  • SSDs are actually more prone to sudden death than HDDs, particularly during certain power events. Is this rare? Yes. Unheard of? No.

    Interesting results. Your laptop results are kind of a head-scratcher, much better than I would have expected. I run CS6 with a GTX 750 ti and my main goal was stressing CPU and filling RAM, never ...
  • There's a feature for that...  :)
  • Replied in The numbers
    Large File Speed Test The link is to a PS Action. It creates its own image and runs a series of edits. I think this is the same version I ran for my 3770K benchmark above. If you care to run it, ...
  • Replied in The numbers
    Here are the results of my real world benchmarks on my dual boot system: W8.1 on HDD and W10 on SSD. I timed boot to login screen, PS launch times and PS Large File Test time. A word about PS LFT: ...
  • It would have been instructive for you to have benchmarked your computer as you received it and then again with the SSD. It might have taught others something as well.
  • This has been an interesting thread. The advice offered ranges from OK to questionable to not-so-good. I guess one take-away for me is I've added another member to my ignore list. Life it too ...
  • Agree. +1000, Everybody preaches SSD for the apps and OS, but it's not essential — far from it. I have a dual boot system with Win 8.1 on a spinner (Raptor) and Win 10 on a Samsung SSD. When I'm ...
  • In some ways, this update seems a bit buggier than most... 3 months may turn into 6. I run a dual-boot with Win 8.1 and Win 10 and actually have more functionality in 8.1 since my 10 install is ...
  • The are such glasses that are designed for color critical work and reduce transmission of only the most damaging part of the spectrum, i.e., ~430-450nm (IIRC). I've done a little reading on this ...
  • A very good thing to consider since photos are simply independent data that can be backed up directly, i.e., copied to other media. This is vastly preferable to placing images in a monolithic, ...
  • Back before I stopped caring about LR (pre-subscription), it was observed that LR's performance was hard to predict — it behaved differently on hardware that was essentially the same. I have no ...
  • I bulk process and catalog in LR or C1, but most of my profit comes from what I do in PS.
  • I have the Nikon and it's a keeper. Can't say the same thing about the Tamrons I've owned. Out of the four I've tried I kept one , the 28-75 original version.
  • Replied in "Indefinitely"
    Yes, which is defined (in many cases) as bait and switch .
  • My QNAP has a one button backup to an external HD. There are also cloud solutions. Employ at least two backups and keep one off site.
  • If you delete files from your NAS without due diligence (running a file or folder compare), then you have an operations philosophy error. The NAS can and will store duplicates and versions (same ...
  • Not so much. Intel has released microcode updates * back to Sandy Bride processors. These updates can be applied via Windows update at the OS level (at every boot). Not as good as a BIOS update in ...
  • One Windows tool I would not trust is System Restore. The probability of it working is inversely proportional to the severity of the crisis. IOTW, the worse you need it the more likely it is to ...
  • Here's what's running in my rig, chosen by the system builder: G.SKILL Ares
