    i am thinking of returning my SSD. i don't know if it really made a difference for me or not. i am going to be installing ML on my old HDD and see if i really notice a difference or not. if i do ill think about keeping it if not ill return it.

    If you never noticed the difference, then having an SSD is a waste of $$ for you.

    I didn't know it was possible to not notice a difference with an SSD... did you make sure the speeds checked out properly?

    If you didn't notice any performance change you got a defective SSD. The difference is quite obvious.

    Very strange that you didn't notice a difference. when i installed mine programs opened instantly, i haven't seen an icon bounce in the dock since i put in the SSD. Also boot time went from over a minute to about 16 seconds.

    Which SSD are you using? Is it SATA II or III?

    Do you mean worthy difference for your needs
    or plain difference?

    Ive just uploaded a new video to my YouTube channel in regards to the stock HDD speeds vs. a Samsung 830 SSD speeds. The difference is immense! Apps open much, MUCH, quicker, the whole sytem is nipper and quieter.
    I would be without.
    In the video I used Disk Speed Test to test the write and readspeeds of the stock HDD, an dthen the same test on the SSD. Watch it and then tell me there isnt a big difference! lol

    What SSD are you using? I can't imagine not noticing a difference when using an SSD. If you're not launching a lot of programs or saving large files, stuff like that, then I suppose you might not notice the difference during your regular use. But at the very least you should notice a substantial difference in how quickly the computer boots up.
