Crucial BX500 vs Kingston A400 240GB for old laptop.

I run the same model of laptop but with a different original spec and region. It's a good laptop for future upgrades. It is capable of running an i7 2760QM, 16GB DDR3 RAM, 5GHz Wifi and of course an SSD. Graphic capabiity is limited unless you go eGPU but it depends what you use your laptop for. Thought it was worth mentioning.

New to forums bro. 

You should refrain from making multiple threads of the same subject, your best alternative still is the BX500.

New to forums bro. 

that dosnt make it ok. have you read the community standards?

 

anyway to get this over quickly the BX500 smashes the A400 into small tiny pieces so just get the BX500


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
