No, while it is possible to do, it's too much trouble to bother. Compatibility issues, extra drivers and might not be bootable.

Go with SATA drive. It's difficult to decide between SanDisk and 860 QVO at same price. I would go for cheaper option.
Avoid A-Data SU800, 7xx or 650 series (there is so many of them).
860 Evo and MX500 are best SATA drives, but cost more.
Thank you and repped

One slight downside to SSDs is that they have to be powered up every once in a while or they will lose the data.
got a source for that?

Not totally comparable, but if you have 2 bays available and a Microcenter nearby they have their 1TB Inland SATA SSD for only $80 right now, so $160 for 2. So if you're feeling risky, grab 2 and Raid 0 them!

Also uses 3D TLC NAND like the SanDisk Ultra
you mean Raid 1 right? Raid 0 doesn't really reduce the risk of losing data Big Grin

I'm definitely in the market for a 2TB 2.5: drive for my laptop. mechanical drives go for $85 all day long... is it really worth it for a media-storage drive to get an SSD? I have an NVMe 256GB for my primary OS drive.

Also, black Friday/cyber Monday is just around the corner... any bets on good 2TB drive deals?

I want to upgrade hard drive on a 5 year old laptop. I dont need latest or faster ssd. The spec says 2.5 sata 6gps in crucial site.

What would be the cheapest for a decent ssd drive?
I am okay with 200GB to 500GB space. Lightly used laptop.

Any links to those will be appreciated.

SU800 is back from 2016 when first 3D TLC Flash appeared and it was a disaster. If you did not have a MLC SSD - you did not have SSD period. SU800 is based on similar design as MX300, except it has worse performance. Back then Samsung reigned supreme due to different approach with 3D V-Nand flash design.
SU800 TLC Flash is just way too slow compared to current QLC flash.

stannius is correct. You need to power the drive about once a year to prevent data loss or rot; it's not ideal for cold storage.

SU800 TLC Flash is just way too slow compared to current QLC flash.
The SU800 has the (updated) SM2258 for one thing, versus the Marvell 88SS1074 on the MX300, and also has more overprovisoning. It also has a massive SLC cache (the entire drive - 1/3 the capacity, therefore) to compensate for the slow TLC (which is actually MLC in 3-bit mode, not native TLC, by the way). And even then it's faster than QLC - you're talking sequentials here, but you're forgetting QLC has way worse latency and endurance. I agree the SU800 is outdated by modern TLC (and not just Samsung's) but it's a better drive than a "disaster." You do realize that same NAND and controller are used in dozens of drives currently on the market, right?

The SU800's weakness is at smaller capacities (since you want enough dies/CE to saturate the controller, the SLC cache is smaller as well) and when fuller (dynamic SLC at work again). However for most people the 512GB SKU (for example) is as fast as any other drive on the market. It's not DRAM-less and within the SLC cache, with the up-to-date SM2258 controller, it's quite performant.
