SSD for under a hundred bucks?
 
Hey guys. I don't really know much about SSDs, and I don't know which numbers are considered fast. I was hoping if someone could enlighten me. :biggrin: Well basically, I want something under 100, that will make me go "wow!". I've never used an SSD yet and I'm hoping for around 64 gigs. Any help and suggestions would be very much appreciated.

This was a little cheaper when there boxing day sale first started but now it's a little more, I grabbed it a few weeks ago for $99 when it was on sale as well and it's at $99 again.
NCIX.com - Buy Kingston SSDNow V100 Series 64GB 2.5IN SSD SATA Solid State Disk Flash Drive - SV100S2/64GZ In Canada.

Someone else will probably chime in and post something different, there's alot of sales right now so just take a look around at ncix, memoryexpress, newegg and such.

This is not quite under $100 but close.

I bought a 64GB Kingston SDnow V series for one of my books and was disappointed with the performance. I'm replacing it with a Vertex2.

Hey, Dry. I don't mean to infringe on this thread, but if you could please answer the PM's I've sent about the laptop you sold me that would be great. Perhaps you have notification disabled or something, I'm not sure.
