Finally... how about the WD green? Any feedback on this one?
SSDs are pretty reliable. Their prices are at all-time lows. Theyre fast and..Well. Thats all you need to know
For the rewrites..I have no knowledge on that. A lot of people do a SSD+HDD combo. Set-up the SSD as OS drive and SOME applications on the SSD while the main grouping of info is on the HDD.
Some good SSDs are Samsung 830s, Crucial M4 series, and Intel series SSDs ( Though intel SSDs cost a bit more depending on the location\store)
WD Green drives are decent too, I believe.
