Well, its come to the point where this thread should simply be renamed: SSD vs HDD vs HHD drive comparison.

To throw my two bits into the pot, I would like to point out that an SSD could theoretically be fully worn through in about a month, however regular use does not allow for this kind of wear. You would have to write to the whole drive approximately 10 thousand times in order to wear out most MTBF estimates for a single block. Otherwise, the lifespan of the disk is often in the range of 4+ years with adequate wear leveling.

Simply put, I don't think that an SSD is any less reliable than a conventional hard disk for gaming. But for long term storage, such as videos, music, pictures, and documents should be kept on a HDD. SSD can lose block integrity from long term storage without continued refresh.

Read this thread if you have not already!

Home users...honestly.

Just man up, buy a NAS as the first step, and then install your games on that over 10GBe before branching out in to a full fibre supported SAN.

i never saw the cost/capacity ratio worth a game taking that wee bit quicker to load to be worth the money when i can get 2Tb hds for under £100 now.

though i do always love these stories that come out when some new DRM starts to prove to be affective

Except it's not effective. Denuvo has been cracked. Just like Ubi's notorious protection for Assassin's Creed 2 before, and every other DRM prior to that. The time and resources put into DRM would be better spent elsewhere. All a new protection scheme is to hackers is a new puzzle to solve. Those of us who like to buy games, will do so as we always have. Those who only want free will just move on till the game is cracked or find something else.

For my money, I tend to mainly buy from GOG as they have everything right - no DRM, just installers and bin files. Unfortunately I had to go Origin with this one, but it's a worthy purchase. Also, at least Origin offers refunds if the game doesn't work or you just don't like it. Can't say that for STEAM.

Crackers... the term is crackers not hackers.
