Size and Cash Limitations

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I have been researching for some time as to what SSD I should purchase for my new laptop. My laptop is the Acer V5-552G-8632 and it is a slim laptop. Because of this I need an SSD that is 7mm thick or thinner. I am more worried about reliability of the drive than outright speed as any SSD will be fast enough for me. Of course the 840 Pro is great and it would fit, but it is at the max of my price range. If I could purchase a laptop cooling pad with the money I save going for a $20 cheaper drive, while still maintaining the same reliability and performance, I would rather go that route. I have looked up the most "reliable" and the "fastest" drives, but most lists are a year old and there are newer drives out there. If you guys could help me out, it would be much appreciated.

I use my laptop for some games, but more for programs such as SolidWorks and AutoCAD for my engineering classes.

Generally the Samung 140 EVO and the Crucial M500 are regarded as the "best" budget SSDs. For laptops the Samsung uses the least power, the Crucial has some enterprise features and has been on sale at very good prices. Samsung has the Samsung toolbox.
