    Exclamation HELP ! Can you suggest some hard disks replacements for my ROG G752vy ?

    Hi to everyone, this is my first post on this forum so I apologize if I am inadvertently breaking some rules.
    My G752vy Sata just abandoned me yesterday and actually I was looking for a good replacement, I have read other posts regarding the same argument on the forum, but dated two years ago, in this post a 2tb Firecuda is suggested but actually I don't know if there is something better out there, I also wanted to place an ssd on the m.2 slot for booting. My budget is not high and I wanted to remain on the 300/200 €.
    Thank you for your time and stay safe!

    PS.
    I was also looking for a replacement of the letter "A" of my keyboard, my model is german, and is mounting s173 keys models, actually I've met no few difficulties in looking for the right item. Thank you again !

    Thank you for your answer ! Actually I am in Europe and I have the german version of g752vy, is there any difference ? Also I can't buy from this site because it ships only in Uk and Turkey
    I've found the "Samsung 860 on amazon and for the ssd I saw it cost double here for this I think I will start with a 500gb perhaps by the moment and upgrading it in the future.
    May I ask you what is the main difference between the samsung sata and the 2tb firecuda ? yes I know one is an ssd and the secnd one is mechanical I was just curious about the motivation of this suggestion is the ssd really best performing than mechanical ?

    Thank you for your time !

    SSD much better than mechanical hard drive. My suggestions are just that...suggestions, but SSD is so much better.

    Samsung 2.5 SATA SSD are fine and have no moving parts so very unlikely to fail before becoming obsolete. I currently still have a Samsung 830 running that I bought back in 2012 and a 850 Pro SATA I bought about the same time still using this one in my G752 VY as well as a 970 Evo M.2 . they all are outlasting the warrany period 10 years and 5 years. This is why we recommend SSD besides the fact that the boot an OS in 20 seconds or less. The M.2 PCIE NVME are even faster and well worth the extra money.
    As to your Question about Keyboard Keys replacements I only know of 2 available to us here in the USA not sure if they have EU counter parts or ship over seas at all. Laptop Key Replacement | Keyboard Keys | Keypad Keys (replacementlaptopkeys.com)
    They also have video's that show you how to change out these keys.
