Sandisk 480GB Extreme 500

I am extremely happy with this drive. Since it is solid state based, there are no moving parts and it is incredibly fast. It is very reliable and does not require a separate power cord to function. An ideal travel drive. Highly recommended.

Transcend SATA III 6Gb/s mSATA SSD

Excellent - Works perfect on my Lenovo Y510P. Had no issues setting it up and cloning my OS image to this. I did mess up the bootsector when I format the old HDD, but it was my fault and I found a very easy and quick fix for that.
