Hey TomsHardware! So with you're help, I've built a fantastic computer. The only thing left is a solid state drive around 120GB. I had my eye on a really good looking Sandisk Extreme 120GB for 79.00, but when I woke up today to buy it it was priced at 110. I don't need the SSD for long transfers just as much as snappy response time, so from what I understand I don't need the fastest one possible (nor would it make much of a difference.) Mostly I'm just wanting to make sure I get a good reliable brand, and a good drive for the money. Wanting to spend a little less than $100, anyone have any recommendations?
I'm reluctant to pick one based on mail in rebate prices...from what I've heard those take ages, but I will definitely consider this one. I see a lot of recommendations of the Samsung 830, citing controller differences--can anyone elaborate on these? Some people say sandisk controllers are horrible, some say otherwise...if the 830 is proven to be a very high quality SSD I don't mind spending $100 on the drive.
