    Hsuyaa reacted to Kilrah in Please help me! Windows on New SSD keeps corrupting!   
    Just use it as a secondary to store non-essential data i.e. games...
    Don't sell it, would be a dick move knowing it doesn't work properly, don't screw the next poor guy.

    Yes, sell it, and get a cheap decent SSD like Kingston A400 or Sanddisk Plus.

    No, don't try to spread windows over other drives, that won't help.
    Either sell it on craigslist or save up for a proper SSD.

    Hsuyaa got a reaction from paddy-stone in Newbie on a budget wanting to buy an SSD   
    oh yeah i had a budget of Rs3000 but i tried to stretch. It was just a bit more for a much better ssd so i got it. Also i got it on amazon. Initially i wanted to only spend under Rs3000 but after doing research + getting suggestions from you guys, i decided to get that one.

    I don't know exactly, but it differs per manufacturer and product lines. It should be significantly lower than a mech drive though because of no moving parts to fail, they're more likely to fail because of the controller board IIRC.
    If you had more of a budget I would suggest to only have the OS on the SSD, and keep files on a mech drive/USB so that if the worst were to happen and the SSD does fail, then you won't lose your files at the same time.
    But of course, then you'd have the problem of what if the mech drive failed.... this is why it's ideally better to have important files backed up in at least 2 or 3 places, to lessen the chances of a drive failure to make you lose all your important files. It's difficult I know, especially if you're on a budget. But that's the only way of being more sure of not losing your files to some kind of failure.
    Failures can happen across many pieces of hardware, and not just the cheaper ones, many expensive drives and other hardware can fail also.
     
    Bear in mind one thing.... people are more likely to leave a review of a hardware failing, than ones that are happy with their purchase IMO. So it's more important to see reviews from reputable sources than from people reviewing their purchases. I will say also that out of the number that are sold, to how many drives fail, are usually pretty small in comparison, especially with SSDs. I still have a couple os Samsun 830 drives from 8 years ago that are still going strong... they aren't in my PCs any more as they are slow in comparison to today's SSDs, but they are used still (they are much slower than the drives you are looking at buying for example).

    Yes,  3GB/s is SATA 2.
     
    At SATA 2, you might as well go with the su650 from Adata... it might even max out the SATA 2 bandwidth of 375MB/s. It'll certainly be way faster than a mech drive that's for sure.

    Hello guys 😊, A fellow PC  user here. Today morning when i woke up, i was greeted with a surprise. My PC wont boot into windows saying the windows boot is corrupt. After 30 minutes of troubleshooting i came to the realization that my 8 year old snail 512 GB HDD had finally given up at trying to survive. So i decided, its finally time to give the old geezer a burial and say hello to a brand new Solid state drive. But i have a very limited knowledge about what SSD i should go for. 
               I am from India and on kind of a tight budget. I can spend around Rs3000 ($40) to get one. I shortlisted a few on amazon.in but the reviews of a few talking about drive failure kinda scared me. So here i am hoping someone could list up some good budget drives for me to buy. I am not looking for a 512GB SSD, a 240 gig one will be enough. Was looking at these before i thought its better to ask the pros.

    With a browser like Firefox or Chrome, you can open Developer Tools  (in Firefox , right click on an empty space on the page and select Inspect, in chrome it's probably a menu option)
    There's a "Network" section somewhere, and with that window open, hit the reload button and you'll see everything downloaded to create the page shown there.
    When it's done you can filter to show only images,then sort by domain and you can hover mouse over the links to see image preview and you'll find the pictures there...
    Here's in Firefox's developer tool .. as i said, i opened this by clicking inspect, i hit the trash icon on top left corner to clear list, then I hit reload in browser to reload everything in Firefox and waited until page stopped loading. 
    Then, I clicked on "Images" (see above Cause and Type columns) and then hit the domain column to sort by source of images, because all images that belong to the site are served by that vignette.wikia.nocookie.net server ...
    So as you can see in the picture, the url is

    Hsuyaa reacted to martward in Gtx 1060 6 gb for 80 pounds   
    If it is a scam then it's very easy to fake that though. Basically if you have 80 to blow and won't miss it that much if it turns out to be fake then go for it. If losing 80 pounds is actually a problem I wouldn't recommend it.

    Well a 1060 for 80 quid sounds a bit suspicious to me. I personally wouldn't chance it if he is to send it to you instead of you picking it up and testing it before paying him.

    Not that I know of. Even if there was, I would not recommend anything utilities provided outside of the manufacturer for this type of work. Your BIOS is essentially the lifeblood of your board. Any screw ups from a third party application when flashing the BIOS could potentially brick the board for good. I say for good as it's unlikely at this point ASUS will even entertain a BIOS flash repair request for that board at your own cost.

    You don't need to update the BIOS.

    It will have the features / support of the older BIOS, plus more.
