Hi everyone..... i'm about to add my system a 60 GB capacity of SSD to my system probably for OS and some small games that can fit on it ....

i don't need a 120 GB of SSD for storage because i have already the 1 TB WD black and for me it performs very well and fast loading times also on games....

i would like to ask which of those brand i mentioned above will perform much better(the recent available on my place here in KSA) ...

Hope people have experience with those SSD could share there experience to help me to decide of of those SSD to choose ...

Help appreciated ...

830, but that's only because I have one

They are very reliable and fast even compared to the newer SSDs, I've had mine for about 6 months and haven't had a single problem with it.

Intel has it's own controller in the 320 (source) and I think so do Samsung.
The 520 is faster than the 320 and is better than the 840 non pro (uses cheaper NANDs).
If you can go for the 840pro, that would be great. Otherwise 830, 520, 320 in that order.

My bad, I meant the 330. but can only find a link to the 335. (haven't slept since last night)
I'd go for the Samsung 840pro or the 830. Only reason I got the Force GT is because I couldn't find the Sasmung where I live (Riyadh).

same availability of SSD before but i waited for the SAMSUNG to arrive..but before that when i go to different shops in AL DOSSARY towers (here in al khobar) i saw the the intel 330 120 GB that cost 480SR and the intel 330 180 GB that cost 580SR....(not in softland....nearby store of softland) so i start saving money to take the intel 330 180 GB (only 100SR different from 120 GB) ... but yesterday when i check the website of softland... the most awaited SSD that i dream of already arrived

... so im split also with the decision about prices of this SSD according to price and perforamance http://www.softland.com.sa/index.php?route=product/category&path=33_71 ...
