I just bought a new Thinkpad P71 which came with 2 drives:
- 1TB SSD PCIe TLC OPAL2
- 500GB 7200rpm HDD
I'm looking to replace the 500GB with a SSD drive. Would the following SSD be a good option, or would you recommend another SSD?

I've been using a 1TB Crucial MX200 on my P70. Excellent drive! I also have 2 500GB Samsung 950 NVMe drives. It's an older machine; these were current when I installed them, and haven't (yet) felt the need to upgrade them.

I don't have a P71, but I've been using MX500 750GB on an X230 for about a year now. It does not feel as fast as Samsung 850 with its RAPID feature, but from what I've read, MX500 has a lower power usage, which is a nice thing for a laptop. I hope this helps.
