Id love to go SSD but even 256 gig, is just meeting the lower limit. Also opening up my laptop again scares me, broke a huge sweat putting paste on the CPU.

Get a 128 or 256Gb M.2 then just a 512Gb 2.5" and you're near the 1tb that came with it only it'll be actually FAST

I have a samsung 840pro 256gb and an Intel 520 series 256gb currently but I'm considering ordering a nice big m.2 drive. I can't find ANY valid information comparing the speeds so I really don't know which drive I'd want to use as the boot/primary

I'm using Sandisk Ultra Plus SSD 256GB on y510p.

It's super fast and cheaper than samsung 840pro.

From what i read on the webs I may or may not have the the m.2 slot on my y510p. Will I have to open it up to find out?

They will both fit in the internal bay? Can I add on the M.2 to the existing drive? I did not see extra SATA ports when I opened up my y510p

M.2 drive has it's own special slot. Before you try to be an internet smart guy you should actually READ what a person is telling you. I never said anything about using additional SATA. M.2

Yes, I googled it after I posted. My bad. You sound confident the slot will be there?

You need to check if your y510p has a ssd slot, as there are rumours of some y510p's not having the ssd slot. Mine does have the slot.

I just gave my wife my Y510p (GT755m SLI) and put a Corsair ForceGT 240GB I got as a refurb from MicroCenter in. I loaded Win7 Pro (we have much hate for 8), and I put the 1GB hybrid Seagate in my new (to me) Y580. The Corsair screams in the Y510p and I had no issues installing and configuring it (in Legacy mode of course).

If I replaced my hdd with an 500GB ssd, would there be any point in keeping the 24GB ssd in my laptop? I can't imagine express cache would have any effect with the primary drive being the same speed as the caching drive...

I replaced the 1TB HD to 256 Samsung 840 Pro. Never regret it.

Difference in loading time and overall snappiness are night and day.

I tried the Hynix mStat that came with my AW 18, but after some time (2Weeks) I changed it to a Crucial M550 mStat and never looked back

I also own a Samsung 840Pro, I would say almost same lvl of performance!

I think you need replance one SSD . 64GB is good for Windows running . you can remove DVD device and put SSD via bay .

After , I have 5s to boot from BIOS to windows 8.1 Pro .

Hope , it help

I got the 120gb super cache 2 from mydigital ssd and everything is running fast. i like that i was able to keep my 1tb hdd and install windows on the ssd. I might use the 24gb ssd in an enclosure for a fast usb 3.0 device.

I have the lenovo y510p.

Boot times are not its best point.

What are people's recommendations on a good ssd?

Thanks!

Lets say you have files. You also have the need for speed. Nothing like good overkill: Amazon.com: Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 1TB 2.5-Inch SATA III Single Unit Version Internal Solid State Drive MZ-7TE1T0BW: Computers & Accessories

I would recommended the Samsung SSD. I'm using the PRO/EVO on different devices and they are awesome.
