Sony :: 128GB SSD (MLC) Vs 320GB 7200rpm In Z690

Feb 4, 2009

which drive is the better choice between the 128GB SSD (MLC) vs 320GB 7200rpm options currenlty on the Z690.

I've heard the MLC SSD's are fast in certain areas, but arent always the best options vs the 7200rpm drives yet... and have some issues with multi-tasking, etc. So basically, my question is how is the 128GB Samsung MLC rated vs the 7200rpm drives Sony uses?

Sony :: 128GB SSD Vs 500GB 5400 HDD

Oct 28, 2009

I am trying to decide between the following 2 Z's which are approx. the same price.

Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 2.53GHz / 4GB RAM / 128GB SSD / DVD±R/RW / Hybrid Graphics / 802.11AGN / WWAN / Bluetooth / GPS / Webcam / Windows 7 Professional [ SON VGNZ880GB ]

Intel Core 2 Duo P8800 2.66GHz / 4GB RAM / 500GB HD / DVD±R/RW / Hybrid Graphics / 802.11AGN / WWAN / Bluetooth / GPS / Webcam / Windows 7 Professional [ SON VGNZ850GB ]

I do everyday tasks like MS office,MS Streets, and use approx. 10GB for my multimedia files.

My first question is, will I notice the difference in speed? Will be the SSD with P8700 faster than the HDD 5400 RPM with P8800 in terms of boot,read-write documents etc?

If I go with the 128 GB SSD, how much free space can I expect to have on the drive after W7 ?

Sony :: Upgrading An FZ11Z With A 500GB Hard Drive

Feb 1, 2009

I've worked out the physical process of replacing the installed 200GB 2.5 inch Hard Drive to a 500GB Werstern Digital 500GB 2.5 inch Hard Drive. Overall it looks pretty easy. It's what happens once the drive is fitted and I turn on the laptop that I'm a bit worried about.

Do I just load the recovery discs as usual or is there something I need to do in BIOS? Also will the motherboard cope with a 500GB Hard Drive?

Jan 29, 2009

Just got it and installed it - still playing around.

Steps to installation - existing HD WD 320GB 7200 (a truely good and silent drive)
New SSD - G.Skill 256GB SSD

1.Sell one small offspring to come up with the cash.
2.I cleaned up my HD - took all the stuff I did not use out
3.CCleaned it
4.Did the last defrag I should ever do
5.Installed the SSD in my Roswill USB case and connected to my M1330
6.Initialized the drive
7.Formated the drive
8.Downloaded the latest build of Acronis 2009
9.Cloned the HD to the SSD
10.Booted up quickly with no issues.
Works great. Boots fast.Everything "pops".
I will miss little Bobby but he kept touching my stuff.
By the way 8 months and no Nvidia issues.

Dell :: Using A 256GB SDD (Part #J246M) In A Mac?

Jul 6, 2009

I have a Studio XPS 13 with the 256GB SSD option and absolutely love it.

My wife uses a Mac... one of the new 13" Macbook Pro's. It came with a 160GB 5400RPM drive but she needs more room and after seeing my XPS fly with the SSD she has decided that she just has to have an SSD.

Looking out on the Dell website I see that they sell the 256GB Dell branded SSD for under $500 which seems like a really good deal but I'm not sure if it will work in the MBP .....

Dell :: How Does 256GB Encrypted SSD Work?

Jan 8, 2010

I have an E4300 coming today with a 256GB Encrypted Mobility SSD in it.

I had always thought that the encryption was totally SSD-based. But in thinking about it, if that was the case, then I could move the SSD to another notebook and it would still work, since the encryption is IN the SSD.

So, there must be something (TPM, etc) that ties the encrypted SSD to the notebook.

HP/Compaq :: 7200rpm

Feb 7, 2009

I upgraded the hdds in my DV9543 to 7200rpm's. I didn't copy anything onto the new drives I simply installed Vista onto them, after trying several times unsuccessfully to install XP.

The problem is windows doesnt see the 2nd drive when I go to my computer it only shows one of the drives. Has anyone ever experienced this? Anyone know how to fix it?

I tried to do a search but couldn't find anything, I thought I would try here before HP customer service I have asked them a few questions before and it seems to me that they are reading from a script or something and wouldn't be able to help if they didn't have a manual.

Dell :: Which SSD Is Used For 256GB Encrypted Mobility SSD In E4300?

Jan 3, 2010

Just picked up a (seemingly) great deal on an E4300 from the Outlet with a 256GB Encrypted Mobility SSD for about $1100, and wondered which SSD actually comes with it? I'm hoping it's at least a 2nd Generation Samsung and not some old 1st Gen Samsung that's slow as molasses!

what I can safely do with my new 17rse? I'd like to do something along the lines of putting a 32gb mSata (no option pre-purchase) as cache for my HDD but does this become pointless if I'd also like to add a larger 256gb SSD as a primary drive with OS on it?

Dell :: Upgrading From A 5400rpm Hdd To A 7200rpm Hdd

Jul 10, 2009

I skimped a little on the hard drive when I ordered my xps1640. Since then I have set up raid on my desk top & notice a huge improvement. Since doing that my xps has started to seem very sluggish. Would there be much of a noticeable speed increase taking out my xps 5400rpm hdd & replacing with a 7200rpm hdd?

Dell :: NO 7200RPM On I1720 = On Crack

Sep 19, 2007

I'm trying to grasp this one... but my mind can not wrap around it, so here goes. I just got off the phone with Dell University sales and talked to the rep. Since the i1720 came out in July I have spec'ed and spec'ed and seen that IT DOES NOT COME WITH OR HAVE OFFERED A 7200RPM HD.

I have a e1705, my dad has one, my girlfriend has one, and my uncle has one... all on my recommendation. I have dabbled/worked in the IT industry since I was 10 and I can't believe that this speed RPM is not offered.

5400RPM existed clear back in 1994.

I just bought my GF a 7200RPM 7k200 200GB Hitachi HD with 16mb of cache for her e1705 from NewEgg.

When we ordered all of our e1705's we intentionally ordered them with the cheapest HD's cause we ordered 7k100 7200RPM 100GB Hitachi's from Froogle searches.

Am I the only one that can't wrap his/her mind around this one....

Dell :: Segate 250G 7200RPM -- Gets Too Hot

Jun 20, 2009

I am hating this drive big time.. performance is good, but the heat on left side of the palm rest is unberable. After few mins of placing the palm on left hand rest it is burning my veins... I still feel the burn sensation for long time even after taking the hand out.

All the guys w/ Segate 250G 7200rpm experience the same? I have 2 E6400s, both have same HD, same heat problem. Seems like a bad designed drive... probably have to start looking at SSDs, but damn those too expensive!
