Yeah, they use good controllers. Honestly, if your bro can get two 256 gb drives for around $300, that would probably be your best bet. I'd look for Crucial m4 and Samsung 830. There are other decent ones, but those have been the most reliable from what I've been reading from people who have purchased them.

Black Friday is coming soon, how long is your brother going to be in the United States?

A question:

Can the SSD be installed beside the HDD, or the HDD must be removed? Can the HDD sunk into being a secondary storage device?

My weekly rant!

27th May 1965: Over 16,000 days.

"For a moment there I returned to my youth, the early youth, when all nice illusions were gathered together. Then life came and, like a strong wind, blew them away, one by one. What we call happiness is sometimes the accordance between our life and circumstances, our biography and history, our personal aspirations and historical currents. If I look at things that way, I can say: I was born too early to be happy. But birth is one of the many things we do not get to choose. It is part of our destiny."

In a desktop, you can install them side by side.

In a laptop you can as well, but it's not such an easy task and some concessions need to be made. I removed the DVD drive out of my laptop, bought a cheap "caddy" and used that to move my original hard drive into that slot. Then I put the new SSD into the original hard drive's place and I have a laptop with two hard drives and no DVD drive.

no you juice tard, they're the size of laptop drives and work the same way as sata drives. Course they come with 3.5 clips so they can fit on desktops.

At the touch of her lips it grew long and swollen. He gasped as she squeezed and pulled expertly. It was the best balloon giraffe he'd seen.
