With Christmas looming and lots of people looking for presents for that special geek in their lives, we decided to take a look at one of the most affordable SSD's. Most geeks will tell you SSD's aren't worth the price for the storage you get, while at the same time, drool leaks from the corners of their mouths. It's something they probably wouldn't get for themselves, but secretly would love to have.
Most enthusiasts disheartened by the price simply stopped looking at SSD's, so when G.Skill contacted us about taking a look at their budget minded 64GB SSD, we were happy to accommodate the request. The first thing a lot of people are going to want to know is how budget minded is it. At the time of posting we spotted it at a major E-Tailor with no rebate for $152 (USD). It's still a little pricey if you figure it in a dollars per gigabyte manner.
That same $152 would look pretty cheap, if you were looking at replacing major components is a system that was annoying you by running too slow, if it gave your rig back the spring in its step. While current drives aren't huge capacity drives, running one as your boot drive with some of your favorite games on it is a good option to rejuvenate an aging system. So, without further ado, we give you the G.Skill 64GB SSD!
