SSD under $150

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What would be the best SSD under $150? I'm looking for one to get with the $25 off $100 coupon from Newegg but I'm not really up to date on SSD's.

I was looking at the Vertex 2 60gb until I heard about them being replaced with lower performing 25nm versions. Now I have no idea what to get or if I should just wait.

The Crucial C300 is a solid performer from what I've read:

Corsair Force 60.

Vertex 2 is still a solid performer.

I was looking at either that or the G.Skill Phoenix Pro. Both use the same controller as the Vertex 2 I believe? So it's just down to brand preference. The 25nm Vertex doesn't seem worth it for only $10 cheaper.

I was also looking at the C300 but it doesn't seem worth it without SATA 3? I could be wrong though.

All are pretty much the same price and I haven't really heard anything good/bad about either companies so I'm not sure.
