Default Re: anyone using Protools on an SSD?

I'm running an SSD on my tracking system for system and apps (2009 mac pro) but running 7200rpm western digital drives to record sessions.

Runs absolutely fine. Faster than my other identical system (without an SSD) but only for boot, application launch etc. Actual Pro Tools sessions run pretty much the same on both machines.

You mentioned eSATA? As no macs have this port are you running a Hackintosh or have you bought a PCIe eSATA card?

I'm running an Intel value SSD - only 40GB But it was cheap and loading apps flies!

When large SSDs come down in price I may try running a session from one! The new RAM disk cache feature in 10 might have made this idea obselete already!
