    I honestly do not know why the samsung model, despite being a lower model, is more expensive than a ssd m2 2280 from intel! However, I assure you that the intel ssd m2 2280 boasts a much superior performance to the 2.5 'ssd of samsung!

    so this will work without problem?
    @micimix you shouldnt have any issues with it and if any issues would arise just try to upgrade the firmware first then clone your normal OS drive into the new one and just replace it

    Your notebook accepts ssd m2 2280 sata 3 or nvme gen3x4 of at least 512gb! I would opt for the intel 660p for being a 2280 m2!

  • egydiocoelhoegydiocoelho Posts: 20,974ACE Trailblazer
    In this case, only buying and testing! But the ssd m2 2280 of 512GB is already more than enough in my opinion!

    @egydiocoelho probably yes it would also support 2tb nvme because i dont use nvme and dont intend to ( its too expensive) this is the main reason i got 2tb sata for the same price of 1tb nvme so its a win/win situation and the speeds are still awesome pretty good enough for me
