I chose to dremel.Printed out an Xray of the back and sized it about the size of my SP3, drew some guidelines and used a rotary cutting disc.

I highly recommend doing this in an open area not inside as the metal dust was all over every thing in my room.Once I had the door cutout I took out the old drive and added this, placed the cut out back and cut out a slightly larger rectangle from a label sheet and placed the label over top to hold the door in place and close off the door.Reinstalled Windows 10 Pro from a USB drive and has been up and running for weeks.

However, the product is perfect and working absolutely fine.

This will not work in a standard 2.5 inch laptop disk socket, but if you have an mSATA it's great.

Editorial Reviews

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

It depends on what you are looking for. Let's go over the reasons why buying this internal solid state drive now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. This internal solid state drive has positive reviews on the internet

Reading on Phone

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This internal solid state drive has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this internal solid state drive more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See Reviews on AmazonSee Reviews on Amazon

2. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

Price Chart

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has not changed recently, which means that it has steady and healthy supply!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this internal solid state drive was $339.00, and the lowest price point was $169.99. The current price isn't close to either the highest or the lowest price point, so it's a fairly reasonable time to make this purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, the price tends to stay more or less the same. Not a lot of price movement is expected, but the price could still move in either direction by a smidge.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $300.98 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

3. Samsung is one of the best selling internal solid state drive brand

Brands

Samsung is one of the best selling brands among other internal solid state drive brands. But I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

4. Manufacturer has generally positive reviews on their other products

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. The manufacturer of this product, Samsung (SAMSUNG), has generally positive reviews on the internet. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, and if you like this product, I'd go with this product!

5. There are other options you might want to check out

Similar Brands

I found 5 brands that have similar products like this one: the same brand as this product, Crucial, Transcend, PNY, and ADATA. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from Transcend. If you're looking for a internal solid state drive with best reviews, a product from the same brand as this product gets the best score on the internet. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from the same brand as this product I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.
