    You can get 240 GB for extra 5. 120 is acceptable, but what if you try to dual boot Windows Insider and install a game or two?

    BTW: Sandisk Plus is OK.

    I have had bad experiences with Sandisk USBs and MicroSDs. I highly doubt their SSDs are any good. They tend (for me) to be unreliable and die quickly. If I were @jaknapceu I would go for a Samsung SSD (1st preference), then maybe an Intel, Crucial (Micron?), or Kingston.

    @jaknapceu: I would say more space is almost always better if the price is right. 120GB may be all you need, but in the end Windows is bigger than you think. Tack on room for future updates, drivers, apps and softwares, and very soon that 120 is filled up. Some SSDs also require unallocated space at the end of the disk, for overprovisioning that the drive's firmware silently makes use of, so take that into account. I would go for a 256 minimum, or 512, to give yourself a nice space buffer so you have extra room. They are not much more expensive than a 128. I actually just bought a 500GB Samsung SSD for my ultrabook less than an hour ago on Amazon, for only $165.xx. Not a bad deal.

    I have to disagree to almost all of you choices, except for Samsung. Intel's and Kingston's consumer drives are among worst. They are still good if replacing HD, but can get better drives if you are really on budget.

    If you can't afford the Samsung, you can get any cheap drive and it will probably serve you well. Try some local stores, since Amazon doesn't ship free in your country. I think Edigital is in your country and they ship for free over 50 . They have Kingston HyperX Fury 240 for 67 , and this drive is quite good.

    Edit: i know it is funny, that I disagree with Kingston in the first place an then recommend it. Such is life
    HyperX was quite expensive before, not in consumer league...

    Do you habe any statistical proof for your state,memts - else they are just throw-away comments. I have very good experience with Sandisk including their SSDs.

    I would simply go for a name brand that's around 250Gb.

    @ whs: No, I don't have statistical proof for my comments, and don't need it. I'm not a statistician/researcher and I don't normally keep logs/journals of my computing activities.What I said is simply a personal *OPINION*, due to my previous bad experience with Sandisk products. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, and it should be fairly obvious that I was just stating an opinion. If I was trying to prove something, then it would be reasonable to expect me to provide proof. I just *BELIEVE* that Sandisk SSDs are probably no better than any of their products I've tried.

    +1 and I'm still using some them for about 8 years now.

    An excellent shop in Germany which I'm pretty sure delivers to TS' country is Alternate. Never had any problem with it and they're deliver very fast.


    Other brands I can recommend are Mushkin , OCZ to name just a few.
    I agree that for the money you may as well go for a drive in the 240 to 256 Gb range. The price difference with most 120 Gb drive is negligible and the extra real estate is always useful.

    Cheers,
