Recommended Ssd

Question

So my computer hasn't had an OS re-install in about 2 years (I've been lazy) Anyways I'm thinking of doing a full restart of it by upgrading to a SSD HD for my OS ONLY. fast boot time etc etc. 

 

So who has an SSD they have and don't have any issues with?

 

Any SSD from the Tech wizz's per recommendation?

 

I'm gonna pick it up on Cyber Monday most likely. 

 

 

 

Thanks in Advance!

I agree with blind, with one minor note.  If you go Samsung, I would go with the Pro series.  The EVO's are TLC, and don't have nearly as long of a lifespan as the Pros do.

Im with Blind on this have tried many OCZ seemed like a good idea at the time have done the vertex 2, 3, and 4 but they would just disappear from the bios boot up randomly, ran great but their art in just disappearing just made me blow them out and switch to Samsung Pro and EVO not missed a beat since using them for over 2years now, my crucial are in the laptops no issues either, but do prefer the Samsung.

While browsing Newegg, I saw a brand (Munchkin) that though had fewer ratings had relatively good ratings. Anyone buy a Munchkin SSD?

I've been using two Seagate 600s (0+1 setup) without problems for sixish months now, but there are a number of reviews floating around that say they fail at just under a year.  The few power cuts/surges mine have experienced only resulted in broken partitions and/or a disassociated RAID.  I've had no performance or data issues, but if I did it again I'd go with Samsung Pros
