UPGRADE ON SSD FOR HELIX 36984SU subtituting OEM Samsung MZMTE256HMHP-000L1

2015-07-06, 22:39 PM

Hi,

 

I just purchased a Helix 36984SU and I am quite happy with it. It comes with a Samsung MZMTE256HMHP-000L1 installed with 256GB. The disk is reported to be msata (http://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Samsung-PM851-MZ-MTE2560-MZMTE256HMHP-000L1/dp/B00T7MWXDY)

 

I wish to upgrade to either 512 GB or the new 1TB Samsung EVO msata disks. I have been looking at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TGIVRYU?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_sfl_title_8&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER 

 

Does anyone has any reference or experience with this SSD upgrade?

 

Any help will be most welcome.

 

Thanks in advance.

Thanks wolfindersteppe,
I've read that there might be a BIOS issue with the helix, preventing it from recognizing an upgrade SSD disk on 1TB, since it officially listed the highest SSD to 512GB. Any news on this?
Might be a rumor, but I think I read it somewhere. What do you think?
Regards,
Otto
