Specs are in sig. I'm seriously considering it, I just don't know what the hell to choose from. I want a 128GB one at least, but what are the best brand names/models? I'm looking for:

1. Reliability (I want it to last for at least a few years)
2. Performance
3. Cost (Hoping to spend around $100 but could go higher)

Thanks.

Crucial M4 is pretty much exactly what you want.

Even though the game runs in 720p, it produces another 480p stream for the New Controller. That's like 1200p!

The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs

I have it running in my computer and it's insanely fast coupled with the fact that's it up there as one of the most reliable SSD's

the 128GB has a speed increase over the 64GB, so do get the 128

I'm running a Samsung 830 right now, but the Crucial M4 is still really fast to the point where you probably wouldn't even notice the difference.

Even though they are really lite (75g or 2.64oz) and with the price of gold as it is ($1560.50/oz) its weight in gold would be ~$4120 I wouldn't say it is worth its weight in gold.

Oh god there's not enough liquor and therapy in the world to undue that.

facepalm on that second comment

but anyway, sounds like the Crucial M4 is the best option right now? I didn't want to drop an extra $25 but if it means reliability than I suppose I have to.
