    Most 256/250gb SSD's are under 10k and generally they are faster than 120/128gb units. So I don't see the value in 120/128gb SSD unless you don't care about relative performance but just faster boot time than traditional HDD.
    My probable next build: Qisan MagicForce 68 (Outemu switch) / Teamwolf Zhuque+ 87 TKL (Outemu) / Monoprice Select series full size (Outemu/Gateron) / Drevo Gramr 84 TKL (Outemu) • Logitech G102 Prodigy • Deepcool Dukase V3 / Thermaltake Versa U21 • Superlux HD 681 • Creative Sound Blaster E1 • LG 22MP68VQ • SteelSeries QcK • Generic executive chair • others TBA

    djrock please don't bother me. You are in my ignore list so I don't have to see literal poop.

    Right now I'd say no, it's not worth getting a 128 GB SSD, unless you're on a tight budget and your PC is running super slow, you could get one just to make it faster, but for storing stuff it's better to go with at least a 256 GB one. A 128 GB should only be for booting and for applications with most priority if you have a need for speed. Also SSD prices are going down so it's better to go for at least 256 GB nowadays. But for a quick speed boost getting 128GB will be fine.


    For the brands SAMSUNG 850 series is currently the best for SATA SSD and is most preferred, but here these ususally go for a higher price compared to others. I don't remember the price for 120 GB one but the 240 is 9-10k. The cheapest you can get is probably the ADATA 120 GB one from OSGS at 4.6k if I'm not wrong, and most others are around 5k (SAMSUNG is probably more expensive though). Although SAMSUNG is most preferred many use Sandisk and Transcend as they are usually cheaper but still great, so you could look into that too if you are on a budget.

    Actually my budget is about 5k. So i can't get a 250GB one right now. So i might have to wait then
