Installing a micro SSD on Y580

#1 Post by house kitten » Wed Sep 05, 2012 9:01 am

I just bought a Lenovo Y580 and from what I have heard the hard drive stinks. My plan is to get a MSSD and install the OS on it and keep the 750GB drive for data etc. Any ideas what drive i should get and how I go about installing?

All hard drives stink. I don't think there is anything worse about the performance of the stock Y580 drive than any other hard drive.

For mSATA SSDs, I like the Mushkin Atlas series.
Current models/upgrades:
T410 2518X01- 8GB, Corsair Force GT 120GB
T410s 2901A3U- 8GB, Intel 6300 WiFi, Crucial m4 256GB w/ mSATA>microSATA adapter
T420s 4174PPU- 16GB, Intel 520 180GB, Crucial M550 512GB mSATA, Intel 6300 WiFi
and a stack of classics in storage

I would buy on price and how much space you need.
