Not sure if $5 off a SSD is a slick deal....especially since its a daily deal which people could just go to ebay and see everyday.

That being said, I need a SSD, but one this small is mostly worthless except as a boot drive. I like the falling prices in general though

This is the best price you will usually find on a SSD right now in 120gb in size. They will sometimes dip to like $33. This was same price from newegg.com last week. Looks like a decent price though. Tempted to pick one up for my parents rig as I threw in an old laptop hard drive in their PC when their hard drive failed. Its painfulloy slow (to me at least, hate using it when visiting)

120GB is plenty to liven up old laptops. I remember have dual core laptops that came with 80GB HDs.

With a SSD those old Core 2 Duos will be blazing.

Anyone have any input/recommendation between this one or one of the Kingstons on Amazon for $38? Just looking to breathe life into an older laptop.

Thanks in advance

I think the consensus is that all the drives in this price range are about the same. That includes the Mushkin Eco3, Sandisk SSD Plus, and ADATA SP550.

Behind those 3 are the Kingston and OCZ ones that don't benchmark as well, but probably aren't that dramatically different. Also, Kingston has this negative stigma for baiting and switching on the v300 drive I think, by putting cheaper components than advertised or something. I think it'll be a while before they rebuild their reputation among SDers.

Mushkin is an American company, manufactured in the USA, but apparently their Eco2 SSD had some issues. The Mushkin, Sandisk, and ADATA all have generally favorable reviews and are reliable drives.

I'm thinking about getting the Mushkin myself, but I think I may wait a while because it's for a computer i don't use regularly.

I kinda like Sandisk because it's a good name brand, even if it's slower than some of the others I listed.

120gb is fine for a computer that does strictly internet browsing and stuff. However, I was pretty surprised how quickly my 250gb filled up after I started taking pictures on my smartphone.

Yeah, I posted the Kingston one the other day at the same price and it got thumbed down because it wasn't a good price/ product, this is the same cheapo deal and gets the front page because it's posted by a mod......

Eh I Just looked at your drive deal you posted. Overall the drive has good reviews but I remember doing some research on it and the newer batches used a different memory type that has many users reporting bad drives. I personally wouldn't touch that specifc drive. This one doesn't look half bad. Honestly I am hoping that cheap sandisk drive goes back on sale again, sure its write speed is a little slow at 180gb but I have 2x of them so far and no issues to boot. Done several different OS install with them as well trying out different flavors of linux.

Only buy Mushkin if you're okay with losing your information. I bought one last year and it died just recently. I have a replacement via RMA after paying shipping. This happens often and it's due to the type of controller it uses.
