I have the above laptop. It came with a standard 2.5 1TB HDD but I would like to add a 1TB SSD. It is my understanding that this is supported but I have the following queries:-
- do I go for SATA or NVME? I have done some research on various forums including Acer's and it's not clear which one would be better for me. I wanted to go for the following SSD https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07J2Q4SWZ/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&psc=1 but on perusal of the crucial website I was advised this would not be compatible. However, UserBenchmark shows that I can get an NVME.
- The laptop has 1x Link width so it appears the above would work but I have seen on the forums that people have managed it. Can you please advise that my choice from Crucial would be suitable and if not why not? Would the following be a viable alternative - https://www.amazon.co.uk/WD-Blue-NAND-Internal-SATA/dp/B073SB2MXT/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1550100713&sr=8-3&keywords=ssd+m.2+1tb
I would like to move my OS and some games onto the HDD so speed is crucial for me. I am grateful for any help
