Is there a dedicated SSD thread buried somewhere here in the Mac Mini forum? I did a search and didn't find anything. I thought maybe a "dedicated" thread might be helpful? Anyways I have a general question as I am looking at getting a SSD to upgrade my late 2012 i7 Mini. I want a 500-512GB drive. Looking for the best bang for the buck. From my limited understanding and reading, Samsung (840 Pro/850 Pro) and Crucial M500 seem like they are good bang for the buck. Are those basically the best options for bang for your buck at the moment?
