Is this a good SSD? I need a new drive today and this is in stock at Best Buy.

PNY - CS1311 480GB Internal SATA III Solid State Drive

I am also looking at Crucial BX200 480GB SATA 2.5 Inch Internal Solid State Drive - CT480BX200SSD1, but this through Amazon, so I wouldn't have it right away.

Best Buy has a 960 GB for $211 (price match w/Amazon), so I was wondering of that is a good deal for that brand.

Thank you.

It seems to be an aggressively average SSD from the reviews I just read over. Described as the SSD you buy if it's at a good deal and you want to chuck it in any old pc to replace the HDD. It's faster than an HDD of course, but not as fast as other SSDs out there. By the looks of your sig rig, you may be looking for something a bit better, maybe take a look at the samsung 950 evos?

The crucial bx200 is also one of the slower SSD's in existence.

Both will do the job though ,and should feel quicker to respond than any HDD.

I have the 240GB 1311 and It blazes through 6gigs very fast, I got 530Mbs write and 575Mbs read and it's just as well as others and better than lots of the SSD's out there but beyond that it's no hare in the race. I do not think any of the top tier SSD's are worth their weight unless you edit photography and such. I think it's fantastic for the average user that does not do heavy computing.
