Replacing SSD on MBP... Best solution?

I currently have a 240GB SSD in my MBP, and I want to replace it with a 500GB SSD. I have my OS X partition backed up with Boot Camp, but what's the best way to handle transferring over my Windows partition?

Use Winclone (you can probably use an older free version if you don't want to pay) to clone the Windows partiton to the new drive.

It's as easy as 240GB drive -> external drive -> 500GB drive

Or 240GB drive -> 500GB drive if you have/get an external drive enclosure.
