That's an m.2 drive, typically used in laptops. Unless you know you've got the slot for it, it's probably not what you're looking for. You want a 2.5" SSD.

THIS is worth the extras $20 if you're really concerned for longevity: http://a.co/0QyFKFY


Yeah i know it’s an m.2, and my MOBO does have the slot for it, so I guess it comes down to which ones the better brand? Samsung or Crucial?

Samsung drives have the best endurance bar none. Pro if you can afford it, but the Evo line is decent enough. At least better than whatever else is offered out there.

I got a 1TB Crucial MX300 for ~$230 and from everything I've read that's great bang for the buck.

If you want a little more speed look for the Samsung 850 Evo, for which the 512GB version is going for $150 or less right now.

Samsung, no doubt. They are the Western Digital of SSDs- You may get more efficient $/gb going with another brand, but you will be paying with overall quality.

I'm planning on getting a new SSD this week, would this be the best bang for my buck? Or does anyone know of something better?

I mean for $20 more you can get a Samsung Evo so imo that is a s*** deal.

ITT - People who've only ever bought a Samsung SSD (probably literally just one) trying to say other SSD's are s***.

Crucial are just as reliable as Samsung for ssds.
My whole life has been a miserable pig filled ordeal because of you.

I've had SSDs from Intel, Sandisk, Kingston, Crucial, Toshiba, Samsung and whatever the hell is in my current work Dell PC I'm typing on right now. Never had a single issue with an SSDs and I've been using them for 7 years across home and work devices.

I think generally speaking most recognisable brands are now supplying reliable SSDs; and realistically the write cycles are so hard to reach in every-day use, even for heavy users.

I'd personally be scanning the major retailers websites on Friday to see if anything comes up, but generally you can't go particularly wrong these days with an SSD.
