Anything to look for when buying a ssd?

#1emblem boyPosted 12/2/2013 5:19:17 AM
Anything specific? Thinking of getting one. Was going to look for a 1TB internal for around $50-60, but now im thinking ill just get an ssd to use with my current 250gig. I don't really save much stuff so I'm sure space capacity isn't a big issue for me which is why I'm just going to stick with the 250 I have.

For the ssd though, I'm thinking ill try to find a 120gig and the lowest price I'm seeing for that seems to be around 70. Is there anything species in speed or brand name that I should be on the lookout for? I'm noticing that they are 2.5". Will I need to buy some sort of enclosure if I use it in my desktop?

Because it's too slow?

I bought a local brand one, but when I plugged it in, it showed up as Samsung.

Right now there really isn't that much better than the Samsung EVO.

There's a newer model of this for about the same price?
