I want to upgrade to a SSD in my CF-31, Does anyone know what series Intel SSD that Panasonic uses, I would like a larger one than they sell at 256Gb, I want 400 to 500Gb, and I also don't understand the big price difference in the Panasonic SSD "Kit" at over $800 vs the non ToughBook Intel SSDs @ half the price for a larger drive, does anyone know what is in the supposed "Kit" for the Toughbook.

Do i need the 6Mbit SSD, or is the 3Mbit good enough, my CF-31 uses/has 8Gb of DDR3 1333 / 10600 memory & has a 2.1G processor, so I am not sure what the buss speed is for the drives.

Also with a SSD do you use the original or replacement caddy, or does the SSD unit just go in by itself?

Thanks, Ray

Welcome to the Toughbook Forum
When you buy the "kit" you are getting the SSD and the caddy amd also its like going to buy car parts...if you buy OEM partsthey cost 2-3 times more than non-OEM parts
You need the caddy for any drive you put in it .The price you got "$800.00" was that a price you got when you were ordering the 31 or after you got it. Why I ask is the price to me sounds cheap.

I just checked the price online ...$800.00 sounds cheap compared to this one. I know a new SSD the size you want will cost about $550.00 from newegg.

Thanks for the reply, that price was from the vendor I bought the CF-31 from, they have been real good on the other upgrades i bought, after the delivery of the 31, i just thought it sounded a little high, but if it is just a plug in unit I guess it is not so bad.:grin:
