SAMSUNG 850 EVO M.2 250GB SSD SATA III Internal Solid State Drive MZ-N5E250BW with USB 3.0 HUB
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Samsung SSD drive and the newer Samsung Magician software works with it.
Faster than the 54,000 RPM drive the laptop came with
Came with a nice little 4 port USB 3.0 Hub.

Cons: Does not have a M.2 screw or stud
You can not do a secure erase on these as far as I can tell. It always wants you to remove the drive to do it. Unfortunately removing the drive takes it out of the bios memory and you have to reboot to get the drive acknowledged again, this makes a loop to go back to remove the drive again.

Other Thoughts: I knew it did not come with the screw or stud, and finding those are very hard. I blame the laptop manufacturer for that.
Remember that this is a SATA 3 M.2 drive and not a PCI-E M.2 drive.

ORICO 2588S3 Tool Free 2.5-Inch SATA to USB3.0 External Hard Drive Disk Enclosure, Optimized for SSD, Support UASP Transfer Protocol - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works as advertised
Easy to swap drives in and out of it

Cons: It gets 4 eggs because of a design flaw. The 2.5" seating is about an 1/8 of an inch too long. This means that if you move the enclosure the drive disconnects inside. I solved this problem by using a small wooden cigarette match (with the lighting end pinched off). I placed it behind the drive before closing the enclosure and URIKA! Now you can shake the enclosure and no problems.

Other Thoughts: If they would had just included a piece of plastic or something to solve the problem I would have given it 5 eggs.
