SSD Upgrade for 5 year old Laptop
TL;DR - Upgrading an old Asus K55A to an SSD, Does it really matter what brand SSD I go with?
Did a search here and googled as well, I seem to have gotten lost in the weeds here... I am upgrading an old Asus K55A (4Gb Ram, Ivy Bridge i5 CPU, Windows 10) for a family member and the laptop is solid but SLOW! It's only used a few times a week for web browsing, quickbooks and programming commercial LED signs. Not looking to get a new laptop but hoping to breath some new life into it with an SSD.
Does it matter if I get a WD Blue 3D NAND 500GB for $75, a Samsung 870 for $90 or a Kingston 480GB A400 for $65? The computer will defiantly not be pushing these drives to the limit. Haven't bought an SSD since my old Crucial C300...
Thanks for any tips from the experts.
PS - I'm gonna toss another 4 gb ram in it while im at it.
