Default Asus Laptop SSD upgrade!!

Hello everyone!

With solid state prices on the decline I am thinking of investing in one for my laptop. I was wondering if anyone here could suggest a ssd that they have had good experiences with. I am looking for something ove 200gb with over 500 read write. I have been looking online, but can't really decide what to go with. Not knowing the reliability of different companies, who to avoid for instance, etc...

Please give me hand, also needs to be Sata 3, my laptop is new so I am assuming the connection is sata 3, If anyone can suggest a way for me to confirm.


The laptop is an ASUS u-56e bbl6

Are there 2 HDD bays in it? I can't seem to find anything on it, though I'm doubting there would be. So you want to entirely replace the HDD and go to SSD only? Here's my suggestion:

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC256D/AM 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Desktop Upgrade Kit

Do you have an external drive for media/docs? If not, do you want a larger SSD?
