I have a htpc / homeserver (apache2, mysql for some website testing) and I also use it as a htpc. My current setup is, it is in my bedroom, the OS is installed on a 2 TB drive, but at night the OS starts writing or reading some stuff from the disk. It is quite annoying as it does not spin down completely and makes noise, which irritates me :p.
I was thinking of putting the OS on a usb drive or an SSD. But what would be the best option? Is getting the SSD the best option?
I'd like some pro's and con's. :)
