Upgraded Latitude 7490 from sata m.2 to NVME m.2
The Sata m.2 in the Latitude 7490 had fast disk read of 454 but I knew the NVME would be lightning speed compared to it. I bought the Gen 3 Samsung because of the price and also knowing the Latitude would only use 2 lanes. (per the internet ). I also decided to do a clean install of Windows 11 Pro. I removed the Sata m.2, put in the Samsung m.2 booted up with the Windows 11 Pro install dvd and Windows saw the Samsung immediately. After the install, I tested the drive with Crystal Disk Mark and it was 33250, I later installed the Samsung driver for the disk, downloaded from the Samsung site and it was 3499. The Drive states speeds of 3500. Totally pleased and my son which is an IT Director, is going to buy the exact same disk to upgrade his companies Dell Optiplex's. 5 Star, and super quick shipping from B&H.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Running for a year and a half with no issues. Still as fast as the day I installed it!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Best of the best for a gen 3 SSD, does everything I want
Seamless Upgrade for HP laptop
Replaced the original mechanical 1TB hard drive in our HP Pavilion laptop using the Samsung Migration software. Made an image copy of the old drive, removed the old drive and rebooted into all the content that was there before! Superfast boot, applications open in an instant. The old computer had a slot for the optane cache memory and this fit in the M2 slot with no problems. Like a new laptop for $100 bucks!
Very fast ssd
