Hello!
I originally installed a Crucial 240GB (BX I think) drive in my system because, well it was cheap! I would like to replace it with a bit larger drive as it is getting a bit crowded. I need it to be the 2.5" format and wouldn't mind a 1TB size.
I have seen the Inland brand offered by MC but I am a bit unsure about house brands. Would the Crucial be ok to choose, or should I consider another brand? Samsung? Sandisk?....
Thanks

I wouldn't stray away from the reputed brands. Often times the lesser known brands are horrible in terms of performance, warranty and ofc reliability. I'd look at anything outside of Inland, IMHO. What's your budget?

Just wish to update! Recent upgrades included a 2600X Ryzen processor and finally dropped in a Crucial MX500 1 TB drive! Before I was keeping games on a separate spinney drive and they loaded slooooow! Doom, for example, took 3 or 4 minutes to load, but now I migrated to the SSD, it loads almost instantly! Going to have to migrate some others as well!
