Hello there,
I want to upgrade my old laptop HP ProBook 6570b with cheap 120GB SSD. What would your recommend? I was thinking about Crucial BX500 120GB, is it a good choice? Is it hard to install SSD in a laptop (I've never done it before)?
Thanks in advance and have a great day :)

I wouldn't recommend a 120GB SSD today. They are just too small if you are running Windows. If this is a Linux only laptop, then it would be OK.
Thanks for concern but my parents don't need more space. 50GB is enough for system and basic programms :)

Would Crucial BX500 120GB be a good choice?

Hi,
Any SSD inside your budget it will be a significant upgrade comparing with the previous HDD drive.

I don't know about the specific model but Crusial is a known brand for SSD.

IMO, if this is a parents build, that is even more reason to not short them on space. Windows 10 updates will fill it up and they won't monitor it until it crashes the host. If you want to not be bothered by them having problems, get a 250GB. And I will shut up now....

"system and basic programms" is exactly what my wifes system is.
Currently consuming about 80GB. Which is right at the edge of what would be usable in a 120GB drive.

Once you save a few funny cat pictures, and teh semi annual Windows update, that 120GB goes away far faster than you think.


A 250GB drive is under $50. And will give you peace of mind not having to manage that free space all the time.

Ok, thanks for the heads ups. I'll buy 240GB then :)

Patriot Burst 240GB
Kingston A400 240GB
Crucial BX500 240GB
