    Hey all.

    With the deals on amazon and the egg I may jump up to an SSD today so here's what I'm comparing between.

    Kingston (240 gig at $170) or Samsung (128 gig at $90 w/ EMCYTZT1880 promo code)

    Which do you think would be the better buy? I've not seen many reviews on the Kingston and I do love Samsung. W/ the OS on it how many games would I be able to fit onto the Samsung?

    Thanks :)

    To back him up on the size. The Samsung is a very well regarded SSD.
