    samsung evo 120GB is a good starting point + hdd
  2. Cheap, as in how cheap?

    Size also matters.

    I may be purchasing the Evo 120.. rather 2.

    I have heard that Kingston pulled some part swapping with their SSD after reviews so their out (sadly)
  9. I only recommend the V300 as the cheapest alternative to my customers that really want an SSD but can barely fit one in their budget.
