Not what yiu asked, but this one. 

 

If im not misstaken the UV400 doesnt have a cache. 

 

Its a bit extra but double the storage

I know but it is for my gf, so it doesnt have to be so much better than the 2 above. thnx anyway. so which one would you buy?

Id get the uv400, its cheaper, and you won't notice the difference.

I like that the intel has 5yrs warranty.

id grab a little bit more expencive 250 GB one. not only is it more space, but the cache should help a little with the reads and writes.

if you are using it for OS aswell id grab a 250 GB unless running tightly on a budget. Windows love to eat up space and you want to have the startup apps on the SSD. 

 

there is also a general rule for keeping the SSD healthy and thats keeping about 10%ish headroom of storage. This dramatically increases lifetime due to the limited reads and writes per cell in SSDs.

 

if you are on a budget and you dont really mind, the UV 400 should work fine. ive got one in my laptop and it has worked fine, even when page-filing websites and apps. its is quick on startup and it takes about 9 Seconds to boot. if you got the cash i think the 250GB is really worth it

What other choices are there? 545s is vastly better but it's also a bit more expensive. UV400 is towards the low end though.

Buy whatever product is best for you, not what product is "best" for the market.

 

I seem to like any products who have the same software and hardware maker, as long as it's not Apple. Weird. I like the Surface Book and the Pixel phones, but most definitely don't want an iPhone (I'm not saying they're bad, though).

 

Interested in computer architecture? Still in middle or high school? P.M. me!

 

I love computer hardware and feel free to ask me anything about that (or phones). I especially like SSDs. But please do not ask me anything about Networking, programming, command line stuff, or any relatively hard software stuff. I know next to nothing about that.

220s is about the same tier as the UV400 :/. If you want a drive that's just an SSD then either would probably be ok; however, if you do want something a little better a 545s is vastly superior.
