i've got 90$ and i want to buy a 120GB SSD to install the W7 OS on it, i was bouncing on newegg between few ssd's but few of them have bad reviews saying that they die in less then 3 months and i really need it to be reliable. i chose these Samsung 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW - 90$, Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A4K5 - 90$, Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A401 - 80$, Crucial MX100 CT128MX100SSD1 - 75$, Corsair Force LS Series CSSD-F120GBLS - 90$. intel and crucial didnt have any negative reliability reviews but i dont know anything about ssd's so i need help choosing the most reliable and fast ssd in these options, or in this price range. thanks earlier.

yeah but i don't want it to die in 2 months after i buy it even if it has outstanding performance it should have reliability too. so i should go for the intel 530?

I normally recommend Samsung solid state drives. They perform extremely well and have a proven track record. SanDisk and Crucial are also worth considering. I used to recommend Intel but their ssd's are expensive.

I maintain the ssd database listed in a sticky at the very top of this forum section. Here is the link"
