Please Help 256GB SSD Recommendations Need Soon

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I would like to know whats the biggest bang per buck when it comes to 256GB SSDs.

I bought this. Lightning Deal for 329 free ship no tax. I might cancel the order depending what you guys say lol.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003WAN5SY/ref=oh_o00_s00_i00_details



I found out this SSD below for 50 bucks more and its not even a Lightning Deal.

http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-256GB-SSD-SATA-CT256M4SSD2/dp/tech-data/B004W2JL2A/ref=de_a_smtd

Is that a better deal than the C300?



Between these drives which would you guys go with, or list some you recommend pls, would be much appreciated.

This one is M4 450ish after tax I think.

This is also an M4 400ish after tax prob.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148443

and then theres this one which I bought for 329 and why in the world does it retail for so much more than the M4?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148363


Which 256GB SSD would you guys choose?


Have you guys noticed any differences realtime between SATA II/III SSDs and 350MB/s vs 550MB/s?

Thanks.

I've been told that triple layer cell SSD's are going to come out fairly soon. You may want to wait if you can to either snag the new ones, or the ones you are currently looking at for much lower prices.

Grab the cheapest one, or wait like the poster above said, but I wouldn't lol the speed is incredible form a mech drive to any SSD you get, the difference b/w them is minimal.

M4 is absolutly the best if you want a 256GB drive, they're $365 last time I checked, everything else is $400+. And the M4 is a very competitive drive.
