We know you’ve got questions, and if you’re brave enough to ask the world for answers, here’s the outlet to do so. This week’s Ask Engadget inquiry is coming to us from Aaron, who was inspired by our Primed article on SSDs to buy one of his own. If you’re looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

“I’ve really been thinking about upgrading to an SSD. Speed is a big plus and I’d prefer a SATA 3.0, but I’m concerned about reliability and keeping my budget to around $150. What SSDs are Engadget readers using and what would you recommend? Thanks!”

So come on people, is there a beloved SSD that you’d love everyone to use? Do you prefer Crucial to Super Talent? Can you really upgrade to a decently-sized SSD for under $200? Help a brother out by shouting loudly and proudly (inside voices only, please) in the comments below.

Ask Engadget: best sub-$150 SSD? originally appeared on Engadget on Sat, 17 Dec 2011 22:00:00 EDT. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
