Which SSD to get

Well figure I'd drop ~$100 on an ssd now that they're cheap and I can.

Looking at these two right now:

Also thinking about saving a bit and getting a 120 rather than a 240, but may as well go 240.


Opinions?

Well, definitely not a Kingston.
I don't know anything about PNY drives.
I suggest you take a look at the Crucial MX100. Of course there's always the Samsung 840 EVO, but if you're trying to save money, the Crucial will be cheaper.

So looks like either the MX100 or 840 evo.

Looks like the evo is better in every way besides the mx100's price:gig ratio.

Go for the Crucial because it's cheaper and it's MLC.

Kingston is fine. Been using the same one for 3 years now.

Kingstone and PNY just recently have been found to switch the type of flash memory in their drives for a slower memory, without making any indication about it on their boxes or specs.

The first drives they send to reviewers were using a faster memory, the first batches of the drives had the fast memory and all the reviews and comments you find online about the drives are for that first batch, so people buys the drives based on those first reviews. Now people who bought them are complaining about the poor performance the drives have.

Actually most people can't tell the difference unless you are one of the people who benchmark.
