  • Re: Anyone using an SSD to Run Logos 4 on a Windows Platform?

    Michael, like you I used to use another Bible program for quick look ups and searches rather than opening Logos. Since moving to Windows 7, my non-Logos Bible program does not work. Rather than upgrading that other program, I used the saved money to help pay for part of the SSD cost. I was expecting the SSD to make Logos very snappy. In reality it did

    Michael: Very good points. The money saved on not getting an SSD could buy quite a few books. Also, my SSD reports show that the speed up by switching to an SSD is not as dramatic as one might expect, so this may be helpful to others who might wish to save money by using a traditional hard drive. I agree with you that for a long working session when

    Just finished re-indexing after installing new books. The Logos icon in the tool tray estimated it would take 95 minutes, but it finished in 29 so indexing looks to be about 3 times faster. My CPU average load was about 25-30% so the bottle neck appears to still be the disk drive, but at least the SSD is a faster than what I had before.

    Hi Howard: I agree that one should not need to pay for the NIV again to use it on the iPhone. But I would not quickly assume Zondervan is the real source of the problem. Zondervan is not the copyright holder - the International Bible Society is. Several years ago, the Canadian Bible Society gave up selling a very low cost pocket version of the NIV NT

    Hi Bill: Thanks for pointing me to the advantage of 32-bit applications as noted by Bradley. I will keep that in mind for other software that I buy in the future. As for Logos 4, I don't think 32-bits is the limiting factor at least on my computer. After reading your post I shut my computer down completely and restarted (a cold boot rather than sleep

    Hi Thomas: I've just sent an email to Logos support asking for someone to check out this thread. Hopefully, we will get some clarity in a day or two. Brian

    Thomas: Thanks for the quick response. Based on your comments I paid more attention to the details of the individual CPU cores loads when starting Logos this morning. And to get a second perspective I had Logos do an exegetical study work up on a new chapter (just in case it had cached results from a previous chapter, or in case Windows had cached the

    While trying out Logos with my new SSD I found a strange thing. Logos seems to be using less than 1/2 of my computer's CPU capacity even after that hard drive bottleneck has been removed. I have run several exegetical studies of complete chapters and Windows Resource Monitor reports that the SSD drive will run at 3-8MB/sec for a second or so at the

    Hi. My recent experience upgrading to an SSD might help others to know what to expect. Before upgrading opening Logos 4 was painfully slow. It would take 1 to 2 minutes to load including recreating whatever passage study I had previously had open. It was so slow I frequently asked myself if I really needed to open it if I was curious about something

    Oh, on reflection, I think a modest extra fee might be a thing. After all Logos has a bit of extra work to convert the files and a bit more cost in terms of bandwidth when we download and a modest additional fee might help publishers more quickly warm up to the idea of ebooks being accessible on multiple devises by the same user. I am thinking that

    I am also of the opinion that a user should only pay a publisher *once* and be able to access the ebook on whatever devise the person uses. After all the publisher is already getting extra sales from ebooks compared to a paper book. With a paper book, I can buy one and my friend can buy another and then we can trade. One paper book means more than one
