Default Best priced SSD

Hello HWC,

The hard drive in my iMac just died. I am looking to replace it with an SSD. I am looking to get one in the next few days. I think i would like to get a 120 or 128GB. Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks

It is a 2010 27" iMac
Model Number: A1312
EMC Number: 2390

From what i can find the fastest it will run is 3Gbps, but i could be wrong.

Cheapest place I think is newegg.ca they are $100 - $10 coupon NEWCUSTOMERCA and free shipping
Newegg.ca - SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
You may have to make a new account (or 2).

That drive uses TLC nand I believe, TLC has the lowest endurance of the 3 types of NAND.
