Ah, I knew it would be something simple. I never thought to look at drive height. Is one for a laptop and one for a desktop or something?

And the data transfer kit is only necessary if I'm switching from an HDD to an SSD, right?
 


Yeah, the 7mm is for laptops.



Right. Or you can use it if you're switching from another SSD.

Slight elaboration on that statement :) ; It's for some laptops. most standard sized/larger sized laptops are 9mm. The ultrabooks and thin laptops sometimes need 7.
If you have a 9mm slot, you can put a 7mm drive in there, but not the other way around. :)
 
Most pc cases have 3.5" drive bays to insert hard disk drives into.
SSDs are smaller than HDDs so you need an adapter so that they will fit securely in the drive bay.

If you have a newer pc case it may have drive bays for SSDs as well as HDDs in which case you don’t need an adapter.
 



Get the first one. It has the 3.5 adapter, so you'd think it'd cost more, but apparently due to a newegg sale its cheaper. Same drive, just an extra part that you probably need anyway, and if not can go in the spare parts box.
