TLC if anyone cares.
Silly question, but what does TLC refer to in this case?

TLC if anyone cares.
It's not regular TLC, higher endurance, too lazy to explain more but check out the Anandtech article, here's a quote from Google:

Endurance: Close to Planar MLC NAND
Samsung SSD 850 EVO Lifetime Estimation
120GB 250GB
Raw NAND Capacity 128GiB 256GiB
NAND P/E Cycles 2,000
Raw NAND Endurance 250TiB 500TiB

Isn't this one of the fastest SSDs available in this form factor?

Newegg currently has the their price at $109, if you are getting anything else that adds up to $200 with their paypal code $25 off it might also be a sweet deal.

Edit: Additional Newegg has the 500GB at $209 as well ($184 withpaypalcode), so that will probably be the best offer if you are looking for more storage.

Computer newbie question here: I'm running a T430s with Windows 10 with the hard drive that it came with. I want to upgrade to this SSD. I don't really care to clone the existing drive, as my data and photos etc. are all in the cloud anyways, and I don't want to bother buying a USB-SATA cable just for this SSD upgrade. What would happen if I just took the hard drive out of the laptop and plugged in this new blank SSD? How would the SSD get Windows installed? Thanks.
