So my Dad's SSD recently broke (It was some sort of OCZ) and he lost a great deal of his work that was stored on it, he has tried lots of retrieval sites and has so far had no results (but that is for a different thread).
This leads me to my question, he asked me what sort of SSD he should buy. I recommended an M4 of any type, but they are not on sale for that much so me, being the noob I am, decided to ask the community a question:
What sort of SSD should my Dad buy?
Important Info: -He works as an IT Architect and he makes lots of powerpoint presentations too (hope that helps a bit) -He travels a lot, so he needs something that is durable and will not break if the laptop falls a few times. -He can buy from the US or Canada, but nowhere else. -It would help considerably if it had fast free shipping but that is not very important.
-One big need is that the SSD be 256 gb but he will settle for 180 if that proves a better deal. -He requires that it be quite fast (15 second reboot hopefully) -Reliable, something that will not just break after a year or even two. -A good price. As I said, he recently lost one SSD and some priceless information, so his budget for this is not super high.
~It would be nice to get replies ASAP as he leaves for work tomorrow and he won't be back for a week.
