    I'm looking at ripping out the old, loud, slow, hot stock hard drive in my little PowerBook with an SSD.

    After a couple of minutes searching the Kingspec SSD's are by far the cheapest around. However I've heard people in the past on here having issues with these drives. Are they reliable/worth buying over something like a Scorpio Blue?

    I've also come across these Samsung SSD's. Are they decent?

    Cheers.

    Those Samsung drives came out a few years ago. They're not very fast, slower than that IDE bus.

    Samsung 240 pro

    I installed a Samsung pro in my Mac Mini four months ago and it is great. Start up time is very fast and I haven't any operating problems. To offset the somewhat limited capacity 240g I have installed a USB external HD. Now I see you can buy the SSDs reconed. from Samsung for under 150. As an aside I maxed out the memory too.
