Hello everyone. I am new to building in general and have zero experience w/ SSD. until recently i planned on getting my SSD from microcenter but they had another item out of stock so i started to recently comparing other SSD and now am confused lol.

the microcenter one

one i saw recommended on this site: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226318


and this one on amazon for cheaper and i don't see the difference: Mushkin Chronos 120 GB

I am looking for the best 120gb SSD ( I know "best" could be subjective but I want your opinion in this case :) ) for $120 and I rly dont care where i get it from or if it is one of the ones i mentioned or not.

so feel free to suggest what you think is the best $120, 120gb SSD.

Thank you.



 
Mushkin Chronos Deluxe....the difference between the Deluxe and nn-Deluxe versions is that only the Deluxe has premium 3Xnm Toshiba Toggle Mode Flash for both extreme performance and extreme long life.

To sum it all up with a bow on top, you get amazing performance, extremely long service life and a hassle free low price point on a drive that literally has very little competition in the marketplace.
