    Participate in topics is a good feedback to the forum because in that way people can give and receive info or help, despite not everyone can or want to do it. Some people may not comment so often in the forum but it doesn't mean they don't read OCC news, reviews and some forum topics that they consider interesting in order to learn what they need.-

  3. First of all I'd like to thank for all your answers. I've read a lot of reviews of those models mentioned above. Most of them are focus on benchmarks that I don't really care. But there are a few with "real world tests" that I consider more important such as loading time for OS or programs. I also found that in some cases, some reviews favored certain models over others while others reviews do the opposite. However I can see they perform relatively similar, I mean the difference is not like day and night.

    Said that, I think in terms of performance 3 runners up are...
    Sandisk extreme 240gb > Samsung 840 250gb ? Sandisk ultra plus 256gb.

    With a tight price variation, only 4$.

    Considering that once having format the real capacity changes:
    256gb become 238gb
    250gb become 232gb
    240gb become 223gb

    I think I'll grab Sandisk ultra plus 256gb.-


  4. Hi there,
    I'd like to buy a ssd.

    Size? 256, 250 or 240gb.

    I really prefer 256gb to maximize capacity. Actually my main HD is 320gb and have only 46gb free, so I think 256gb would feel a little tight.

    Budget? 150 to 180$

    I was going to buy this one last week at 149.99$ but now that offer is over.
    SanDisk Extreme SSD 240 GB ................................................................. 174$

    Other options:
    SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD 256 GB .............................................................. 170$
    Samsung MZ-7TD250BW 840 Series Solid State Drive (SSD) 250 GB ... 172$
    Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe 240 GB ............................................. 170$
    Mushkin Chronos 240 GB ........................................................................ 170$
    Kingston Digital 240GB SSDNow V300 ..................................................... 175$

    I sorted them in capacity terms, my main concern.

    What would be the best chioce in terms of performance?

    Thanks in advance ;)

     

    pd: If you can find other option at amazon in that range of price and capacity do not hesitate to let me know :)


  5. Talking about fire waepons, I would pick a 9mm beretta, but I must say...

     

    Your first weapon should be your body.

    Try kyokushinkai classes, this style of karate is very demanding.

    After 4 to 6 months of hard training you'll see benefits in your body; improving your cardio, your toughness and your mind.

    I've been practicing it since a year ago, I lost 10 lbs the first 2 months.-


  6. A cousin asked me a favor to check his laptop (Toshiba M645-S4061) and couldn't say NO because he is good boy.

     

    Initially it was reformat hd and reinstall win7. But while doing the backup data to one of my PCs, began to get the message "Windows has detected a hard disk problem" every ten minutes.

     

    HD is obviously dying so I recommended buying another and he said OK.

     

    This is the first time I disassemble a laptop, so google: "how to open toshiba M645" and got this guide: http://www.irisvista...ptop-base-1.htm

     

    Now I know how to arm and disarm it completely.

    But I don't know what HD to buy.

     

    Any sata 2.5" 5400rpm 500gb drive is ok?

     

    For example:

    http://www.amazon.co...ptop+hard+drive

    http://www.amazon.co...ptop+hard+drive

     

    Thanks in advance!
