Welcome to the Community

It should work without additional efforts. I assume you mean 2.5" drive.

Yes , it is a 2.5". I have been reading on several sites that it should be one of the most reliable SSD drives!?

In theory and marketing materials - yes. )
In practice most modern SSDs from top line vendors, aspecially for consumer market (or client PCs), have similar reliability features, 1.2...1.5 mln hours (MTBF) and write data value (depends on the drive capacity). So, most likely such SSD will become obsolet earlier than die.
