Samsung 830 and Crucial M4 are the most popular. Prices continue to drop and you can get a 128GB Samsung 830 for $100. 240GB for $210. I just bought an 830 and love it. It's the first SSD I've owned and I'll never use a standard HD again for the OS.

Tigerdirect has the 128GB for $90 after promo code.

What does packaging have to do with it? They're nearly indestructable.

Probably meant the model with the most extras.

The price isn't that great but here is an example of a Samsung 830 128GB ssd:

It includes:

promotion code that allows you to download the PC video game "Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier."

desktop installation kit containing a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch bracket, screws, SATA data cable, and SATA power cable.

full version of Norton Ghost 15.0 disk-cloning program

Samsung's SSD Magician software

Samsung 830 or crucial M4.

You can kind the 256 M4 under 200 on sale. The 830s been close to 200 to. The 128GB for 90 is a great feel.

Id avoid anything using sandforce controllers

Tom's Hardware usually has a "daily deals" article in the Latest News section on the home page. The daily deals are over at LogicBuy. LogicBuy also has a daily deals page just for drives. Here is the link:

Sales and lowest prices change daily. It pays to be patient and check every day until what you want is listed.
