NoteBook SATA transfer rate is around 10% lower than DeskTop, especially 4K Write.
3830TG SATA3 transfer rate is lower than PC, but itís still acceptable.
Time to Logon 5~6 seconds
Time to Desktop 14~15 seconds
Previously, I use TOSHIBA MK6461GSY 640GB 7200, Time to Desktop was 42 seconds.
SanDisk Extreme 240GB in Time to Desktop is 15 seconds.
I use same NoteBook for both drives and install same drivers and software.
SSD really can speed up NoteBook. SSD booting speed is 2.8 times faster than HDD.
Of course, starting software is also much faster, especially you can feel for bigger files.
These three years, SSD all drop price annually. It can encourage users and market to move to SSD.
In 2010, 32GB was 120USD and 64GB was 220USD. Last year, 64GB was 120USD and 128GB was 220USD.
This year, the market is starting to wriggle. Recently, 120/128GB and 240/256GB are starting to drop price in some regions.
SanDisk Extreme 240GB price in Taiwan is 7800NTD, around 266USD.
Using SandForce SF-2281 high speed controller and synchronize NAND Flash IC to own high performance.
This cost performance can be the lowest price in same market position.
SanDisk just comes into SSD market and go straight to low price and high performance product line.
If they also provide good warranty and firmware upgrade, SanDisk can be a new brand with high C/P.
