    Default SSD buying help

    Budget ~6500tk.
    Current choice: Intel 540 180gb (6k)
    Alternate Choice: Adata Premier SP550 240gb (6.5k)
    Considering: Samsung 850 EVO 250gb (8k)
    Looking for: Something with MLC within budget. Maybe Intel 535 120gb (4.8k)??


    Few people suggested me intel for reliability in the past. Also, Samsung's TRIM problems with 840 and linux queued trim on 850 EVO is a bit concern for me. But intel's new 540 has neither intel's controller nor intel's flash. It's basically Adata SP550 with same flash and a slightly newer controller from same company. And A-Data has more capacity at similar price. On the other hand, Computer Source's website shows Intel 535 available, 120gb 4.8k and 240gb 7.8k (over budget like samsung 850 evo). This one has MLC NAND. Which one should I get? I'd use it primarily for OS drive, and I can sacrifice a bit of speed for long term reliability.

    Where do I find one with SATA port, or where do I find an M.2 port in my PC?

    @VANGUARD bro, are the Zotac PE really out of stock? I decided to buy the 120GB one, from Chittagong showroom if possible.
