Is this the good kind of ssd?

I'm not knowledgeable in the ssd world but I do remember samsung has different ssd lines and they seem to differ in build and quality.

Also would this work in a 2012 hp elitebook 8440p?

I know I have the slot for it. Just dont know if its compatible.

Thanks for the help

sata 3 connectors are always going to be backwards compatible with sata 2 (just by going with a quick google search of what sata connector you have in that laptop). you're just not going to get sata 3 speeds and top out at sata 2 speeds, but you will still be getting significantly faster speeds than any platter drive.

860 is the newest 2.5” model, but QLC SSD’s are not super.

Same price at Best Buy, Amazon, and Canada Computers.

I bought one from Amazon back in March for $129.99, so it's not the best price. It's a warm deal.

Thanks for your info, what are the situations which can make slc cache full? is there easy way to avoid? such as adding RAM?

Unfortunately the explanation isn't simple. The problem, as I understand it, is that the cache gets smaller as the drive gets closer to capacity. At its smallest, the cache is 6GB. This means that if you write more than 6GB worth of data with the drive nearly full, it'll get really slow. With the drive empty, the cache is 78GB.

Many people won't notice anything amiss, or at least rarely. For me, I'd rather avoid the situation altogether and spend a few more bucks in a different drive.

SLC cache... explained... Hmm... First off, no increasing memory doesn't help because memory is used to move the info faster once it has been pulled out o storage. You are now in the process of doing so and havent reached that point yet. Consider this. You drive from your house to Niagara Falls. You are going at about 4pm. You hit the highway which normally helps you get there much faster but its rush hour and traffic is at a stop. It is just the same. Too much info is being pushed through SLC cache in too short of a time... Brings things to a crawl. Oh and I may have a 1 and 2TB 870 QVO available below in a day or so...Stay tuned.

Lastly, there was a thought that SSDs moving data with the SLC cache full are slower than hard drives. That's not correct. We forget to consider that we are making the comparison against a HDD advertised spec and not the true disk transfer speed of the hard drive which is much much slower most of the time. In fact, alot of years ago I did testing where we determined that a hard drive, or SSD, only ever truly reaches its advertised speeds in real data transfer about 1.4% of the time.

So... in laymen's terms, a vehicle tuck in a traffic jam on a multi-lane highway (SSD) is still moving faster than a vehicle stuck in a traffic jam on a single lane road (HDD).

LOL. You may want to edit your post lol. EVO is also 2.5" SATA.
