So my new M14 R2 has the 240GB mSATA and the 1TB HDD.
I am looking to replace the HDD with an SSD...
So the Samsung 250GB 840 look to be the best bang for my buck, but before I order this has anyone installed other brands/sizes?
I'm not looking to store music or movies this rig will purely for gaming.
Thanks for your help.

Samsung hands down, most reliable and everything they make is awesome. The crucial m4 is also another awesome ssd if you want to save a Lil bit, but ssd prices are coming down and Samsung ssd are pretty close to crucial so I'd go Samsung.

My Vertex 4's have been really good but I'm going to start going for the Samsung 840's I think.

You can put a bigger mSata SSD in there instead of the 32Gb. I think the Crucial 240Gb is the one to go for. I will be doing this for my girlfriends M14x.
