Need help in choosing SSD for my Lenovo G580 (2689)

2013-01-28, 9:56 AM

Hi All,

 

Here is my system details:

Type-Model: 2689

HDD: 500GB Seagate Sata II (3Gb/s)

Processor: Intel Core i5 3210M

OS: Windows 8 Enterprise 

 

I need better HDD I/O as I run a lot of virtualization (VMWare) to run multiple OS parallelly, so thinking of moving to SSD.

 

I have following questions:

 

  1. Is there any problem to my warranty in doing so?
  2. Will my laptop support 6Gb/s (Sata III) version of SSD? 

Thanks in advance.

Solved! See the solution

Hi anantanandgupta,

 

Welcome to the Lenovo Community Forums.

 

There should be no problem with the warranty, the HDD is a customer replaceable unit that is easily accessed.  I would greatly suggest to exercise caution when doing so.  Also if there would be a need to have the system serviced you wil have to place the original hdd back in.

 

The laptop will support 6 Gb/s (Sata III). Please see specifications sheet from this link.

 

Hope I answered your question.

Don

Hello,

 

I also have the same question regarding replacing the HHD with a SSD. 

 

I have been looking at this page with states whether or not the SSD is compatible:

 

http://eu.crucial.com/eur/en/compatible-upgrade-for/Lenovo/lenovo-g580#ssdResults

 

Can someone please confirm the best possible SSD here? €100 will be the limit but I do not want to get a SSD that ultimatley does not fit the machine. 

 

Same spec as above, 

 

Cheers,

Michael

Put an SSD in and it will scream, it supports sata 2 but it will still be a huge improvement. Buy a crucial MX300 drive and it comes with free acronis image and storage executive which will use DDR ram caching. My SSD on a G510 runs at 5gb/s read and 3gb/s write actual speeds!!!

Hi Anthony, 

 

Thanks for the reply. 

 

So something along the lines of this perhaps? 

 

https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-MX300-525GB-Internal-Solid/dp/B01IAGSD5O?th=1

 

Would this fit in the laptop in question?

 

Also, nooby question but I presume I will also need to buy an SSD mount case right? (First time changing to SSD)

 

BR

Michael

Yes this would work great and you'll be amazed how fast the laptop becomes.  I have a G510 with a MX100, basically same just a few years older.  The Crucial comes with trueimage to transfer your old data, and this drive has some special features that all ssd's don't always have, like capacitors to guaranteed your data gets written during power loss, and the drive is encrypted too.  Thx
