Two good deals to choose from

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'll try to be to the point.

Should I get a Corsair 128gb SATA 3 SSD for $260 or a Crucial C300 128gb SATA 3 SSD for $200?

Thanks for any opinions

The numbers are all in favor of the Corsair one on newegg.com though.

If this is the SSD from corsair you're getting I would.

I also wouldn't mind know where you're getting them for roughly ~80$ off each.

oh your right(those where for sata 3)

But the numbers are so close I wouldn't think the price premium is worth it.

Just my opinion

Thanks for the inputs all. I ended up grabbing the Corsair one (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...E16820233154); it's worth the $60 to have the Corsair logo in my opinion. I tend to impulsively buy stuff quite often (ie. 'upgrading' from a 120gb RevoDrive to the Corsair).
