Intel X25-M Retail Surprise While OCZ and Crucial Lead the Bestselling SSD Rankings For Week Ending February 5, 2011

At the top of the rankings, we continue to see some good deals from OCZ Vertex and Crucial. The big surprise this week is actually outside of the top ten. For several weeks, we recommended the OEM version of the Intel 160GB SSD X25-M, (currently ranked #7) on our list because it was selling for less than the retail version. Well as of right now, the retail version is cheaper than the OEM. The retail version is identical to the OEM, but gives you fancier packaging and a bracket for use in 3.5″ slots. Now is a great time to buy the Intel 160GB, but make sure to get the right one. As prices change incredibly rapidly, you should probably check both links before buying. We created an additional slot on this week’s rankings so that you can take advantage of the deal. Click through for the full list.
