Hi, as I have never used an SSD before and my computer is due for the upgrade, I have been looking at cheap SSDs to buy. My budget is around the 50-£60 mark. I have been doing research and I understand that the Samsung is a better SSD overall but the capacity is putting me off. I can get the Kingston for the same price and for double the capacity. I know about the issues that the v300 had with them changing components within that were lower speeds than the previous ones being used. This however doesn't put me off buying the Kingston SSD.

I hope you guys can answer my question. Thanks, Kyle.

Yes I would love to do that but I don't really have the money for that SSD :/

Thanks for the answer. Both of the products that you suggested are out of stock at the moment but I will also look into buying them.

Don't sweat it. get one of teh two i listed and you'll be fine. The EVO are no a must. If you can afford 'em, sure. If not, doesn't matter. SSDs are awesoma anyway.
Oh, adn btw, due to their parralel nature, ah heck SSDs are faster, so a lower "tier" 240gb SSD may well beat a highee tier 120GB one.

Yeah I think that I am going to go with the 240 GB Kingston drive or something similar and run a similar setup with the OS and most uses applications on the SSD and other things on my 1TB HDD.

Ye the SSD OS and HDD bulk storage combo is a good one.
