Which SSD To Buy?

Hi.

I have noticed the prices of 120gb SSD dropping recently and I am tempted to buy one, unless people think they will drop further.

My laptop is running a Intel HM55 chipset, so Sata II

I am looking at the following SSD's:

Kingston 120GB V+200 SSD - SATA-III for £70 Sandisk 120GB Ultra SSD - SATA-II for £65 OCZ 120GB Agility 3 SSD - SATA-III for £78

Which do people think has the best performance for my PC, 2 are Sata III or Sata II compatible.

Thanks Luke

SSD are falling in price. In February 20120 purchased a OCZ 120GB Agility 3 for MacBook for £115 and is brilliant. Am looking at a 240GB soon for my PC DEsktop but will wait a month or two for prices to hopefully stabilise.

Made a big difference to the performance of machine even though the motherboard supports SATA II.

Have read negative reviews about Kingston, dont know about Sandisk.

I've also noticed that the prices are plummeting. I'm running a C300-CTFDDAC064MAG Crucial SSD on desktop. Might try an OCZ one next time for the laptop if prices fall further.

hssutton, I have just checked out ebuyer and I see what you mean !

I paid more than that for my current SSD drive of 128 GB in size.
