SSD for a parent

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I wanna get my parent's PC to SSD. Third HDD to dump in 4 years and I want a nice performance jump

Hopefully under $100... Recommendations? Doesn't need to be bleeding fast - just faster than HDD in real-world and enough space (50+GB)

I just bought a 64GB SSD from Micro Center yesterday for $99.99. It was their own store brand.

Yea, that will be your best bet for your parents. They are pretty fast..extremely fast compared to HDD so they will tell a difference for sure. If you want to be really nice go to superbiiz.com and get them a Crucial C300. They are $20 or so more, but they are blazing fast. It would be like making cookies, but they would be done in one min instead of 12.
Ahh!
