Cheers to all who responded (very fast indeed).

Also, thanks for the advice on putting applications on the SSD as well.

I'll go for the biggest on that I can afford which, hopefully, will be a 128GB.

Sounds good.

The most commonly recommended brands would be Samsung, Intel, and Crucial.

If they were all priced identically, I'd probably go with Samsung although I now have an Intel.

Not enough difference among those 3 brands to worry about. Shop for the best deal at your chosen size.

My SSD is only 120 G.

I have Windows 7 and all of my required programs and still have 70G FREE.

Thanks again. What about OCZ? On Overclockers.co.uk (where I go, literally just down the road from me) the OCZ have high ratings and respect.

Cheers guys

Same here. OCZ Agility 3 60GB

Edit: I got this due to budget, I needed a boost in my laptop and knew it would help. I didn't have the funds for the 128GB, but this is plenty for the OS and a few programs (I keep about 16GB free). and was a substantial boost in performance in a laptop with little upgrades available. If you have the funds, I would also go with the 128. OCZ as far as I have seen are at the front of most benchmarks.

Hiyya mine are all 120GB with 500GGB HDD datas - but haven't had to use them yet.

The Samsungs (830) are good value at the moment and Crucial (M4) a very close second. Have them in all my machines now (5) and they haven't missed a beat.

I have 3 OCZs and they all work well. But there are some OCZ models that are real dogs. So you have to carefully check out the particular model. Reading the user comments at Newegg usually helps.

Ditto to the Samsung 830 comment. Have just replaced a spinner in my laptop with one of these and the performance jump was off the graph. Had a choice of upgrading the laptop to a newer spec machine or go with the SSD (my RAM was max'd out). Saved me several $$$'s going the SSD route rather than a new laptop.

Amazon are offering some good deals atm on SSD's.

On my desktop I use a 128gb SSD with the OS and all programs on it. Data, etc is stored on a separate spinner.

Yeah I am waiting on trying out the 120 SanDisk at the moment and thinking of getting the Corsair Force Series 3 240GB to try as well cos if my experience with Corsair RAM is anything to go by it should be good and it is so well priced right now.
