Default NV News Rage Report: Techspot sub-$150 SSD Review

From: http://www.techspot.com/review/313-budget-ssd-roundup/

Quote:
... Most of the drives featured in this round-up offer 32GB - 40GB capacities, while a few others top out at 64GB. As limiting as a 32GB drive might appear, they can still be extremely useful in enhancing a PC's performance when set to run as the boot drive. These smaller drives can also accommodate for select programs where they can greatly speed up the use of the application, for example, Adobe Photoshop.

Gamers are likely going to want at least a 64GB drive considering many titles weigh in at more than 8GB these days. Thankfully, we were able to find a few good options that provide this kind of storage capacity for less than $150...
It's nice to see prices coming down. When do you think that this group of SSDs will occupy the $60-$100 range instead of the $83-$130 price bracket?

I'll grab one when I can get a 120GB for a reasonable price. MINIMUM, 64GB.
