Replace SSD in Sony Vaio VPC-z1390x...

Hello out there.

I have trouble finding info about the SSD in a Sony Vaio VPC-z1390x laptop. It must be replaced because it's defect. No more warranty. But I don't know if it's 1.8" or 2.5" size SSD. I would also like to know if it's 3 or 6GB/s SATA-plug. Anyone here knows?

Brest regards

Ulrich

The one we have at work has 1.8" drive in it. Looks like yours has the same. But you can be only then shure when you open it and take it out.

As a Little extra info: It's a 512 GB SSD, and according to the Intel Disc Management it's 4*128GB.
I won't see the laptop untill in 1½ weeks, and my better half is impatient to order a/some new SSD('s).
You all "vote" for to open up and see exactly what's in the laptop before ordering any SSD('s)? It must add up to 512GB.

Yes, best if you open it. Keep your best half busy with something till you have your hands on this Sony :) this is the only correct way.
