Greetings all!

So, I think it's time for my first SSD. I'm not doing a full system upgrade until sometime next year, but my main HDD is staring to act up.

So anyway, I'd like a 512gb SSD, but depending on prices, I may need to stick with 256...

Are they all pretty much the same, or are some actually better than others?

Any advice would be appreciated...

Thanks!

As far as I know, most of them now more or less vary by performance and long term wear. But since it's been pretty much distilled to Samsung, Crucial, and OCZ for SSDs, I stopped looking around. Samsung's been pretty good though with price, performance, and long term use.

Anyone knowwhy there's such a huge price jump from, say 250gb to 256gb, or 500gb to 512gb?

I like the ssd for the OS so you wouldn't need such a large one, 120gb at most. nothing wrong with a HDD for storage. but if you want a brand name I would go Samsung or OCZ.

The pricing on SSDs can basically summed up as "whatever the hell they want".
