    Suggestions for a good M.2 SSD

    orage was the least priority for me when building a pc but when
    I finally got my first SSD which is an OCZ Arc 100, everthing was
    real fast.

    I am now exploring more about SSD's and I am eyeing on to get
    an M.2 SSD since I am planning to build a mini ITX system.

    I've searched for those affordable M.2 SSD's and found this.

    BIOSTAR M200




    At $54 for the 120Gb variant, it's the most affordable I could find.
    Would like to hear your thoughts about it.
    Is the price worth it or there something better that could match the price?
    Thank you.

    Be careful looking at low end m.2 drives. The Read/Writes of really good m.2 drives are about 2400/1600MBytes, the low end m.2 are just SSD basically uncovered with read/writes in the 500/300MBytes ranges, quite a big difference. At those lower transfer speeds might as well save the money and just go with an SSD if it will fit in the ITX case or enclosure.

    I just recently got my first Samsung SSD, even though it isn't an M2 drive and I'm not disapointed one bit. I would definitely go for a Samsung drive, though it will cost more at first, but in the long run, well worth it.
