It hasn’t lived up to my expectations fully

I was assembling a mini-ITX computer for work and had a strong decision that even if the system is low-cost, I cannot do without SSD drive: I think the times of HDD are gone. I think that SDD drive has to run at least as a system drive. I have a SSD drive from Vertex on my main computer for work; it is really fast, I enjoyed the drive and the company. And for the second computer I’d decided to buy something simpler, I’d chosen a Kingston drive; it was 10-15% cheaper, even with same features as Vertex drive.

The setting up hadn’t had any problems; everything had found its position. During the working process I had noticed by eye (I hadn’t made any tests) that the system run slower on this drive than on Vertex’s drive, and it run much slower. The programs open slower, some working processes run slower. And these are clearly the processes that don’t require CPU’s or GPU’s work, these are simple processes that mostly depend on the reading and recording rates. There is a Western Digital HDD for data storing in this computer. So, the difference between speed rates is noticeable, but it is not as great as between usual SSDs and HDDs. The difference between speed rates of Vertex SSD and HDD is clearly noticeable, and it is not in the second computer. That’s why I am likely to blame a slow Kingston. However, the tests in the specialized forums show that there are no problems with speed rates of this Kingston SSD. However I’ve made my conclusions: this 15% economy doesn’t worth speed losses.
