Windows 7: Choose between 2 new SSDs.

Choose between 2 new SSDs.

I just bought a new ultrabook...an HP Envy 4t. I'm looking for a thin 7mm SSD to put in it, and I've narrowed my choices down to 2. I understand one comes with a data transfer kit and one doesn't, and there's a slight difference in capacity. That being said, and "stated drive performance numbers" taken with a grain of salt, which drive would you go with? I'm leaning towards the Corsair, but I do have a regular 9.5mm version of the Crucial M4 that does well.

best advice: capacity and data transfer rates should be your primary concern. the fact that you're buying name brand is an excellent decision......

I have 4 SSDs already, my questioning was on the fact I was limited to choosing a 7mm one...which cuts down the available choices quite a bit.

I ended up listening to my impatience, and I ordered the Corsair drive, if for no other reason than to compare it to my existing 3 Crucial drives and one OCZ.

It's too late it seems, but the OEM version of the Samsung 830 is also 7mm.......just sayin lol. Let us know how the Corsair works for you, they usually make high quality products!

I guess every Samsung I looked at was retail, because they were 9.5mm. I checked my two usuals...Newegg online and MicroCenter in person. Good to know though, in case I change my mind.

Samsung has 3 models to choose from, OEM, Notebook upgrade kit, and Desktop Upgrade Kit. The desktop kit has a spacer on it, making it 9.5mm I believe, the notebook and OEM are both sans-spacer.
