I bought a ZTC NGFF M.2 SSD 64 GB for more storage in Ubuntu. After I install the Chrome OS, the computer sees that I have increased my storage just fine, but I have a slow download speed and consistent crashes. Sometimes the screen just locks up and stops responding, but most times, the screen goes completely black (although the blue light stays on). From there, I need to long press the Power button in order to reset the Chromebook.
I returned the SSD for a new one on Amazon but the new SSD is doing the exact same thing. If I revert to the stock SSD, all issues disappear. On Amazon, the SSD is quite popular with Acer Chromebooks (c720 version) and there have been no complaints about the issue I have been having so the chances of me getting back-to-back duds seems pretty low.
