500/512GB M.2 SSD for Asus Vivobook Flip TP510

2,634 365 January 11, 2018 at 06:18 PM
I'm going to be purchasing this machine: https://www.asus.com/2-in-1-PCs/A...fications/

the model i found only comes with 128GB M.2 SSD, and I want to replace that with 512GB (500 or even 480 would be fine) but I'm not sure how to buy these as I've never heard of this size drive before.

looking at newegg there's three options for M.2:

M.2 2242
M.2 2260
M.2 2280

Does it matter which one I get in terms of compatibility? If it's just a difference of performance I can get whatever (gladly pay more if it's worth it) but my biggest concern is that I'm going to buy something that wont' fit or won't work with my machine...

If they're all fine, what's a good price to pay for this size drive? any deals going on?

Also, how difficult are these to install? Any different than say a regular ssd or ram module (which i'm comfortable doing)?

thanks!

The numbers 2242, 2260, and 2280 refer to dimensions. I am not familiar with the laptop that you are asking about, but if it has a smaller slot than 2280, then a 2280 won't fit, even if everything else about a particular drive is compatible.
