Trying to pick my first M.2 SSD

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

(EDIT: Fixed model number)


So I have 2 possible options (leaning towards option 2 because of price), but I am open to suggestions.


Option 1: WD Blue 3D NAND 1TB PC SSD - SATA III 6 Gb/s M.2 2280 Solid State Drive - WDS100T2B0B


Option 2: Crucial P1 1TB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD - CT1000P1SSD8


Thanks in advance for the help.


System Specs:

Acer Nitro 5 AN515-51-522L

Intel Core i5 7300HQ

8GB DDR4-2400 Kingston Ram

GTX 1050 4GB

Make sure you look up your full model # (apparently that is only part of it that you listed). A quick google search reveals there are some models that only support SATA and others have support NVMe, though 2X, so you'll be bottlenecking the drive (not that it matters much for most use cases)
