bucks to spend on the rest of your rig, or just pocket it. i am not a fan of those hybrid drives, just get two separate ones.

once again, my opinion. i just personally don't think that microsoft word and itunes loading 2 seconds faster is worth hundreds of my dollars.

I agree... but 1TB makes a lot more sense for notebook users that have only one storage bay and need the space.

precisely. Even then I feel that 500gb is more realistic, but your point is spot on.

people who work from notebooks, or super hardcore programmers are the only ones who should even be looking at things like this.

Yeah, hybrid was misleading. I meant what you are suggesting, installing a msata along side a mechanical drive.

Thanks to both of you for your suggestions.

Western Digital has a solution for people that have laptops with only HD bay, a 1TB HD with a 120GB SSD built in.

A 1TB SSD is pretty awesome. However, I found that even in my desktop, my larger 2TB SSHD($95) works great for my needs as a Steam(gaming) and storage drive. I don't see myself shelling out $400+ for a single TB. The performance gain just isn't that noticeable when gaming on an SSD. SSD may decrease load times slightly, but not enough to justify paying 10times the cost of an SSHD. Admittedly, I do have a large collection of games. So having twice the space makes a lot more sense for me.

Obviously it's a want.

As someone mentioned previously, it depends on your application. Another includes people who run multiple virtual machines on their computer. An SSD is perfect because it allows the different VMs immediate access to whatever bits they need without having to wait, like they would with a mechanical drive. It significantly increases all operational activities, and it's truly like running multiple separate computers, each with exclusive access to mechanical drives, on a single computer. More speed means more productivity. Multiple VMs eat up hard drive space very quickly, but 1TB goes a long way towards fulfilling that kind of space requirement.

I disagree. If your data on your mechanical HDD were to go bellyup (which it will) and you haven't backed it up in a while, an SSD is a life-saver. Just depends on the risks you're willing to take with your data. Sure, for some people 1TB is overkill for their data but for some (not just hard-core programmers) like scientists, engineers, students, photographers, etc... SSD storage is more reliable and safer than a mechanical HDD.

For everyone else, ask yourself what is the worth of your digital family pictures and videos? Will you be ok if you lost them due to a mechanical HDD failure? Are they replaceable?

So, if you're a risk-taker store your data on a mechanical HDD and pray you don't hear the "click-click" sound of death. But if you want peace of mind, get an SSD for your data storage. It's worth the money.

as another poster stated, they do actually make hybrid drives with a HDD and SSD included that are nifty, but honestly i don't really like the tech just yet. Either way, Notebook or not, 1 TB is a bit much, 500GB should be the maximum needed, the Samsung 500gb's have nice sales somewhat frequently.
