would it be a good idea to have a SSD forum for it's own?
thanx for voting !
I see no need
Woof, Woof - Dawg
I vote no but I refuse to use the poll because I am unsure what "whatfore" is.
I'd recomment a storage sub-forum
SSD is too narrow.
A storage forum would be used for discussion about RAID, SSD, Optical (Blu-ray etc) and more.
That would be better IMO.
I don't think the subject is common enough to demand it's own forum. Also I think it is better for people to use the hardware forums for machine-specific problems/questions about SSDs.
That's a little too specific, don't you think?
Sure, we could make it a sub forum of the "Macs made in October 1986" forum.
A hard drive/ssd forum would be nice, but not necessary.
Op I don't understand why you think it would stand on its own? As of now its mentioned in conjunction with their respective parent topics (i.e. in the forum relating to the hardware group).
SSD's are still a bit too expensive (for the good ones) so the mass won't have adopted them yet. Most of the people using things like x25-m's in their MBP's and Mac Pros are used to solving their own problems.
Seems like a reasonable suggestion to me. Although I haven't contributed much to these forums, I did experience the process of searching through them extensively before I made the transition to SSD drives.
There are a lot of minor issues for those of us who are interested in making the ssd switch to research such as:
Which drives/controllers have stutter issues?
What adaptors will work in a Mac Pro?
What's the best way to clone the existing operating system drive without losing authorizations of installed apps (I still haven't figured this one out yet)?
Plus there are questions like the following:
When will the next generation be released driving current prices significantly lower and providing options for improved performance?
Does it make sense to raid a system drive with a pair of ssd's or just use one?
What firmware updates are available and what positive or negative impacts will they make?
Finally, I wonder what kind of performance difference streaming samples off of a ssd drive would make for music software or other applications that are disk intensive. Is this just one of many questions those interested in SSD's might have?
Would others have the same types of questions as SSD prices become more reasonable? Would it make sense to have all of these topics in one easy to find location?
What was there before Hard Drives, floppy disks?
Well, when Hard Drives came out, was there (in any forum) a different section just for Hard Drives?
As hard drives have been around since 1956, we'll probably never know
I think we need an Apple Newton forum. Seriously.
