Hello. I'm plan to add an 120GB m.2 ssd for my laptop (ASUS X442-UQ). I'd like to know which is better in terms of longevity and reputation (Like if these brands of SSD gets easily broken, overheating problems, or incompatibility). I'm going to install Windows 10 there and most of the programs that I use and use the HDD installed in my computer for saving other files.

As for the speed, I've read some of the things online and said that you wouldn't really see the difference much.

Uhhm, nope. I can afford either only WD Green or Kingston. I want to know if they are both good or one of them have overheating problems or whatsoever.

Are you sure your laptop has the M2 slot for the SSD. I don't see it as an option in the specs.

The guy on the service center said that it should have one. Well, I will be notified if I upgraded the ram first. He said "8th gen? Most likely."

Also, the site is a little bit outdated since my 940mx has 4gb not 2gb and is 8th gen while the site there is 7th.
