OCZ ARC 100 – 240GB SSD Review

TodayI will be reviewing the OCZ ARC 100 -240GB SSD. The price of SSD’s when they first came out where extremely high and very few people had the chance to experience the extreme capabilities of a SSD. The price point made upgrading to a SSD hard to justify. Now, for some time, SSD’s have become very affordable and the price per GB has become more reasonable. If you have yet to experience a SSD, let me be the first to tell you GO GET ONE CAUSE YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE MISSING! The responsiveness is amazing, no spinning sound, no clicking, no grinding noises, the list goes on. The biggest drawback of a new hard drive was having to start all over with a fresh install of windows, while that may be the preferred way, You can now easily clone your current drive and that is usually a flawless operation. Lets continue on with review and find out more about the OCZ ARC 100 SSD!
