Lenovo Yoga 500-14IBD ssd upgrade

Hi

 

I was trying to buy an ssd for my Yoga500 but I'm not really sure which ssd to pick, I dont have a big budget to spend for it. I have an external  disk connected - 1TB HDD via usb enclosure so I dn't really need 1TB ssd (too expensive), also I have WDC WD10S21X-24R1BT0-SSHD-8GB inside the Yoga, so I'll have 2 TB disks USB connected to it so I'll be fine with the amount of storage. Main thing is to getn an ssd to the laptop to make it a bit "quicker" as sometimes because of the hdd inside its freezing.

I was thingking about 2 options:

 

1) samsung evo 850 250 GB

( https://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-inch-Solid-State-Drive/dp/B00P736UEU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1483971... )

2) sandisk ssd plus 480 GB

https://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-PLUS-535MB-2-5-Inch-Internal-x/dp/B01F9G46Q8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid... )

 

I'm more likely to buy a bigger one, its almost the same price.

What you think? which one is better? obviously if its possible to change to sandisk (im not sure).

If you have any other propositions or suggestions, all are welcome.

 

Thanks

Re: Lenovo Yoga 500-14IBD ssd upgrade

Hi Neo_cortex

 

 

Thank you very much for your reply. Im going to buy SanDisk then.

 

Just one thing I was reading some topics about mSATA in Lenovo Yoga 500, is this a right thing to do in my case? Sometimes when im saving big files from photoshop disk goes 100% and i have to wait a while to have this complited. 

I was planning to change my HHD i have to SanDisk SSD to resolve the issue but I wont have enough of space for files so I will be still saving them on the HDD in USB enclosure.

So if ill have my bootable disk as SSD I understand that laptop will start quicker, apps will open quicker but saving on the HDD will be still the same, slow and taking up to 100%...is that right?

 

Whatever I'll do (beside buying SSD with 1 TB or more, i cant afford them, unfortunately) I'll endup with same scenario...saving files will "freeze" my system but starting will improve?


What is the difference of getting SSD as a main bootable disk and mSATA SSD?

 

 

thanks R
