katsuo I have 3 WD Blue 1 TB and they are faster than Black in most cases. When they were a thing. I don’t know about the newer models. Even if the newer models are faster than my older Blues, I will never ever ever ever install OS on a HDD Good for my massive Steam library and backups.
Congratulations on the upgrade! When I won a place in the #AMDTestdrive program a few years back it was my first SSD and when I got all the stuff in I thought they had forgotten to put the SSD in it was so small I thought it was something else. That was the first PC I have ever had my hands in and it was all free to keep.
Jokes aside SSDs are brilliant. OS aside the biggest difference I saw was in loading times for Battlefield 4 when I played that. I remember when I had it on a HDD it would take like 2 min and I’d be one of the last in the server, then with SSD was always 1st five and would be in before the match timer started lol.
