Re: mSata SSD options for x220

[ Edited ]

You have to have Windows as active system in order to test the hardware clearly. The best choice to test SSD related features is to boot from it. In dual boot environment, for example. I don't know about the boot possibility with esata port connected drive, but it's impossible to boot from the external usb hdd with Rescue&Recovery installed on it. Also you can't boot into Windows from usb stick without special tricks.

Note, there are several test tools for hdd on Lenovo support site, but unfortunately Ubuntu version is absent.

Re: mSata SSD options for x220

Ok, I installed win7 professional 64bit and a bunch of lenovo drivers on my Nocti SSD yesterday. It seems to work well.


Where can I find this toolbox?


I just installed a thing which I think is called "Lenovo Solution Center" and run some self test. Here is the result: http://pastehtml.com/view/bu6kcbepg.html (its half in German an "Bestanden" means "passed and everything is okay")

And here is some system information log: http://pastehtml.com/view/bu6kv0f3o.html

MeraX,
thank you. If you've passed the full storage test you're lucky.

Crucial/Micron is releasing their M4 in mSATA. Too bad our mSATA slots only support SATA 3Gbps

You beat me to it :smileyhappy: I wonder if there's a noticeable performance advantage to the M4 mSATA over the intel 310 mSATA.

 

Also, I'm in the market for an SSD mSATA, should I go with the abovementioned M4, intel 310, or wait for a higher capacity intel 313 mSATA (Hawley Creek)? Is there ever going to be a 80GB+ intel 313 mSATA? I've seen it in their plan (which was scheduled for Q3 2011) and I can wait a bit more if the advantage is noticeable in every day usage.

 

Sorry for being a n00b on the topic :smileyhappy:
