    SSD Drive recommendation

    The title says it all. I am in the market of getting a 256GB SSD drive for my ASUS G75VW.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Get a OCZ Vertex 4.

    For a cheaper price try another brand, I'm not sure which one since there's many. But I am certain this one is the best.

    performance: samsung 840 pro; plextor m5p; older but still good: intel 520; ocz vertex 4; samsung 830; crucial m4.

    where i'm from ocz vertex 4 is the best buy.

    If you can find a good deal on an m4 or an 840 i highly recommend it. I picked up 512gb m4 for 300 during black friday and a 512gb 840 for 320 last month.

    @Tomislav, hyperx 3k should be fine. the fact is this: there are many decent ssds out there; and most of us recommend them based on personal preferences and experience only.

    as always tnx rewben, samsung is rather expensive here (almost more than 200 $ for 128 GB) and I'ver read the benchmarks for kingston and they score almost as high and even higher in some categories as samsung 840 and it's 20-30 $ cheaper.
