I'm looking at wanting to upgrade the 512GB SSD in my Dell XPS laptop and I'm wanting some advice as to what good upgrade options are. It's currently running:
- Toshiba KXG50ZNV512G
- M.2 2280
- PCIe 3.1a Gen 3 x 4 Lane NVMe 1.2.1
- Sequential Read: up to 3,000MB/s
- Sequential Write: up to 2,100MB/s
- Length: 22mm
- Width: 80mm
- Height: 2.23mm
Looking at 1TB options.
I've seen there have been some deals here in the past but nothing current. I've only just started my search, and I've whittled my PB Tech search to the following options in a list (Yes, I know there are a few) :
I'm hoping the shared list can be seen ??
Range in price between $106 to $212.
Is read / write speeds the major factors to consider? I'm also guessing the size, whether the SSD will actually fit?
Does anybody have any other good suggestions within this price range, outside of these options? I also have access to Samsung Education Store as well so potentially better prices there?
Samsung EPP Pricing
970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 SSD - 1TB $111 rather than $250 (too slow read speeds @ 3,500MB/s ?)
980 PRO NVMe M.2 SSD 1TB $143 rather than $280
980 NVMe M.2 SSD 1TB $151 rather than $219 (same as PB Tech here, but too slow read speeds @ 3,500MB/s ?)
980 PRO with Heatsink PCIe 4.0 M.2 $199 rather than $309
990 PRO PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSD $199 rather than $249 ($7 cheaper than PB Tech here)
Thanks in advance!
