Default 2010 Value SSD (~$100) Roundup: Kingston and OCZ take on Intel

Two years ago the best SSD you could buy was made by Intel and it cost $7.44 per GB of MLC NAND. Today Intel is actually the value leader. The 80GB X25-M G2 will set you back $205 at Newegg, or $2.56 per GB. The performance crown now belongs to companies like Micron and SandForce. Although Intel hopes to have performance leadership once more with its 25nm SSDs due out in Q4, the priorities have shifted. Intelís focus is on bringing SSDs to the mainstream; it wants a bigger slice of the HDD pie. At the end of the day, thatís where the money is.

At just over $200 thatís affordable enough for high end notebooks and desktops but what about more mainstream price points? For many the $99 mark is key. Luckily as SSDs have gotten faster, a new breed of small, affordable SSDs have emerged right around the $100 mark. Today weíre going to take a look at three of those devices.
