    I recently bought and today installed a 128GB SSD in my 2730p - the current exchange rates made this an opportunity that was worth making the most of.

    The tablet isn't suddenly transformed into a blazingly fast system but it is noticeably faster, and applications that don't check for updates load almost instantaneously. It is also nice to not have any drive noise at all.

    Runcore ProIV microSATA 128GB from mydigitaldiscount. Comes with an enclosure and (more useful) a USB adapter and cable. Unfortunately the enclosure won't accept the original 1.8" drive, although if it had been designed a little differently it could have.

    Also comes with Acronis trial software, but if cloning your original drive I recommend deleting that and using EASUS Partition Master, which has a very useful free version.
