    Not shipping for a few weeks though.

    So for around $110-130 120/128GB most SSD's are pretty much the same yeah? Was looking at the Sandisk Extreme 2/Intel 530.

    Was looking at the SanDisk SSD Ultra Plus 128 for $95 but it's crapper than my Sandisk Extreme.

    Can't go wrong with either the Plextor M5S ($110) or M5 Pro ($135) IMO.

    I was looking at one of these but spotted this on (lol) msy.

    Samsung 840BW EVO MZ-7TE1T0BW 1TB SATAIII SSD Solid State Drive Our Price: $669.00

    Not a bad price for a few extra gig.

    As a friend keeps bugging me about speed and reliablity as he currently has a OCZ Vertex 4 128GB (OS and program drive) and wants to get another drive for a pure games drive.

    Thanks

    Seriously, Samsung or Intel, neither can do wrong. Case in point, hows the warranty for that OCZ going? Intel and Samsung will both be kicking LONG after their drives respected warranties expire and the drives finally give in.
