I have been planning to get the G53SX. After Google-ing around, I discovered that many users had issues installing SSDs as a boot drive for this notebook (also G53SW). I too, plan to have a SSD as a boot drive, but I'm afraid of getting the same problem ( Freezing in boot, unable to detect in BIOS, etc) I read that most Sand Force SSD has this problem on the notebook. Was planning on Corsair F Series at first, but now finding another SSD. Can you guys recommend me some SSD that works/boots fine with the G53SX? Thanks 🙂
I have pretty much bad experience with M4 Crucial 128 GB SSD.
I am owner of G53SX-NH71 laptop .Currently i am not running any OS because my SSD has fail.I try to upgrade laptop with new SSD and i choose Crucial.I can,t boot windows,can't read SSD in BIOS,getting BSOD on boot ...so i think that this SSD can't work together with Seagate Momentus XT 500 GB SATA III (this drive came with laptop inside).
So i try to use SSD only for OS ,second drive will be for games,etc.
Also let me know did somebody had issues with cracked version of Windos 7 x64 Ultimate? Any help will be more than appreciate.
