After finding that my hard drive is starting to die on me, I have decided to buy a SSD. Only I now hear that some are a lot slower on small files, and some are less reliable.
I'm wanting to spend about £50 - £60 for a 120gb SSD, which one would be the most reliable or the fastest?
Cheers.

IMO I wouldn't look too much at the small file transfer speed, because they are small they will be almost instant anyway.
The key thing is the speed of the machine you are putting it in. If the laptop is only sata 2 for example then a top of the range sata 3 would only run at sata 2 speeds and limited by what your machine can handle.

Extremetech sugest Intel are the way forward for reliability. The only safe way is to keep backups and as you are only going for a 120 gig drive it cost much to keep a backup of your key stuff on a quality memory stick or external hard drive. The drive itself would be covered by warranty.

Thanks for the link, I was only planning on keeping the OS and a couple of programs and games on the SSD anyway so warrenty is the best safety net I'll need.
I'm using an ASRock H61m-VS motherboard, which on sites says its using a 3Gbit/s Sata connector, which I'm assuming is probably a sata2 due to the age. So I think I'll go look for an intel then.
Thanks again for the info.
