Tiger Direct is what I use most often. Never a problem with them. They have the Samsung (not pro) on sale now.... along with copies of Windows7 HP and Pro!

How are you going to install the second drive? Normally a laptop has room for one drive, to add a second you need to remove the dvd burner and use a special caddy.

I would be very careful buying a used ssd drive off evil bay.

Move on people! Friends sandforce's performance issues are surely a thing of the past. I have been using the latest ones of these & haven't had a single issue so far. I am sure there would be many more who like me who have had similar good experiences.

Still, the user reviews of SSDs with Sandforce controllers are lower than the ones with other controllers.

I bought an Intel 520 last year when I was building this rig and it worked for a day and went bad. I returned it and got a replacement, and it went bad in a day. They have a Sandforce controller that Intel spent 18 months working on and they still couldn't fix all of the bugs in it. It's not a performance issue, it's a reliability issue! There is no reason to buy a Sandforce based drive these days because they aren't ANY faster than the other drives out there. Sure you might be able to get one for $80-90 but did you ever wonder why they were that cheap?

Also don't forget to Turn-Off Windows Defragmentation for the SSD drive as I heard it could hurt the drive
