Hey everyone I'm not at all experienced with SSD as I've worked with regular spinning hard drives my whole life. I've been looking into upgrading my existing 500GB/7200/3Gbps hard drive in my 2011 MBP. I know there are many advantages of SSD, but most comparisons I've seen are between SSD and standard 7200rpm drives with 16MB buffer size and SATA 3Gb/s (like mine). So I'd really like to hear from especially those who have actually made the decision between SSD and the drives below, and what they think. Pricing is not an issue in this case. There are two hard drives that I think could be potential condenders, if not victors. These are based on either reviews and/or specs. Here they are: WD Scorpio Black (mostly based on reviews) 7200rpm / 16MB / 3Gbps Product Page Seagate Momentus XT (solid state hybrid, based on specs/reviews) 7200rpm / 32MB / 6Gbps Product Page What I do: HD1080p editing/compositing/realtime playback 24-bit audio recording/editing Import >50GB batches of files at a time What do you think? Thanks!
