Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 - compatible SSDs

Hello dear Community!

 

I've got a Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 notebook, purchased 4 years ago.
Not so long ago the HDD just went wrong again so now I'd like to put an SSD in it instead of a new HDD.

Here's my first found: SSD Kingston 240 GB SSD, V300, 7mm (other specs: 2,5 inch, SATA3 interface).

 

So, my question #1 is whether this SSD will be okay for my machine or not?
If not could You just suggest me another ones that are compatible with it for sure (around the same capacity)?

 

Another but not so important question #2: is it possible that changing the drive manually (no guarantee anymore) will cause the original (with-purchased) Win7 OS not working?

 

Thank You very much for Your response in advance!

 

Best regards,

Zsolt László

hi Zsolt,

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

I haven't seen anyone used the Kingston 240 GB SSD on the Z570 but it should work as it's a 2.5" drive (ensure that you can return the item though just in case the BIOS doesn't detect it).

 

Alternatively, you can opt to get another brand like the Samsung Evo as other users have tested it on this unit.

As for the OS, Windows should automatically activate itself once you re-install Windows (e.g., From a backup, a recovery disc, or fresh install) but in case it doesn't activate, you will need to activate it by phone.

 

Edit:

Regards

Hey neokenchi!

 

Thank You very much for Your fast response!

Accepted your suggestion and after some search I chose the one U recommended (SAMSUNG 850 EVO Basic 2,5" 250GB ordered).

Probably I will post my experiences here as soon as possible (about both the hardware and the Win7 installation).

 

Have a nice weekend!
