    Hi I'm new to the forum and was wondering if people can give me advice on which solid state hard drive to buy for my Toshiba Portege R700 laptop?

    I've heard a number of drives can give booting problems such as certain Ocz and Corsair models.

    Ideally I'm looking for around 256 GB of storage space; any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks :)

    Hi

    You can buy any SSD drive which supports the SATA interface.
    It could be possible that you will need to update the firmware but this should be checked with the SSD drive manufacturer

    Yes you can use any 2.5" SATA SSD but be aware that SSD's use an interface designed for mechanical HDD's so there are some compatibility issues which can be resolved by SSD firmware updates.
