How many other cheapskates are still using just HDD'S in their systems with plans to upgrade at least the os drive to an ass 'someday'

My laptop has a 1tb 5400rpm
My desktop has
A 500gb 7200 rpm OS drive
A 3tb 5400 rpm 'everything' drive and
A 1tb 5400 rpm 'testing' drive for VM's or programs I'm just toying with

    2.5 wd blue 1tb took 4 years to die
    2.5 wd black 1tb LUKS took 2.5 yeas to die
    I don't trust hdds anymore.

    I know HDD and SSD but never heard of an ass as a storage 🤔

    By the way I have a 7400rpm HDD and works good with Linux VMS , of course running VM on SSD is much faster

    @gitpush that was a typo. And devrant won't let me fix 5 min after posting. 😭

    @jester5537 it's one awkward funny typo hoping no one tries to apply it in real life lol

    @gitpush might be entertaining. Whenever something goes wrong I can just slap that ass ;)

    Why are you doing this.

    @sqlkid wired mice are better in almost every way. And it depends on which celeron is offered. I would take an HDD over a 600 MHz celeron.

    I was using 5400rpm HDD in my laptop falfmore than 2 years. It was okay once everything was up and running. But I definitely wouldn't go back... Startup went from almost 2 minutes to just about 30 seconds with BIOS and prompt to enter HDD password.

    Also with classic HDDs the position of partition matters. If you are dual-booting and make your Windows partition first, it will be much faster than the second one with Linux for example. I made this mistake and now my HDD speed on Linux is almost half of the speed on Windows - 210MB/s vs 130MB/s

    My ass drive is too bloated and full of shit.

    @ultimaterage you got all those NSFW files stored in your ass that's why

    I got a 1TB WD HDD 5400RPM in my desktop because it's not loud. 10 years old and doing well (both the HDD and the desktop). System startup is slow, but once stuff is loaded, 16GB or RAM will cache everything anyway, so what.

    Just had a look and my laptop runs a 512GB SSD @ 7200 rpm

    @JFK422 that must have looked incredible

    I bet your mum's 20 gigaton ass runs @ 7200 rpm too. That must look amazing.

    I transformed a 1TB external Samsung T3 SSD into an internal one by drilling the case down, extracting it and getting a converter for SATA. The thing made my 10 year old PC with I7 be faster than a rocket. Just in case you don't know, most external SSD's are just a board with a converter for USB-C or whatever output is listed so is not that hard to repurpose it ;)
