New SSD

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
My old man is right now in the US so this is my chance to buy an SDD at decent prices, i think 250 gb is more than enough and i have a budget of 100 bucks. So far ive found the following SSDs:
Samsung eVO https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-850-EVO-2-5-Inch-MZ-75E250B/dp/B00OAJ412U/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1472582535&sr=1-1&keywords=ssd
And a kingston with more capacity which costs a bit more : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820242259
Which one would you recommend? im not space constricted but the idea is to have something that lasts for a very long time.
I Look forward to hearing from you

Crucial, it has 3D NAND which will give you twice the endurance then the other two.

ahh yea looking for a 480gb is a bit harder, id go with either the MX300 or the Plexor as they run virtually identically performance wise out of what you have listed

Ultra 2 is a relatively older drive being tested back in late 2014 but it is a ok performer

OCZ just avoid it. bad all around performance if i remember anandtechs review correctly.

PNY is a solid all around drive that doesnt do anything bad but doesnt do anything great either, just solid performance.

A-Data i actually have and use this drive and i like it. its a very budget oriented drive and for games and daily use its awesome, it nails its speeds and only chokes when you do file transfers over 10gb or so in 1 go as it burns through the fast cache and uses the memory directly which is much slower

Hynix one of the highest performing drives listed by far with performance that can match the Evo depending on the use.

Mushkin i actually cant find a review for this drive, but it seems ok, budget oriented.

Hope this helps.
