SSD

SSD stands for Solid State Drive and they are flash based Hard drive, I'm a big fan of them and the reason is that I work quite allot with virtualizations software that allows me to test the products on various OS and scenarios, working on a traditional hard drive is quite slow and when most of my work is spent on waiting for OS to boot, and change scenarios it accumulates over time so I setup three SSD raids (all raid0):

1. 6 16GB Mtron which gives me crazy speed of 600mb/s
2. 2 128GB Corsair for my OS
3. 2 128GB Corsair for my main virtualize OS drive

Over a period of time I can say that this setup saved me allot of time and frustration and I can also add that until you worked from a SSD drive, you don't know what a computer is :)

This is a speed benchmark of the Mtron raid:
