The advent of SSD drives has made the decision of whether to upgrade or not a painful one, as the same price you pay for a single 256GB SSD drive would allow you to buy 3 2TB HDDs for storage. On the other hand the increased performance of the SSD drives does provide an advantage over the traditional HDD. What the HDDBOOST allows you to do is buy a inexpensive drive like the ADATA 32GB or an Intel 40GB one and improve overall drive performance without spending the extra cash that buying a larger SSD drive would entail. It also allows you to keep your OS install without losing your programs when you use a new SSD drive. For these reasons the SilverStone HDDBOOST deserves a long look at when buying a new SSD drive especially for those budget-conscious people that need the speed without wanting to spend the huge amount of money a large SSD drive will cost. The HDDBOOST costs $49 and is great addition to the lineup for SilverStone and a good choice for the upgrade that wants more performance without the heavy cost of a large SSD drive.
