I have to replace the existing HDD in my Sony VAIO VPCEH3AEN with an SSD. A scan with Crucial Scanner by crucial.com suggests, but naturally, Crucial BX300 480 GB SATA SSD and it is a confirmed compatible drive.
Secondly, another website shows Samsung EVO 850 500GB SATA-III SSD as compatible with the laptop.
To be very brief, the Crucial SSD has significantly faster
sequential reads and writes, but the Samsung SSD has significantly faster
random reads and writes.
I would like to go for Samsung SSD that suits my usage pattern better I but could not confirm its compatibility by Googling. Contacted manufacturer for compatibility, and they refused to reply. Note that but drives have 7mm height and 9.5 mm connector that will fit-in the laptop.
My question, does the Sony VAIO VPCEH3AEN laptop support SATA-III SSD?
