    My boot with the OEM install was pretty bad: 70 seconds.

    I've improved it to about 50 seconds but that's about all my HDD can provide.
    Hybrid Boot is still turned off.

    Still monitoring the ups and downs in SSD prices.

    I don't really ever turn my PC off, I do put in hibernate as my bloody motherboard can't sleep correctly. But last check it's like 15-17 seconds from BIOS to Start with KIS 2013 installed.

    On a PC I'm working on right now, its boot time is literally 11-15 seconds and takes usually 6 seconds to shut down. Damned impressive!
