    Best inexpensive (but fast) 240/256GB 7mm SSD?


    So I've had a scare where I discovered I only had 15 GB free on my 128 GB ssd I was able to remove Windows.old and recovered about another 30GB, but there's not much else that I can delete. I think I may be OK, but I want to look into getting a larger drive in the time being in case I end up actually filling up this drive. I honestly never expected to do this!

    What do you think are the best 240/256GB SSDs that are only 7mm thick? that's the thickness I need in order for it to fit in my laptop.

    Thanks.

    I would recommend getting one of these:

    Newegg.com - Corsair Neutron Series GTX CSSD-N240GBGTX-BK 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
    Newegg.com - Crucial M4 CT256M4SSD1CCA 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) with Data Transfer Kit

    The first one is a little more expensive, but performs way better. However, the other one includes a SATA to USB so transferring your files from you old SSD will be a lot easier.

    I like the Samsung and Intel SSD's, they perform well and are reasonably priced (for SSD's, that it).

Hey guys, I've just been playing around with my Sony Vaio Flip with a 256GB SSD and noticed a lot of space was missing. It is my understanding that Windows 8 & 8.1 uses space for recovery files and upgrade files. I guess my concern is whether the space I'm seeing is actually normal or not. Upon...
