If you are concerned about your SSD lasting more than 4PB in writes just get a 256GB Samsung 830.

Buy one on sale. Your SATA bandwidth doesn't matter.

No problem. They do look impressive. thumb.gif

I like to buy quality too. But, sometimes it is so hard to choose. But like Sean said earlier, SATAII vs. SATAIII does't really matter. You won't notice it. Just stay away from Asynchronous. Get synchronous or toggle. Stay in the Samsung 830 - Crucial M4 range. It looks like Corsair put out the neutron to compete with those lines. I will admit they are nice. I may look into them.

Haha. Yep. Check rebate policy though. Some are strict and only allow one per person per household.
