It will fit. However you need to keep a few things in mind. If the laptop only has 1 NVMe slot, you'll have to do a fresh windows install when you change the ssd's. If there are 2 slots, then Bob's your uncle.
Or boot from a usb stick, copy an image to an external hard drive, install the new ssd, and copy it back.

thank you, i wasnt aware. do you have this drive? curious about the posters in the thread you linked citing heat issues and failures.
Have had this drive for over a year now when I built my computer. It is my primary OS/Game drive. Always game about 4-5 hours a day. Absolutely ZERO issues so far. Warranty support is handled by a 3rd party here in America, though I don't have any experience with them. Although, on the other thread people are saying customer support is fine with a couple guys claiming it isn't.

A good amount worse but not worth the price difference to the EVO. I would recommend the HP EX920, Sabrent Rocket, Silicon Power 1TB, Adata SX8200, etc. over a QLC drive for the money. The cheaper TLC drives are actually a better value overall than these and perform better. Basically, if the price difference is $20 or less, get the TLC drive.

the samsung is 2x the cost of the other drives, however, at this price point, if you're using it for your primary computer and it crapps out, you're going to be mad you didn't spend $90 more and get the samsung. i mean, if we're talking $2000 instead of $1000 that's a different story so even though it's "double," it's all relative. besides, it sounds like most of the posters of the budget drives use them for external drives which might not be as critical of an application.

Damn I bought at $120 a few months back. This drive is alright, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by it. I backup everything important elsewhere but I use this is my main rig for lots of stuff and I've yet to have an issue. A lot of people were dramatic about these sucking, they don't they are a value. What sucks is everything I bought at the beginning of this year has been discounted like 40-50% lol Next year I'm not buying shit until October.

If you're moving between NVME m.2 ssds and only have one slot, it's a bit more than $10 for an NVME-compatible m.2 usb adapter, but I guess it's still probably worth having.

There is definitely some validity to this argument. I personally happen to only use the Sabrent Rocket as a boot drive of the "budget" NVME drives I own. However, with these "budget" drives being half the cost, you could also buy a second and maintain a mirrored image of the original boot drive. There is no single drive that will ever maintain data as safely as having a backup on a second, purely from a probability perspective. Again, I own three 970 EVO. They are great, but I wouldn't buy them even as a daily boot drive in this current market. Two were purchased when they were the only 2tb option. The other 1tb model was purchased from a Dell gift card promo. I've dealt with enough warranties to know how almost all companies handle things and I wouldn't see much of a problem with a claim from any of them.
