I'm thinking of upgrading to an 830 series SSD from Samsung, either 256GB or 512 GB. Right now, my Sony Vaio VPCS132GXB has a 320 GB cheap Hitachi HDD that was swapped out from the original Toshiba HDD.
Although I feel I'm still a novice, I have been using CCleaner and System Mechanic software to turn off unwanted programs during startup, since Media Player was the main cause of error messages and unresponsive behaviour in my pc. Bootup time has improved significantly, and this was from Sony's advice, tech friend's advice and my own personal usage.
I know certain changes have to be used after installing SSD; defragmentation is a big NO, but I wonder, with System Mechanic's software, whether or not I can still make my pc run better and smoother, and increase its performance with System Mechanic's software enhancements. It does have enchancements to help with SSD's, but I wonder whether or not it will recognize a newly installed SSD from the original HHD/
