I understand that SSD or hybrid SSD is faster than traditional HD. I would like to know how much faster. If I want to buy one, what numbers I should pay attention to? Anyone can compare about the loading time of the following task between HD, hybrid SSD and SSD (approximate number should be good enough): 1) load windows 7 OS 2) load a heavy application like photoshop or diablo3 3) copy/move a large file more than 1Gb within the same drive 4) copy/move a folder of thousands small files within the same drive Also, I heard about the sleep problem of SSD. Does anyone have experience that?
Thanks so much!

a hybyrd ?? I thought they were all electric I didnt know they made them gas and electric powered ..
any how what ever you hear SDD is great in small doses and in use where you dont have to do a lot of re writing over writing and deleteing for uses like to get as a OS drive :)
they are getting better with time but not really ready for heavy prime time use , this is why most computers you buy with SDD also have a larger HDD and the sdd is usally just a boot drive ..

if u are concerned about prices wait a bit, the tech news is ssd prices are going to slash down, otherwise what i would have done is installed ssd for os and hdd for data, but ssd is clearly the future of pc hardware.
p.s. i agree with user jadtechnic that ssd technology at present is not ready for primetime and def its improving and yes its fast
