Right - I'm thinking about taking the plunge and buying an SSD for my desktop while Computer Lounge have a 7% discount code floating around for New Years. I'm looking at using it as my primary/boot drive. The SSD will just need to house Win8, plus my programs and games. For data (docs, videos, pictures, etc) I'll either use my existing 1TB WD Caviar Black or my NAS (when I get it up and running smoothly). My current OS + Programs use up about 80GB, so I think an SSD of 120GB+ should be plenty.
I've had a look at the offerings from Computer Lounge, and I"m drawn to the Intel 330 series, or the Samsung 840 series (120Gb for $149) OCZ looks nice, but I'm not sure whether the price premium is justified. I only have SATA2 on my motherboard, so SATA3 isn't necessary.
Does anyone have a recommendation to make, or a warning to offer, about any of the above drives?
