The Crucial m4 was my pick, and I was happy with it until I ran out of space! It's very reliable and has the Marvell controller, which handles large, uncompressed files better than the Sandforce controllers. The 128gb is probably the best size for OS and apps.

The bad thing is there's not a lot of selections on that site that are better than that. I can check other Estonia shops and see what I can come up with.

agree with that assessment as well. I wasn't feeling too good about the list until I saw the m4. also, don't confuse the Crucial v4 with the m4. the v4 is decidedly an inferior version.

The V4 is definitely inferior. I found a site with a much better selection: http://www.itshop.ee/lauaarvutid-komponendid/kovakettad...

Corsair GT 60GB for sure. Remember for your budget, you can only use this as a boot drive. And may be to use it to install some some software that require fastest HDD speed.

No the Force is not good. It uses Sandforce 2.0 which is known to have all kinds of stability issues and errors associated with it. Marvell SSDs don't have that problem.
