I've been without one for awhile but w/black friday sales seems like a good time to buy.

I was looking at these two:

And wondering which you'd say is a better deal. I feel like I don't need anything crazy fast, an SSD alone is going to feel like huge upgrade. So size:money is my main consideration. However if one is way more quiet/efficient etc. those sort of things I'd factor in as well.

I dunno how to judge these things.

The 1TB one is very tempting just to have most of my stuff on it w/out worrying about space

From the ones you linked I would go with the Intel. $200 for 500GB of quality SSD is damn good value. Typically $0.50/GB is outstanding.. you're getting Intel for less than that which is awesome. I'd order that tonight if I were you.


Typically my recommendations currently are like this:

Intel & Crucial for lifespan

Samsung Pro for speed

Samsung Evo is a good value/balance

I prefer combat because my dong is large and I will face the enemy like a man rather than sprint over to a pillar for a re after my opener is up.


sorry, I don't speak duellist

I would go for a 3D V-NAND drive like the samsung 850 pro series because it's a very fast and durable drive.

Samsung 3D V-NAND technology is two times as durable as MLC drives. Samsung is so confident in this tech that the 850 pro series comes with a 10y warranty.

Crucial MX100 is a good value drive but less durable because it uses mlc.
