    "Generic" Difference Between Samsung/ Toshiba 128GB SSD


    I'm looking at this model as a 2nd backup moderately inexpensive notebook. I also have about a $100.00 credit at Best Buy which is factoring in my decision. Notebook will be used for very light browsing and downloading. Not worried about size of SSD. I am also aware that the display sucks the big one. Will not need more then the 8GB of RAM.My concern generally lies with the SSD. I am not expecting the best of the best but I believe there might be a difference between Toshiba and Samsung 128GB SSD's though without the model number I can not check. If I had to make an educated guess I would rather see if I can get a Samsung rather then a Toshiba. I asked the question on the notebooks page and this is what they said:

    Lenovo - 330S-15IKB 15.6" Laptop - Intel Core i5 - 8GB Memory - 128GB Solid State Drive - Platinum Gray Model: 81F5004EUS

    QuestionQ:

    Can you please provide the name of the manufacturer and the model number of the 128GB SSD? I realize that they might differ at times depending on availability but some information would help. Thank you. (1 Answer)By bestbuylasvegas 3 days ago

    AnswersA: We use three different 128GB solid state drives within this model. This system may contain either a 128GB SSD made by: Samsung, Liteon or Toshiba. This model is not user upgradable. We recommend you check with your certified technician for the exact drive for a specific serial number.By Lenovo Product Expert 7 hours agoAny thoughts would be appreciated. TIA.

    I have both, actually, and I can't tell the difference.

    Thanks. I guess I could GOOGLE but I wonder if Samsung or Toshiba make more then one model of the the 128GB version. Should you have the time and be so inclined I wonder if you could obtain the model numbers of the Samsung and Toshiba 128GB ssd's that you have. When I go to Best Buy maybe I can match them up with what they are offering and then I could go check for myself online for info regarding that particular model. Thanks.

    The SSD in the 330S-15IKB is PCI-E. It ought to be pretty good, regardless of the manufacturer.

    You could go to BB and go into Device Manager to find which drive is used in the display model. Then buy a laptop in a box, take it home, and discover that it has a different SSD than the BB display model.

    Best of luck.
