SSD upgrade for Medion Erazer X7827

Hi.

 

I am using a Medion Erazer X7827. The SSD currently installed is a Samsung MZ7TD128HAFV-00000, with a capacity of 128 GB.

I would like to replace this SSD by a higher capacity Samsung SSD. Which type  of Samsung SSD could do the job?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Travis.

 

I finally installed a Samsung SSD 870 EVO 500GB in my X7827 as a C disk. After restoring a backup, I could restart the X7827 and everything worked fine.

 

Thanks,

Hi there,

 

I can't recommend an exact type of Samsung SSD to get but I can say that any Samsung 2.5 inch SSD from the EVO 870 or QVO 870 series will work in the laptop, these are the main customer level SSDs they provide. The EVO is the performance variant where as the QVO series is more bang for the buck so to speak. 

 

I hope this helps you to make a decision on what SSD to buy yourself.

 

Kind regards,

Travis

Hi Travis.

 

Thank you for your answer to my query.

 

I have good deal for a Samsung SSD 870 EVO 500GB, but I am wondering if it will be usable on my X7827 : the SATA version for the 870 EVO is SATA 3.3, whilst the currently installed SSD (MZ7TD128HAFV-00000) has 3.1 as SATA version.

Does the SATA 3.3 SSD will operate on a bus possibly designed only for SATA 3.1 or should I not worry about this?

 

Thanks.
