Oh well... guess what I have sitting in front of me, and in my computer, now? SanDisk! They had several HUNDRED 5* ratings on Newegg, so I bought two of 'em. (Only $64 each, 120 gig)

They claim "20x faster than a typical HD"... which means this drive might be 2x faster than other SSD's. My experience has been that SSD is about 10x faster. (Unofficial benchmarks.) It's rated for a max sequential read speed of 530MB/s

When I restored my 17.6 gig (compressed) backup onto it via my gigabit NAS drive, it only took 6 minutes... hauling 45MB/sec! I ain't complaining. ;)

It's nice to have my computer running at top speed, again. :)

Stick with Crucial/Micron, Samsung, and Sandisk in a pinch.  I haven't seen anything good or bad about the newer Western Digitals, but the other three I mentioned are good.


And although Sandisk is king of SD cards… I would put them at the bottom of the stack of three that I just mentioned…  They work, but they don't perform the best.
