Solid State Hardrives

Anybody have a good source for them? I am looking to buy probably 2 256gb drives, may try to run them on Raid if I can on this Asus G73-SW

Most every year I buy a new laptop but this one has been so good I think I am just going to dump 16gb of ram in it and a couple of SSD's instead.

Who has taken the plunge to windows 8 upgrade for 39.99?
actually i jumped on a upgrade special for 14.99 a few weeks ago.


haven't installed it yet though, thought i would give it more time for bug removal.

I have it ready to go on a bootable USB though

Mine does not qualify for 14.99... I wish is was a full version .. I like the bootable usb installs much quicker

When it comes to an SSD dive,the Intel makes the best. They are the top maker of the NAND chips used in these drives, but they keep the best chips for their own drives and sell the rest off. Furthermore, they have the best firmware for the sandforce controller used in the majority of these drives.

Spend a little extra and go with an Intel 330 or 520 series.

This is correct. The transfer rates on ssds are so ridiculous that RAID is unnoticeable on desktop systems. If you were building a SAN, yes, otherwise it is additional headache for little/no gain.

Welp I have it installed now and the first pic is the 7400rpm drive that I switched from and the 2nd pic is the SSD



Oh, I tried Norton Ghost and 3 or 4 other disk copy software and I could never get it to copy properly.

So you just did a fresh install? It's for the best.

And yeah, you're a dork for using the stickers.
