Picking a good solid-state drive means juggling storage capacity and performance against price. Given the staggering array of drives out there, finding the best one can be tricky.
Currently for solid-state drives the sweet spot for capacity is around 256GB, and from my experience the best drive in with this capacity is the Crucial M4 CT256M4SSD2. Here you get a 256GB drive that offers read speeds up to 500MB/s, and write speeds of around 260MB/s. There are faster and bigger drives out there, but for $170 the Crucial M4 is very hard to beat.
