What is the best/fastest SSD for a T410 at the moment that i can order from Lenovo?
And if i dont order the ssd from lenovo but buy one from market what is the best that fits in the 410?
T410 only supports 1,8" right? Are there any problems expected with a not lenovo certified ssd?
And is there a list of the original manufacturer of the Lenovo SSD's so i can look for Tests?
Thank you for your help!

Lenovo also use Toshiba and Intel. The 80gb and 160gb SSD's from Lenovo are Intel.
I agree with the sandforce or Intel even if there are some others that are decent as well. Soon the Intel 510 SSD's will be available which i believe might be a better option instead of buying their current X25 models. I found the Intel SSD's to be very realiable as well as fast. Below are some of the specs of the new 510 series.
120GB and 250GB capacities
sustained sequential reads to 500MB/s
sustained sequential writes to 315MB/s
Of course using this SSD in a T410 you won't get all the benefits of these specs like already described because of SATA 2 / 3. I currently use a Intel X-25 G2 SSD, but will switch to a Intel 510 as soon as available.

Big thanks to this very useful explanation!
Are the 1,8" generally slower than the 2,5" drives? Is the C300 1,8" as fast as the 2,5" version?
I think i like the 410s more (i want a very handy size laptop this time but the x series is too small). Are there any other things to regard when comparing the 410 with the 410s?
Thanks for help!

Are there any plans from lenovo to sell the new intel 510 in there T Series? Or to upgrade the T Series with SATA 3 Controllers?
I think the Intel 510 Series will come out only in 2,5", right?

The official T420/520 specs listed by Lenovo show 3 options for an SSD drive:
128gb (manufacturer not listed)
If one wants a SandForce controller, does it mean the buyer MUST buy separately? Any chance the 128gb SSD will have a SandForce controller?
My primary criterion is to get an SSD that will deliver reliable and consistent performance (even at the expense of being the fastest drive). I'm a little wary of buying Intel because of all the recalls and firmware updates they've had to issue to fix problems with their drives. Are these problems behind Intel? Can I trust the reliability and consistency of modern-day intel SSDs? Or should I really focus on getting a SandForce?

Reliability problms are long behnd Intel (early Sandforce had thier own problems). I would let price and availability make teh decison. I have 2 Intel 80GB x-25 Gen2s and have never had an issue.

"Q-ball said: The T410s only supports 1.8" SSDs."
The T410 Support 2,5 SSD!!!!
The HHD comes from fabric with 1.8" + rubber adaptor to 2.5
