Top small internal drives

OCZ Agility 3 CNET rating: 3.5 stars out

OCZ Agility 3

CNET rating: 3.5 stars out of 5 (Very good)

The good: The OCZ Agility 3 solid-state drive supports SATA 6Gbps and offers fast performance. The drive works in any SATA-based storage application and is relatively affordable.

The bad: The OCZ Agility 3, though fast, is noticeably slower than other SATA 6Gbps SSDs without being proportionaly cheaper. It's capped at only 240GB, takes a long time to format, and doesn't come with a drive bay converter to fit in a place of a 3.5-inch hard drive.

The cost: $159.99 to $190.00

The bottom line: An especially good option for people who want a relatively inexpensive ILC for shooting video, the Sony Alpha NEX-5N's photo quality's about the same as its cheaper sibling's.

If you're thinking you need a new computer, what you need might just be a new internal storage device to make your computer good as new, or maybe even better. This is especially true if you have a system (be it a laptop or desktop, running Mac OS or Windows) that's 3 or 4 years old and uses an SATA hard drive as its main internal storage device. Most existing computers fit this category, by the way. Here are our top internal drives that would make a great replacement in your existing machine. ©2014 CBS Interactive Inc., a CBS Company.
