    Fastest Charger Available?

    It's a well-known fact that the faster you charge batteries, the more energy is wasted (mostly in the form of heat), meaning that less is actually absorbed by the electrolyte. Also, the extra heat generated by charging too fast is what kills the battery.

    I feel I can only use SSDs on their own because I have a backup solution.

    The datacenter of your backup service still uses them.

    "High relative humidity causes disk failures largely due to controller/adapter malfunction."

    I imagine this applies to SSD as well as HDD.

    I do. My system partitions are on SSDs, but I store all my goodies on HDDs. The lone exception is my laptop where everything is on SSD.

    On one desktop I have Windows 10RTM on a SSD and Windows 10 Preview on a HDD. On the other Desktop I have Windows 10RTM on a SSD. Then I have two laptops running Windows 10 RTM. One has a SSD and the other still has a HDD. I use HDDs for data and storage.

    I'm a bit worried about the high humidity. My machine gets very dusty so I hose it down about once a month. I wonder if this will shorten the life of the disks?

    So you use hard drives.. WD reds are hard drives. You just lied to us *Smile

    I know for a fact that high heat does kill hard drives... I've seen it in poorly ventilated PC's with monster video cards over and over again. The humidity is fine because it's in an air conditioned room.

    This study is about data centers, which generally have good ventilation, but they're not using air conditioned air, so it's probably a bad idea to draw conclusions about other environments.
