What SSD should I get?


Recommended Posts

I'm getting a copy of windows 7 ultimate and I would like to get a good SSD to install 7 on.

Looking for somthing arround $110.

With arround 120 gigs

I'm looking for a mid range model like a Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/120G, or a Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2.

But I'm not sure what too look for on a SSD.

The board I'm using now is a Gigabyte EP45-Ud3P, it has sata II ports with a HD drive and xp on it and my board supports windows 7.

So I'm looking for some good suggestions or info on a SDD to get.

Thanks for any help I can get

Maybe this anandtech review will help you to choose.

For a strict OS usage, you shouldn't see any real world difference between Samsung 830, Crucial M4, Intel 520, Kingston HyperX 3K, or OCZ Vertex 4 as read/write data should be compressible but random and most of it 4k sized. Any ssd with more than 200MB/s 4k random write (with random data) will be very fast.

If you seek the fastest ssd, there is already a website keeping track of them (but the speed given are those of the manufacturers) and you'll need a PCI express solution then.
