Looking to upgrade my hard drive samsung ssd 500gb to the top of the line ssd or sata.
Something that will be stable very fast and indestructible.


My w520 has a no front label/info lenovo cd dvd burner drive..can i get better for long term recording and long hour use? Id like top quality recordings no music loss. Any recommendations?

In your (music) case I would buy a CDRW/DVDRW in full size (such as used in a desktop), complete with a powered enclosure for it, to hook up via USB to your W520.
The biggest current drive would be a 2TB SSHD Seagate Firecuda, such as this: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product. ... 6822179110

is Bara cuda the ultimate in hard drives? Better than anything by Wd, samsung or intel. I believe One of the better samsungs offers 10 year warranty.

This is the exact SATA enclosure that I use: http://www.cooldrives.com/index.php/5alexenforsa.html
For a drive look at this: https://www.lifewire.com/best-sata-dvd-burners-832424
I have last year's model Samsung SH222BB/BEBE

If that Firecuda is the best, I don't know, but read Anandtech: http://www.anandtech.com/show/10760/sea ... gb-of-nand
