But yes, that is the best alternative. There is nothing better than a clean install.

It's just so much work.
I believe that there's actually a bit more to it than just "clean install is the best". IIRC there's something about the way a clone from a HDD is put onto an SSD that makes it perform like crap. (Hoping our resident storage guru AkG chimes in to either clarify what the issue is, or conversely to tell me that I haven't got a clue..... ;) ).
