Can I get some advice as to which is the best SSD to buy. I'm presently looking at a 240Gig. I presently have two HD's. One currently has 130,888,000 gigs on it while the other has zero on it. 

Take a look at this and give me your thoughts if you would. Thanks!

The link didn't work for me.

We'd need to know more about your system to make a good recommendation. In particular, we'd need to know the interface your computer uses to access disk drives: SATA 1, 2, 3, PCIe, etc. There's no use buying a faster SSD if your computer won't let it transfer at the higher speeds.

Bill, why did I figure I was going to be asked questions that I would have no idea about. As far as the sata, I do not know what that is nor do I know how to find it.

Maybe this will help ... I've got an ASUS Republic of Gamers G750JW with an i7 processor(s) and 16 Gigs of RAM.

Surely you err or jest.

They sure are not making HD's small anymore. I mean hey, a 130,888,900,608 Gig Drive is large compared to what they used to be. 

Seriously, out of the two possible things you mentioned "err" or "jest" the former would be correct. That should have been Bytes. Sorry about that. I should have written 121 Gigs are used on one drive with zero on the other. Both are 500 Gig Drives.

I would strongly recommend you read this round-up: http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-ssds/

I always turn to Wirecutter for questions like this because their articles are always up to date, and round up information from dozens of other review sites. More importantly, they cut to the chase and recommend a product for 'ordinary people', not just the latest tech trend.

I just realized this is in the wrong part of the forum. I had meant to post this in Logos 6.
