Recommended 120GB SSD?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Good afternoon! I'm upgrading my SSD and I'd like some advice on which one to buy.

I'm at about a $130 budget and I'm looking for a 120 gig SSD!

Any advice is appreciated!

Thanks,

Tanner

Just bought one of these, I'm very impressed. Good read/write speeds. And, within your budget,

Plextor M5S, only $95 and top-tier SSD.

Check those charts:

It perform on par with the Samsung 840 (non-pro) and only beaten by the flagships like Vertex 4, 840 Pro, Plextor M5 Pro. You will never notice the tiny difference through.

SanDisk isn't very good. Just google some reviews. My recommendation is a Samsung 840. The Basic is not that expensive.

that should get you the 120 GB Samsung pro.

It if you save a little more they keep having sales here and there for the 250 GB non pro version for $150. Which is much better IMO.
