Which SSD should I buy?
Most of the SSD’s on the market are good and perform a lot better than the traditional HDD. Below you’ll find an overview of recommended SSD’s. Although most of them are great SSD’s but there are some that have a very good price/value.
We really like the Crucial M4 64GB or 128GB, it’s a fast SSD with SATA-600 bus connection and has a good price. If you’re low on budget then the cheapest SSD will be around 70 euros and 30GB (enough for Windows 7 or Snow Leopard). If you want a fast SSD, then we recommend Samsung 830 or Plextor. Ofcourse you’ll have to pay a bit more.
