Computer Lounge really hooked me up, ordered on Thursday and it turned up the next day! and it was a preorder item on their website!!!

Looking for an SSD. Best quality? Don't need a lot of room. 60GB would do. Thanks guys.

i wouldnt go any lower than a 120. 60 would be pretty annoying and theyre actually a bit slower than the bigger versions

For best quality and reliability go for an intel ssd. But 60gb is pretty small your os alone will take up approx 18gigs. Def go a 120gb if you can stretch it!

Yeah. I'd go above 60Gb for a desktop. A HTPC 60Gb is fine for OS and apps then using large HDDs for storage and recording.

120Gb for Laptop, work PC or where you really only play one game.

240Gb and up for regular use gaming PC.

Also I can speak from experience. No OCZ.

Thanks guys. I can definitely do 120/128GB whatever Intel makes it. I take it Intel is the most trusted brand to buy from?

EDIT: How about this one?

What is the difference between the different numeral codes designating different Intel drives? 520, 330, etc?
