best 120/128gb ssd for power consumption

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys gonna upgrade my current 64gb to 120/128gb ssd on my notebook. I have the corsair v64gb and gives a boost of battery life. I need a little more room to put more stuff in it. So I need a recommendations of a new ssd that will give the same or better power consumption than this. There is the corsair v128 in microcenter near me for $140 refurbished and I could get squaretrade for $30 more for 2 years to cover would that be a wise choice?

The SSD isnt what sucks your battery, though. That's the processor's job.

With something running on batteries, every single watt, or heck, even fraction of a watt, matters. An SSD might use ~2W tops which is negligible on desktops but those can translate to an hour or so longer battery life. My CULV notebook uses ~7W browsing the net (mostly text sites so non-Flash heavy) at 15% brightness.

Check out reviews for SSD's. Looking at this review from AnandTech, it appears you might have some difficulty finding an SSD with a good controller that can even match your Corsair Nova's low power consumption let alone exceed it.

yea thanks i took at look at that. It seems like i might try to get the samsung or kingston V+100 or corsair v128. Top three in my head right now. But you think it will be safe to get the refurb corsair v128? and get warranty from squaretrade?

a quick question has anyone bought this from microcenter?
http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0356688

was wondering if I should get that and either buy warranty from MC or Squaretrade since its only 30 days.
