I have written about SSD drives in the past and especially mentioned a Samsung drive as an upgrade. CNet has now identified five SSDs that you should consider for purchase. The price of SSDs has come down so that the premium performance will not cost you a huge amount of money. The five recommended drives include:
- Transcend SSD370S
- Crucial MX200
- Samsung SSD 850 Evo (my personal favorite)
- Samsung SSD 850 Pro
- SanDisk Extreme Pro
It should take you less than an hour to upgrade to a new SSD. Some of the drives come with software to clone your existing drive, but you may want to check out Macrium Reflect Free if the drive you purchase does not.
