I'm thinking of buying a new SSD for my W700ds for faster booting... and I'm wondering what I should probably go with, since my SSD experiences are rather limited(due to my rather tight budget...).
The only SSDs I've used legitimately: an Intel 160, the X25M. Works beautifully, however a couple of months ago my computer abruptly BSOD'd, and half the data was corrupted on the following reboot with CHKDSK trying to save what it could during boot. I ended up having to reinstall Windows after problems arose with Autodesk Maya and .NET Framework. Not sure if the SSD was responsible... but would not like for that to happen again. I've also had an OCZ Vertex II 60GB, I really wasn't expecting much from that... but I use it daily on my X60T SXGA+, and although it doesn't feel snappy, it's definitely beat having an HDD in there. Plus... that poor thing gets dropped and tossed everywhere all the time.
For boot times and reliability... what do you guys recommend? I'm kinda hoping for 240GB, but I'm not certain I'll be able to afford that.
Trying my hardest to collect Thinkpads, but college and being broke kinda gets in the way. However...
701C, 760, 770, X24, T30, G41, A31p, T43p, T60/61 Frankie, Z61p, X60 SXGA+, W700ds
and yes. I am a bit of a lunatic.
