These Super-Cheap SSDs Should Convince You to Switch Storage



If you feel like your computer needs a boost but are struggling for cash, here's something that might help: Crucial has just launched a range of value SSDs, and you can snag the cheapest one for just $50.

The new range of solid-state storage comes in the shape of the 2.5-inch v4 drives. While they're slightly slower than their more expensive sibling, the m4, they still offer read speeds of up to 230 MB/s and write speeds of up to 190 MB/s with SATA 2-capable computers. Being 2.5-inch they won't fit in an ultrabook, but they should fit in normal laptops.

And then there's the prices. While $50 will only get you a 32 GB v4 SSD, that may well be all you need if you're planning to run it as a boot disk for your OS to run off, or if you only use your laptop for light work. Either way, installing an SSD will give you a massive speed boost.

Of course, if that's not enough storage, you can pick up the v4 in 64GB ($70), 128GB ($100) and 256GB ($190) versions, too. More here.

This is pretty cheap, especially considering the storage in these bad boys, thanks for sharing this for us buddy, it does seem like quite the investment to me at least.
