looking to buy an ssd for my zenbook

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hi,

i have recently purchased the zenbook ux32vd and I want to upgrade to an ssd. Now, the catch is that I have 3 gift cards in value of 130$ at bestbuy and I can't really spend more than another 100$ on top of that. I also need at least 250GB of space since I don't think that anything less will suffice. Unfortunately, so far I have only found one drive that meets all my criteria and i'm not sure how good this ssd is. This is the one I found:

http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/samsung-samsung-840-series-2-5-250gb-internal-solid-state-drive-mz-7td250bw-mz-7td250bw/10239699.aspx?path=9a86ccd4535bccde6323d7e66e6de01fen02&SearchPageIndex=2

I have noticed there is a "Pro" series and I don't really know what the difference between those is but will this ssd be good for an ultrabook? This is my first SSD and my expectations are a bit high since I read a lot about how amazing those drives apparently are.

thanks in advance
krz.

The pro version is a little bit faster.The samsung you listed is on of the best out there.But I would suggest buying it from newegg instead.
