Greetings my dears readers:
This is my first post, so be nice with me..!

I have an ASUS ROG G750-JZ and I need to upgrade my HDD (1.5 TB) with a SSD.
I chose a Kingston 480GB HyperX 3K SSD SATA III 2.5'' SH103S3/480G,
So, Has anyone do this before?, I mean, I 'm worried about compatibility issues. :confused: :)

Any advice will be welcome it.

Why not go for a samsung 850, better performance then the kingston imo. i had a 120gb version of the hyperx 3k and it broke on me. got a new one without issues but still..

Hi Wulff,

It could be a possible option, but in Mexico is to hard to get a Samsung SSD for a right price. So Kingston control the market in Latin America.

Thanx a lot for your comment.

the G750/751 series can fit bot sizes of SSD, so no worries. I went for the Crucial MX100 (it has RAIN technology for data protection, which the EVO 850 doesn't have - I deal with some sensitive data so I went with a bit slower and higher reliability).

Hello Maxter, Which one did you choose??

I found this options in Crucial's site:
Crucial BX100 1 TB SATA 6Gb/s 2.5" Internal SSD (CT1000BX100SSD1) or Crucial BX100 500GB SATA 6Gb/s 2.5" Internal SSD [/URL]
CT500BX100SSD1

I'd never hear about Crucial SSD brand, So tell me more about your experience with this SSD.

ThanK you for your comment.

Hi there,
I'm using an 850 EVO 500gb from Samsung, so far it's 100%! Worth every penny.
The Samsung has the RAPID feature, which gives an boost (I felt it...). And also on the Magician Software there are some Security features, and optimization focusing on Performance, Reliability or Capacity.
But to make it work( to install it) I had to open my notebook, put the SSD on the HD slot and the HD on the empty slot. Then, the W8.1 didn't recognize my SSD, so I've changed in the BIOS the interface from IDE to ATA( or the other way around, not sure since it was like 3 months ago), and then Update and Recovery- Recovery- Remove everything and reinstall Windows.
That did the trick, and Windows installed itself to my SSD automatically after that.

I would look for the MX series instead of the BX series. The controller on the MX series is solid. The BX series has a faster controller but it's more like the samsung ones (a bit less reliable), that's why BX is cheaper. Between the options you are looking at, it all depends on how much space you need. I bought the 256GB and put that on Bay 0, and moved my original HDD (1TB) into Bay 1 for game installations. Crucial is a very big brand on RAM memory. A few years ago they have been developing SSD's, which have been making good news because of the reliability and price they offer. I definitely trust crucial more than kingston as a brand. Here, read this information about MX and BX series for Crucial SSDs (http://www.custompcguide.net/the-differences-between-crucial-mx100-vs-m500-and-m550-ssd/).
BTW, I've had this SSD for over a year and it's been flawless. Another factor to keep into consideration is MLC vs TLC (here's some info about it - http://www.micron.com/products/nand-flash/tlc-mlc-and-slc-devices). This is the reason I went away from Samsung (they also make great SSDs, but it all depends on what you need)
