Hey,

I'm looking at SSD's that I could use just as a boot drive, and have narrowed it down to the A-Data XPG SX900 64GB 2.5" Solid State Disk (around $70 USD) and the Samsung 840 Pro Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk (closer to $140 USD), but I am not sure if it would be worth spending the extra money or not.

I don't really need the extra space, but I want to know if there would be a substantial enough speed difference to make getting the Pro worth it or not, or if a regular 840 would be better for what I want/need given that it is in-between the prices of the other two here.

Thanks in advance guys!

I have an 80gb ssd for Windows 8. The OS uses about 40gb and, try as I might I CANNOT stop the drive filling with rubbish after 6months or so. There is so much data that dumps itself on the c drive that you cannot reasonably stop. Go for the bigger drive, in fact I'm swapping mine out this week for a 250gb and allowing a few key programes, PS / Lightroom etc, to install on the SSD.
