    Default HELP buying SSD

    Hello, I plan on buying a SSD for my laptop. I will be able to manage with 120 GB. I don't need the best performance, just a budget-friendly good quality SDD.

    Please mention a few SSDs you recommend along with price and the shop where I can get it from. I would really appreciate your help.

    My max budget is 13 thousand i guess. BTW, is electroshop a good shop? they have a showroom in uttara, so if its good, i can get it from there.

    Which one would you guys suggest between the ones mentioned below.

    Corsair Neutron Series GTX 120GB - http://electroshop.info/shopping/pro...ate-Drive.html
    OCZ Vertex 4, 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC - http://electroshop.info/shopping/pro...ernal-SSD.html
    SAMSUNG 840 EVO 120GB SATA III TLC - http://electroshop.info/shopping/pro...ate-Drive.html
    Crucial M4 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC - http://electroshop.info/shopping/pro...ernal-SSD.html

    I am leaning towards Samsung 840 evo, as the price is low.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I read something about TLC NAND wearing out before MLC, if its true then I have no problem spending more on another SSD. Long term reliability is really important.

    TLC longevity is not an issue for normal users like us.

    Yep, and the Samsung's have proven to be extremely reliable as well. Neutron will be slightly faster when both are filled up but to be honest you would be hard pressed to tell the difference.

    isnt cs used to import samsung ssd's? did they stop it now? though you can consider intel ssds too available in binary logic, and buying something from amazon via 3rd party people with exceed price of 10k+ without any warranty isnt a good idea imo

    Thanks guys. I will import it through amazon.co.bd. Thats the best choice since I save some money that way. My choices are:

    Crucial M500 120GB - http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-2-5-In...ucial+m500+120

    Samsung Electronics 840 EVO 120GB - http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electr...ds=evo+840+120

    My calculated cost of importing for m500 is BDT 7,200 and Evo is BDT 9,200.
    Evo seems to have the slight edge in performance according to reviews, but i will save BDT 2,000 if I choose m500. I am still deciding but I will probably choose Crucial m500. If you guys think that is the wrong choice then do let me know. Thanks.

    My experience with M4 was not good. M500 might have resolved the issue. Dont know if they changed the controller or not.
