I'm looking to upgrade my 2TB HDD with a 2TB SSD to make my system run faster. I'm considering the Crucial MX500 or the Samsung 860 Evo. I'll use the old HDD as extra storage or backup. The versions available on the Amazon website local to me in Ireland are:
Crucial MX500 @ €210
Samsung 860 Evo @ €255

I'm open to other suggestions for a good 2TB SSD. Also, could you confirm that these are compatible with my system in the sig.

Easy migration from your existing 2TB HDD
If the Samsung, the Samsung Data Migration.
If the Crucial, Macrium Reflect.

Detailed steps available if you wish to pursue that path.
Thanks USAFRet. I must ask about how to do that when the SSD arrives next week, whichever one I'll get.

I've gone for the Samsung 860 Evo 2TB. Was about to go for the Crucial but the price went up by nearly €20 when I went to buy it on Amazon, so chose the Samsung as the difference in price was much less than it was.
Thanks everyone for your advice and help. Will find out more about migrating when it arrives next week.
