To date, the least expensive SSDs worth consideration have come in at around $100 give or take. Our last roundup looked at the Intel X25-V 40GB, the Kingston SSDNow V Series 30GB, and the OCZ Onyx. Intel uses their own controller, Kingston uses a Toshiba controller, and OCZ uses the Indilinx Amigo controller. Crucial's 64GB C300 is the latest addition to the inexpensive SSD category; it costs 50% more but offers twice the storage of the 30GB drives, which makes it large enough for service as the only drive in your laptop.
