ASUS S56CA-BH51-CB Ultrabook Intel Core i5 3317U (1.70 GHz) 750 GB HDD 24 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 4000 Shared memory 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The laptop is able to run games on unreal engine 3 smoothly, which is what I wanted; so for the price I paid (480$CAD), its a very good value.

The keyboard layout is ISO (french-canadian labellings, exactly what I wanted) and the numpad is very nice to have. Good amount of I/O ports (VGA is there if you need old interface support).

SSD caching is great, but I don't have a reference to compare with, so I cannot tell the amplitude of the difference it makes, but the response time is good.

Cons: none so far.

Intel 320 Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This SSD works flawlessly. The performance score is a little lower than other brand. I chose this one since since it is installed in my business computer and Intel 320 Series SSD are more reliable.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: The reliability was computed based on the newegg review statistics (do it yourself before you buy any SSD).

Crucial M4 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I know that buying a SSD is somewhat playing lottery, but I must do a review because I am in the winner (because ALL the looser do write a review!). This SSD was one of the least defective on the market (based on newegg reviews) and I recommend it for that reason.

Very fast for the money. Make sure your mobo supports SATA III for maximum performance.

Cons: None so far...
