I was meant to answer your question about differences between the two drives. Not as a price list. You asked for information not a price list. Get prices at TigerDirect.com - Computers, Computer Parts, Computer Components, Netbooks & Electronics!!! Glad to help ya!!!WOW!!

No he was commenting on the price of SSDs back 3 years ago when that article was written and how much they have come down.

I'm quite happy with two Crucial RealSSDs, one 64 GB and the other a 128 GB.

As to this thread being marked as solved.
I haven't read what drive the OP actually bought. Maybe I missed it?

Yeah I know what you mean. Problem is in 3 years the technology that is used today will have changed raising the price again and todays technology will not be used anymore so no way to buy at a cheap price.

In the last 12 years I have built about 7-10 PC, for myself and others, and they always cost a little over $1000. The speed has increased, but the price hasn't dropped.
And I can't get a 5 year old motherboard or CPU anymore even if that is all the speed I needed.
Just like you can't buy XP anymore.

Really go buy a SSD. Newegg has Crucial 128GB SATA III 6GB drives for $199. Two weeks ago it was more expensive when I bought my Intel 320 120GB drive.

You can always sit around and wait in the computer game or you can spend some money and reap the benefits over the next few years.

With that said, as an owner of an SSD and feeling it was the most noticeable performance upgrade in a while, I can still honestly say that these things are really just a good fit for the enthusiast. They are far from a requirement as far as I am concerned. For my primary home use all purpose desktop at home...sure...I am an enthusiast. For all of my other home machines, no way will I spend the money on them today. My conventional drives are fast enough for most of my computer use.
