Hi all,
This is my first post. The hdd on my asus g750jw is deemed dead by a technician. I think it is a good time to replace it with ssd. So I need some guidance for buying it. I have the following questions:
1) I believe I'll need a 2.5 inch sata 3 ssd. There is also a size in mm given on amazon website and so I'm not sure which one is relevant.
2) Is there anything else I need to know about ssd?
3) Also, can I mount the ssd in the same slot as my hdd?

Thanks in advance.
TF

Hi Techfreak, and welcome to the ROG Forum.
1A. Yes
1B. No, just 2.5 drive.
2. Yes, I would go with the Samsung 850 PRO SSD.
3. Yes, that would be best.

Check out this Web site, they rate the Samsung 850 PRO SSD number 1 most fastest SSD, and most reliable. (link below)

Hope this helps you my friend?
