Drive upgrade in Storage Devices Posted July 17 10 hours ago, Blue4130 said: Huh? In this post you say it isn't an ssd then it is an ssd.... To the OP... The sas will be faster than the sata HDD because it's a 10k rpm enterprise drive. But it will be louder. Assuming all are the same size, the ssd wins hands down... But you don't mention the price. The ssd is going to cost substantially more than the sata HDD option. The links are to amazon pages. $120 for the nvme ssd, $45 for the sas hdd plus a $20 add in card, and $40 for the sata hdd plus $45 for a 256gb nvme ssd. Noise does not matter to me.
