Hi, I was loking to get a 1TB ssd for my system and found a Samsung t3 external ssd for almost half price. Is it possible to convert it to an internal ssd? If yes, how do I go about it? Thank you.

Should be.  Open it up and check the connections.... Should be standard SATA and power.


EDIT: Mr Google says it is actually    mSATA  inside... so if you have mSATA port you are good to go.

yh depends, most external drives are just a SATA to usb enclosure, but some higher end ones like samsung M3 or toshiba Canvio are custom made USB hard drives so they are no good for internal.


Are the T3 drives really just Msata enclosures ? that seems kinda cheap of samsung eh ??
