Hello, I had a hd failure and was thinking about putting a ssd in the laptop instead of another sata hd. was wondering what i need to look for?

Nathan R.

Nathan R.

Nathan R.

this will work:

that looks pretty decent. Also see the mushkin brand. I have never heard of them and the price wasn't bad. What do you think about them?
Nathan R.
mushkin isn't bad -reliable, if unspectacular
are you saying they are not reliable, not sure what you meant
or not as reliable as some others, I should say
Nathan R.
they are reliable - just not the highest performance or quality
ok. That is what I need to know.
Thank you
Nathan R.
i would pick the crucial over it any day - though I would go for a samsung 850 EVO if I had the room in my budget to do so
ok. so samsung, then crucial. I will look at them and decide what I will buy. not sure how much I want to put into this laptop as it is about 4 years old. I know I could keep the hd as external storage. So we will see.
Again, thank you.
Nathan R.
you're welcome! glad i could help!
Happy Holidays to you and yours!
Nathan R.
you as well!
