Any good replacement for my M.2?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey this is an m.2 mvme ssd in a Lenovo ultra book. Im looking for any decent replacement, but it can only be a single side ssd, because there isn't enough room between the drive and the mobo. Speed is key but nothing crazy, i want it to be balanced with longevity. 



At me or quote me, I want to hear your opinion.

Newer 1TB TLC SSDs should be all single sided, so Corsair MP510, HP EX950, Silicon Power P34A80, Team Group MP34, WD SN750. Somewhat slower ones are the HP EX920, Kingston KC2000 and 2500.

Adata uses all sorts of NAND under one model of SSD so quality isnt so stable, the Rocket Q cant compare as it's a QLC drive.

HP EX950

Yeah, in USA it's a steal for 125$ and i agree that its better that the Adata SX8200 Pro that i linked as first option and of course better than Sabrent.

And I was thinking of Sabrent Rocket, not "Q"

... but I'm no expert

Ah, the good ole SM2260. The technical replacement for that drive is the 660p, which is QLC-based. If you want something similar - that is, a client drive - I'd suggest the WD SN550. The 760p is great but difficult to find cheaply. There are some other options from Toshiba too (Exceria or RC/RD500). A client drive, for the uninitiated, is a drive made for business machines incl. laptops, and they'll be single-sided with conservative but reliable and consistent designs. Technically your current drive (6000p, which is basically an enterprise variant of the 600p) fits that profile.


I realize people will suggest a host of other drives. I'm recommending ones that match the one you have but are newer and faster. That's not to say their suggestions are bad, I'm just going to be a bit more nuanced about it. Of the drives suggested above, only the WD SN750 would qualify as a client drive (SN720 is the client version), and it has been on sale lately, but the SN550 is a good alternative if you can get it more cheaply.
