What type of ssd do i need?

20 minutes ago, Raeks said:

Hi i want to upgrade my laptop (Asus fx505dy-bq002t) with an ssd but im not sure which type i should get. Im a noob with this type of stuff so any help would be greatly appreciated. The laptop has hard drive which is 5400 rpm and is very slow. I want to know what types of ssds does this laptop support.

 

Also will the following ssd work?

Thanks

That SSD should work fine. Don't worry about soldering, it's nothing to concern yourself with as your laptop has slots

the m.2 should work, but i think some laptops simply have a soldered ssd, youll have to open it up and check


stuff is cool. stuff that has fancy lighting is cooler. stuff that has fancy lighting and works is the coolest.

 

i game so i know a bit abt gaming tech, not much abt professional tech.

 

writing this as i finish a 3 hour D2 sesh so excuse anything wrong.

soldering is when you melt metal onto a mobo, acts like glue but steel, and unless you have a soldering iron you wont be able to pry it off.

Also important to note: even if you did have a soldering iron, you couldn't just pry it off, get a new one, and solder it back on. The chips are often proprietary from Samsung or SKHynix, and they're usually spread out, along with their storage controller.

 

For all intents and purposes, 'soldered' in this context means 'not user upgradeable'.


Always remember the 80/80 rule of project management. That is, the first 80% of the project takes 80% of the time, and the last 20% of the project takes the other 80% of the time.

Just don't expect miracles. Your data will still be on the HDD and game load times won't change
