Lukas
Hello there and welcome to Newegg! How are you doing tonight? My name is Lukas, how can I help you?
hi lukas
looking for an internal ssd drive for my Toshiba laptop a505-s6005
Lukas
I'll be happy to help you find something :-)
will this one work ?
Lukas
Let me take a look and I'll let you know!
Also, need to know if the ssd drive comes with the required utility/sw and/or cables to allow me to transfer from the old drive to the new ssd drive
Lukas
Sure thing, I'll let you know :-)
Alrighty
So basically you can fit any 2.5 inch SSD on your laptop
So the sandisk you have with you will work just fine
ok, what about the disk to disk transfer...what is needed ?
Lukas
You will need a tool to clone your hard drive
I can show you a tutorial on how to migrate data to an SSD
do an of these ssd drives come with the tool ?
Lukas
It seems that Sandisk sells a conversion tool
Let me see if other brands include it
check Samsung...I thought somebody told me it comes with one of these vendors
Lukas
Yup
I was looking into it and they indeed have a free data migration software
This would be the Samsung equivalent of the Sandisk SSD
I can't believe the similarity in choices....
do any of these come with the required tool ?
Lukas
It probably does come with a disk
But the tool is available online for free on Samsung website
what else do you need besides the sw ?
Lukas
Not much besides both drives and the tools
The tools will guide you thru the cloning process
can you send me a link to any tutorials on doing this....or link to Samsung tool download ?
I'm thinking either sandisk or Samsung...what do you recommend ?
Lukas
I would recommend Samsung
Always trusted samsung, they make great products
ok, I'm going with the one you sent the link to...question....when I go to the link, it says 66.48 is that right ?
Lukas
It is, just a little bit more pricey
I'm getting the 250gb one....for 77.99...is that the correct price ? free shipping ?
I see...have to be a premier holder for the free shippinh
Lukas
I believe the free shipping is offered only for Premier Customers
Would you be interestred in joining our Premier Club?
no thanks, I don't order that much stuff
Lukas
No problem :-)
why is the Samsung 850 PRO more expensive than the 850 EVO ?
Lukas
The PRO version has faster reading speeds
Hence the higher price
tell me...will it be true that the diff between my original drive and the 850 EVO will be very noticeable....and the diff between the EVO and PRO not as significant ?
not sure if I really need to spend another $50.
Lukas
Not really a big of a step between SSDs, but jumping from a regular HDD to SSD will certainly make a difference
If I were you i'd stick to the EVO, I dont think the 50$ extra are worth it
the laptop is used by my son for surfing the web and google docs for homework
ok, I agree with you....thanks for your help, have a happy hoiday!
Lukas
You have a great holiday too!
thanks.
