Crucial M4 256GB SSD in Acer 1810T -- WOW

I knew it would speed things up but I still wasn't really prepared for the JUMP in performance! -- had found a good price on Crucial M4's a couple of weeks ago so.......................

 

Used Acronis 2012 Plus -- Acronis was something of a learning experience and I had some issues with my IcyDcok USB 3.0 docking port but ultimately got it ironed out.

 

I cloned the WD Blue 320GB that came with the 1810T to the M4 256GB SSD -- installation was relatively simple.

 

Windows experience for the Hard drive went from 5.2 for the WD Blue to a 7.5 for the Crucial M4!!

 

Nice. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

 

Now..... looks like I need to start planning for that Main Desktop upgrade.................................

Sounds like SSD addiction....you may need professional help to curb the cravings.

 

My wife thougt it was cute how I described the increased performance of my 1810T over dinner this evening :)

 

I think it's all PCDoc's fault -- he was the one to tell me to get a Crucial M4 late last year!! I may need a 12 step program!!

2TB of SSD? How much did that cost?

Now that's nice. I won't be happy until my home setup matches an enterprise setup.

Article I wrote last weekon the 256GB M4 for those interested in it.....or any SSD for that matter. Also discussed on BYOB 82

 

Excellent write-up and as always an Excellent Podcast.

 

Your article is so good I've printed it out to file in my binder to review with all future builds! Thanks!

LOL -- sounds like a great Prescription to me!!

Maybe a SSD patch I tape to my arm?
