Hi there,

I'm in the market for an SSD and I'm on a budget. I want to get one for a boot drive and to put my games on to load faster. This SSD is on sale for $115 on NCIX:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


1.) It is listed on newegg under "laptop accessories." I heard it doesn't matter, will it still work on a desktop?
2.) I heard the speed isn't as fast as other SSD's on the market, but the normal price is in the same range as other 128gb SSD's.
3.) Other OCZ products like the Vertex 3 have frequent BSOD issues and the reviews aren't that good, can that be said for all OCZ products like this one?

I originally wanted to get the Crucial M4 but it is too expensive for me. Unless it goes on sale soon I might have to get this one. What do you guys think?

Basically this seems like the only OCZ SSD that people aren't complaining about that much, I hope this is a good choice in a SSD!

M4 128 is $199, 10 bucks more, too expensive?

As I said earlier, the OCZ is on sale at NCIX for $115, $85 bucks more for a better chance mine won't be broken/better warranty most likely as well.

if you can get it for < $1 per gb, go for it.

Just don't put crucial data on it and you'll be fine, especially with a warranty.

Oh yea, I got a 1TB HDD for just that, its purely a backup drive for system files/games/personal info. I pretty much will copy all my contents on my ssd to my hdd.
