So far, switching over to the SSD drive has been painless, with startup (and interestingly enough, application shut down) times sped up to noticeable, time-saving rates that add up. When we recently reverted back to our older hard drive using the old fashioned platter mechanism (we were running some diagnostics), we were reminded how much waiting around we'd have to endure that was erased with the migration to SSD drives. They're still prohibitively expensive as a primary drive for many people, including ourselves, but as a smaller boot drive or secondary storage device, just like Artur Bergman above, we can't say enough good things about SSDs.
