Now that the ultrabooks features the ultra fast, ultra responsive technology and that they do best with the solid state drives over the traditional hard disk drives. When the traditional drives take much time to boot, around 55-60 seconds minimum, but we have the solid state ones take up here and do the job in just 14 seconds. Now that’s a big gap both and quite amazing one here. But sure things like that got a price and a big price, now that when this solid state drives are still new, and the price they carry sure would be the same way. The same reason only most laptop manufacturers bundle a smaller version if SSD for the OS and then the bigger version HDD for storage. That’s one way to offer technology and same time cut the costs in the tough competition.
If you have not yet installed on of this kind for your PC, it’s still good you didn’t do it as the costs were really much. But now you have a massive cut on the SSD, probably the right time you can make a switch. Affordable SSD’s as low as $240 one could find. Here are few of the ones you can consider instead of choosing along anything in random.
Intel SSD 520 (240GB)
Comes with the highly popular controller, the SandForce SF-2281. The performance the SandForce SF-2281 got to offer is the one reason Intel chose along this one controller over proprietary Intel chip. Comes with Intel’s tailored firmware for improved performance and reliability. With the 25nm synchronous NAND flash, Intel SSD 520 ensures performance.
SanDisk Extreme (240GB)
Equipped with the performance SandForce SF-2281 controller, the one popular controller used by most SSD’s in the class. But here it couples with the controller a 24nm SanDisk toggle NAND memory. SanDosk got hands on the price control, the NAND memories are manufactured by them, and the price naturally they can bring down or up, but the performance their technology got to offer stays up.
Patriot Pyro SE (240GB)
This one device as well makes use of the highly efficient SandForce SF-2281 controller, but here it bundles this with a lightning fast 25nm synchronous NAND Flash memory to deliver performance at its best.
Kingston HyperX SH100S3 (240GB)
Hyper X as well makes use of the SandForce SF-2281 controller and it couples with it a high speed speedy 25nm synchronous NAND flash from Intel.
Samsung 830 Series (256GB)
Ths one series of Samsung SSD’s carry with them triple core controllers. That ensures the best of multitasking capabilities and high end performance.
