    Hello, I own HP Envy 17-nxxx series and I want to upgrade my laptop by ~~120 GB SDD. I have few questions to you guys ;)

    1. What SDD should I pick? (budget one, idc about pro top notch speeds).
    2. What Caddy & SATA cable should I chose?

    BTW guys I'm living in Poland so I need to get those parts here :mad::(

    Look into the Transcend SSD370 series SSD devices.

    Regarding the drive caddy, you'll have to see if the laptop already comes with one or you have to buy one.

    I seriously doubt that an universal caddy will work.

    I think you must get one that fits specifically for HP Envy.

    What is the exact model of your laptop?

    If you laptop has a 7/9.5/12.5mm optical drive that is removeable, you can most likely purchase a caddy to replace that optical drive with a hard drive.

    As for the SSD choice, the Sandisk Ultra II and SSD Plus series are great budget oriented SSDs that are no slouch in the performance department.

    I need to have optical drive @Thomas The Train. But as you can see on this video

    There is space for 2nd HDD/SSD.
