Too small for me, though. 😞 I need at least 128GB, though more would
be better.

Re: notebook SSD drives

I want to say I was getting 128 for 300 or so? But this was 6 or 8 months
ago, before prices came down. Cheapest around for sure (and we are CDW
customers, and I've not liked Dell for a while).

Re: notebook SSD drives

You mean the one I posted to your general info post? Not a big deal, just
joking. 🙂

Should do as long as there is a driver for the controller technology,
however the performance and longevity of the SSD will depend upon the
command set that the driver supports - as an example:

😞
I have a 2TB external drive which I take around.

I got a 160GB drive and though small, it just means that I am a little
more careful about what I store on my notebook. It's practical enough
for my purposes.

Yes, and I know you were just joking. I just wanted you to know it had
been deleted. : )

I have one of those in my laptop and work desktop. They seem plenty
fast enough for me, and my laptop boots in like 11 seconds with win7 on
it... 😄

Also, the kingston laptop kits come with a cool little enclosure that
you can throw your old 2.5" drive in and use as an external USB drive.
It seems to run the platter drive fine off of USB power too!
