I have a 120gb ssd and the storage space goes fast. I have heard great reviews on the Samsung 840. But in my opinion the difference from one ssd to another as far as speed goes in negligible. If your looking for a really good deal or " best bang for the buck" look at this deal http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233472 otherwise get the Samsung 840 Series 250gb. I can vouch for the corsair gt refurb as i have 2 of them. Very fast

Only 30 days warranty so I wouldn't recommend the refurb. From the choices and pricepoints given, the Intel 330/335 and Samsung 840s have my vote. Definitely go for the 240-256GB models if your budget allows. Assuming you live in the US, the Samsung 840 250GB goes on sale for $140-160 every couple of weeks or so.

Hi Guys!

Based on your answers. I check the products warranty here. Sadly some just have 1 year warranty. Availability is also an issue.

Chosen these SSDs
Crucial M4 - 2 yrs warranty
Intel 330/335- Standard warranty (doesnt know if they are OEM or Boxed yet)
Plextor Pro Extreme- 1 yr warranty
Samsung Pro/Non-Pro - 1 Yr warranty

I will give my vote for crucial, the Samsung looks pretty sweet I admit,but
I have been using crucial for a long time and still have had no probs with any of them.
But I expect that since I also have used crucial ram for years and same thing, ROCK SOLID.
