This is a noob question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I know this is a noob question, but I'm wondering if I got the wrong SSD. I recently purchased a Crucial c300 128 Hard Drive. I bought the 2.5" drive. When reading through the instructions, they only only mention notebooks. I wanted this for my desktop. Is this the wrong SSD?

Nope. You got the right one. SSD's are usually in 2.5" drive form.

Hi.

The C300 128GB will work wonderfully in a desktop.

[edit]

If it is this one (one the right), you're golden.

no its actually one of the best tier ssd's, the desktop mounting is usually done via an adapter kit

just an example in case your tower doesnt have a 2.5 inch kit / ability...

or similar will work

Depends on what case you have. Some come with a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter. Most cases, however, will only fit 3.5" HDD.
No worries. If you don't have an adapter, just buy one.

I have the one on the right

I was just worried when the instructions mentioned nothing about desktops.

I believe my case came with a 2.5" bay.
