Crucial MX200 M.2 Type 2280SS (Single Sided) 500GB SATA 6Gbps (SATA III) Micron 16nm MLC NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT500MX200SSD4

Pros: Good, fast and reliable drive. I have been running a lot of Crucial drives over the last few years and never had an issue with them (contrary to some Samsung drives I have owned).
Dynamic Write Accel is really a good help, probably why its such a good performer. Marvel controller is tried and tested and trusted.
Does it get warm? Sure, but all SSDs do. Larger 2.5in drives are in metal enclosures for a reason. Sticking this in a laptop usually means the cooling was designed for SSDs, inside a desktop board I dont know, probably need to ensure decent ventilation?

Cons: Its so nice to look at i cant see it because its in my laptop...yeah I cant think of anything CON.

Newegg super saver shipping is....SLOW. :)

Other Thoughts: Running this in a Lenovo Carbon X1 i7 - can also support a PCIe SSD but come on, 700bux for those is crazy!!!

G.SKILL 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C11D-16GSQ

Pros: Running in 2012 MBP Ivy Bridge. Rocket issues installing. All sticks had zero memory errors after 4 hour memtest+.

Cons: None....other then the need for 16GB sticks so I can run 32GB.

Other Thoughts: Where's the 2x16Gb stick coming GSKILL? :)

SATA 2.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fits like a glove, works perfectly in new 2012 MBP 15in. Its a little tight but works fine. No issues at all....about all I can say, its a drive adapter. :)

Cons: It fits like a glove. Just take your time and put it in the machine slowly and watch out for the wifi wires towards the back near the corner....very close!!

Other Thoughts: Now I have an a Sandisk Extreme SSD + Data storage in single machine. Cant beat that!! Never used a CDROM drive anyway.
