    G75 with SSD and wireless card

    Hi guys, any advice is appreciated.
    Does anyone have experience about which SSD works well or badly with a G75 G75VW-DS71? My first time getting a SSD, shooting for about 128GB.
    Also for wifi cards, is the default card good enough or should I upgrade it? If so, any particular card to consider or avoid? (Wifi here is really busy and dies sometimes, I dunno if a better wireless card can help.) Thanks!!

    1. there are many good ssds; my preferences are samsung 840 pro, intel 520, plextor m5p, crucial m4. get 240-256gb if possible (higher performance yields than 120-128gb)

    2. i am ok with the default wifi card (i use ethernet most of the times); but to many its performance are considered bad. the compatible ones with bluetooth that i know of are intel 6235 and bigfoot killer wireless-n 1202.

    edit: sorry i forgot; for wifi card, a better alternative is to use usb wireless dongle.

    No problems, just upgrade Although the wifi connection could be better (again, not sure if it's related to the laptop or not).
    1. Yeah I really liked Samsung 840 Pro but I heard its TRIM isn't great. And you convinced me to get the 256GB.
    2. I admit I know nothing about laptop Bluetooth so I dunno if I ever use it. Why is wireless USB adapter better than a new wireless card? Which model do you use, or what's good/bad?

    One quick question, anyone know what the factory/default wifi card is in a G75VW-DS71?

    Thanks for the info guys!

    If you want Bluetooth, Intel 6235, if not, Intel 6300 or check out Killer-N

    A super helpful thread: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread...drops-randomly
    Apparently G75 laptops have Atheros cards? Hmmm.
    I'll probably switch to the Intel 6235 you guys are talking about. But what's this I hear about the new Bluetooth possibly acting weird after installing the Intel?
