Standard price, but these drives are good as well as their price.

Higher capacity increases performance?

I purchased this on the last promo and really like it. It's uses about 15W less than a traditional hard drive too. FYI.

Traditional 2.5" hard drives should use under 5 watts (they can be powered by USB) and 3.5" typically under 10 watts even at load. SSDs are 0.5-2w.

For sure. The more NAND dies, the better the performance. [dies in the integrated circuit sense, not dies as in end of life. bigger capacity drives have more individual NAND chips on their PCBs]

Also the controller used in an SSD impacts performance a lot (Crucial drives like to use Phison controllers for example, other drives use Micron controllers, etc. Samsung uses their own controller I think but don't quote me on this one it might have changed) It's worth researching if you're in the market for an SSD. It really does matter.

Yes. Note the increase in preformance from doubling capacity decreases as you get bigger and bigger. I.E. the performance increase from a 120gb ssd to a 240gb ssd is bigger (more noticeable) than the performance increase from a 240gb ssd to a 480gb ssd.

This doesn't apply to spinning hard disk drives, just SSDs.

It does apply a tiny bit to HDD's as larger HDD's will write data more compactly on the disc platter and speed up sequential reading by not having to move the read heads as far compared to a lower capacity HDD.

I just may have to try a SSD one of these days. Too many other things seem to break down, just as tax return time comes. Microwave 2 weeks ago, washing machine this week, & (knock on wood) hopefully, this will be it for a while.

Makes sense. But say I only have $40 for a hard drive upgrade. Is the performance increase from an older 7200 drive to this substantial? Or do I have to get up to higher capacities for it to make a big difference?
