    Looking at buying an SSD

    So I'm thinking of buy and SSD. I've got 3 options.

    Amazon.com: Kingston Digital HyperX FURY 120GB SSD SATA 3 2.5 Solid State Drive with Adapter (SHFS37A/120G): Computers & Accessories

    Amazon.com: SanDisk Extreme II 120GB SATA 6.0GB/s 2.5-Inch 7mm Height Solid State Drive (SSD) With Red Up To 550MB/s & Up To 91K IOPS- SDSSDXP-120G-G25: Computers & Accessories

    or Amazon.com: Kingston Digital 120GB SSDNow V300 SATA 3 2.5 (7mm height) with Adapter Solid State Drive 2.5-Inch SV300S37A/120G: Computers & Accessories


    I'm currently leaning towards the Kingston HperX since it has pretty good R&W speeds and is a decent price.

    Has anyone had experience with the SSd's I listed? Can suggest other SSD's. But they must be under $100, don't want to spend more than that.
    Oh hai der.

    SSD's (Solide State Drive's) have a faster Read and Write speed than normal HDD's (Hard Disk Drive). Meaning, you can copy files on and off an SSD at super fast speeds. For example, a HDD would boot Windows in about 30 seconds to 2mins (given your computer doesnt have much crap on it). An SSD can boot in less than 5 seconds. SSD's have no moving parts so you can be fairly rough with them compared to HDD's. HDD's have very fragile discs that if taken a hard enough knock, will shatter and be useless.
    Oh hai der.

    Ahh okay I see, but the tradeoff is less space and more expensive?

    Essentially, yes. But what you get is really fast speeds.

    Either the Hyper X or the Sandisk. I've used the Sandisk many times, and the speeds are pretty good.

    I got the Kingston V300. My friend has it and he says it's great. Plus it was a real good price. $73NZD and that's including shipping.

    I would just bite the bullet and get a PCIe SSD.
    1g/b read and write speeds, you won't need to upgrade your shit for a while.

    Ok, sweet as. I read somewhere that they can cause issues or something. Noticed anything out of the blue with yours?

    Yeehaw
    I've had 3 SSDs.

    Vertex: Trash tier ($47, 60 GB)
    Intel: GOAT ($120, 240 GB)
    Crucial: Meh ($70?, 120 GB)

    Intel has the best SSDs hands down. They're also the very few that have anti-corruption features in case of a power failure.

    v1.97 - Cutscenes/Quests, Friend List
    v1.98 - Classes, Necklace/Rings
