Which SSD to get during the deal days?

Recommended Posts

Alright I am looking to nab myself a SSD during these deal days I think 120gb would be just fine. I was thinking a Corsair but is there any other ones worth looking at that yall have seen? I did notice the OCZ Agility 3 on sale for 120 after rebate which seems to be a good price. Any opinions on brands or anything? Anyone seen any deals?

I seriously was just about to make a thread about this. I am wondering the same right now. I was looking at newegg but I haven't seen anything worth buying, maybe they will get better on Friday?

I saw some interesting deals in the microcenter black friday ad, but the mail-in rebates killed it for me. Seems like everybody's going that route this year...

Is the 120gb agility 3 not a good deal at $120?

I've got a 60GB Agility 3 and it is definitely worth the money. It takes me around 45 seconds to get into Windows and be able to use apps etc.

 

I can only say that the 120GB would be better, defs got my vote :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Basically if the brand makes good RAM then you should be okay. OCZ, Kingston, Corsair, Patriot and Crucial all top the list for quality SSDs.

I would include Intel in the list for quality even though their drives are a bit pricy. The SSD toolbox is definitely a plus.

Intel, Crucial, Corsair, OCZ are all good brands.

 

Although if you are looking for the most reliable, you should look forward Intel, I think.

Crucial M4's, Kingston HyperX and Intel 510 SSDs have good performance with minimal errors compared to other products

Mushkin is another great company. They aren't a well know, but they seem to make a better quality product than OCZ in my mind. I have purchased 4 OCZ drives. Three of them failed. I bought a mushkin drive (I have mushkin ram, so the comment about how if the company makes good ram they make a good SSD was my logic too) and it is running strong.

 

I would be very picky about which corsair SSD you get because a lot of them still run of the 2200 controller where as the rest of the companies have moved on to 2281. The only difference is that the 2281 chips are supposed to be a bit more stable. However in my experience it just means that the drive will fail differently :lol: .
