I am in the final stage of my HTPC build and was seeking advice for my SSD.
This SSD will only be used for the operating system & main programs
I also have 4tb of storage for tv recordings.
This system will only be used for watching / recording live tv, streaming to another tv via Ceton tuner, and watching Hulu & Netflix. I am planning on cutting the commercials out of the recorded programs if that counts as "video editing" but no gaming or photo editing / design.
I am looking to spend under $150 and see a lot of options from Crucial and OCZ for a Sata 3 60gb.
For what it's worth, I run SSD's in both my HTPCs. One is the Crucial M4 and one is an el cheapo Kinston SSDNow. Both perform very well and are lightyears better than a platter drive, even the cheap Toshiba controller SSDNow that everybody hates.
