SSD Sale

I know Jcole is a big advocate for SSD's and I almost didn't include one in my build for budget reasons. I couldn't justify 100-150 bucks for 120gigs. Well today I got a newegg email with a promo code of 72SALE9 which will discount an already discounted 250gb drive from $189.99 to $149.99.

From all of my reading, Samsung has been the consensus top brand. Just wanted to let everyone know and also get opinions on the drive itself.

re: SSD Sale
I have purchased a Samsung for my home PC. I also have purchased an OCZ for my work computer. Outside of the video cards, both pc's are exactly the same. I find that the Samsung is faster. Take that for what it's worth.

re: SSD Sale
I'm going to take it at slightly below market-worth. Is that ok?

You have to take it to the limit, all day, every day.

Seriously, if I had any kind of spare money right now I'd buy one, I have one already and it's great, I house all my game files on it.

re: SSD Sale
Remember guys it is not the 840 PRO

The PRO is pretty much the best SSD going right now.

I could be wrong but I assume it is software that allows data transfers from original HDDs onto the SSD.

I agree completely. Just making sure people know there is a difference.
