Best budget 240GB SSD

I want to buy a 240GB SSD so that I can install windows 8 on the same. I have a 64 gb SSD but that’s not sufficient, it will run out of space after installing some applications and games. I want to know which will be the best budget and best choice 240GB SSD for now. Suggestions regarding this will be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Re: Best budget 240GB SSD

You can check out these two, they are cheaper compared to the ones mentioned above:
Intel 335 Series 2.5-Inch 240 GB SATA 6 Gb/s Solid-State Drive SSDSC2CT240A4K5 ? 16,000 rs
SanDisk Extreme SSD 240GB Hi Speed SATA 6 - 2.5 Inch Laptop Drive - 240 GB ? 16,400 rs
Ill suggest you to go with the Intel one, not because it is cheap but its better. I have tested windows 8 on the same and I never had that much smooth experience on any SSD so far.

Re: Best budget 240GB SSD

If you are looking for cheaper one then I guess Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SATA III 2.5" 6 0GB/s Solid State Drive SH103S3/240Gis cheapest of them all. It will cost you around 15.5 k. It has 555MB/sec read and 510MB/sec write speeds, it comes with a 3.5-Inch bracket and mounting screws to fit in your cpu case easily. Once you install it in your system, your system will take very less time to boot up and your applications will start loading faster as well.
