mSATA SSD Update my Thinkpad x220i

Recommended Posts

After I checked Renice X3 (SF1222) mSATA SSD User Review, I decided to buy Renice X3 mSATA 120GB to update my X220i, but now MyDigitalDiscount is out of stock. I contacted Renice and brought this SSD from b2cit.com. I attached detailed update process, hope it can give you some instruction if you have not update x220i before.

I feel pretty confident you work for Renice, but the post is actually interesting so we'll let it slide. We don't prohibit mfgs or retailers from posting here - just full disclosure please.

Incidentally, I am curious as to what these retail for and whether or not you benched other mSATA SSDs in that machine.

Hi Brain

I did not set up well the Hyperlink in my post, maybe you think i am the guy from the Renice, now i revised the Hyperlink in my post , you can check that, i just bought it after checking the reviews.

tamas,

How long did b2cit take to ship the Renice to you? And how much did shipping cost? Like you, I'm having difficulty finding mSata drives for my Thinkpad.

i bought mSATA drive from b2cit USD299.90( 120GB) Including the DHL Shipping cost and took 3 days shipping to me
