By the way i'm only looking to buy it for use to hold an operating system and probably the programs? Any help would be appreciated I don't really understand all that much about using a SSD as primary and another one as storage for data and such :P Thanks.

It's not really that great. $60 is not much either to be honest though, so for the price it's alright.

May I however suggest this http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1083873&CatId=5300

It's the same model but uses sata3 and gets almost double the speeds

I would think $60 is very cheap...almost too cheap

The other day the Crucial m4 was on sale at Newegg, 128GB for $130. SSDs are getting really close to $1 per gigabyte which is an amazing price.

The Crucial drives aren't great. OCZ, Intel 520, Patriot or Corsair are always better for speed, and normally either cheaper or similar in price.

From what I understand Intel drives are the best since they perform well and are extremely reliable. OCZ drives are really fast but not quite as reliable. Crucial drives are in between OCZ and Intel at least when it comes to current generation SSDs.
