Looking for SSD

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello SSD connoisseur,

I'm looking for a SSD, maybe two. But i have no clue which one to compare with which one, many brand, many models.
So here i am, asking for input/advice/opinion/suggestion.

My criteria is rather simple, 120gb, between 100 and 140$ and that's about it.
I would like it black but it doesn't really matter anyway.

It has to be really fast as i'm buying them for that only purpose, i guess every SSD are fast but i figured i could still note it.
I would like to buy the latest good products.

I heard Corsair is pretty good, this is what i was looking for initially, but again there's a lot of models.

So if you know enough about SSD and you can suggest and help me choose one i would be extremely thankful.

Thank you very much for reading me, and also huge thanks for your time/answers.


Edit: just found Sean's SSD Buyers Guide & Information Thread

I will read that, but i'm still curious to see people opinion!

You just missed the sale where this drive was about $75. It's one of the best, and even at the current price it's hard to deny its value.

Seems to still be a good price, so you would suggest this one?

Make sure you get the Samsung 840 PRO if not you would be better off buying Samsung 830.
