i'm looking for a fast reliable sata 3 SSD. i'm hoping to find one that has great performance on both sata2 and sata 3 systems as this one will be install on a sata2 board as boot drive.

i'm more comfortable with the name brand companies (i've had more better lucky with parts) like.. samsung, intel,sandisk (corsair,crucial,ocz i'm not to famaliar with)

sinse it's only for booting the OS i'm only looking for 120GB storage and a price range around $100 but max 150.

any suggestions are appreciated thanks

The Samsung 840 Pro is a very good SSD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I normally recommend Samsung. Among the brands you mentioned Intel is also worth considering.

I maintain the ssd database listed in the sticky at the very top of this forum section. Here is the link:

Scroll down to the brands you are interested and follow the links to technical reviews of specific models.

How would you compare the samsung to the ocz vertex 4 120gb SSD, the intel or sandisk models, or any of the other brands mentioned?

If you consider yourself a mainstream computer user, I would suggest you pick mainstream/value SSD. Check out this helpful link with which you can decide which SSD you really need: http://www.sata3ssd.com/the-best-value-ssds-for-mainstr...


If those are the mainstream options then i would assume i'm not. the only SSD i considered out of that selection was the Intel 330.

There will be audio recording software and hardware as well as gaming and video editing software on the pc (all on win 8). I'm looking for the best at a resonable price i guess you can say.
