Looking for a M.2 2242 SSD

I have a lenovo Y510P and I would like to upgrade that ridiculous 24Gb SSD thats inside to something decent enough to install windows and a couple of programs, so that I can keep the 1 Tb HDD for mass storage. I don't know anything about these drives and also nothing about the different retailers. I can't find any comparative reviews for the specific M.2 2242 model that I need.

Does anyone have any suggestion or a specific SSD that did it for them ? I'd like to get away under 125$ for at least 120Gb, ideally 250 gb and more if even possible. Just got that Crucial 2.5" 250Gb SSD by mistake, not knowing there were different types of SSD on the market, and I don't want to swap 1 Tb for 250 Gb ...
