Cheap/Reliable Replacement for Haswell HP Elitebook

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I purchased a dozen used Haswell HP Elitebooks on eBay for a really great price. These units came with 128GB SSDs. These SSDs are OEM Micron RealSSD C400 and SanDisk X100. Half of them are failing DST tests and Windows 10 won't even properly install without throwing a DST error. So, I'm not bitter about my purchase. I want to purchase 256GB SSDs to replace these failing 128GB drives. These laptops are used in a business environment. So I don't need anything enthusiast grade. I'm more interested in Price\Reliability > Performance.

I've been looking around on eBay at used OEM Samsung drives (803/840 based drives).

Any recommendations?

I'd like to keep things around $60-$70 per drive.

You could go OEM or used on ebay but if you want something new and reliable for your price point i say the ADATA Premier SP550, at 59.99$ on newegg for the 240gb model it fits your bill perfectly, i have the 480gb model and its run perfectly for me since i got it about 5 months ago. the drives also come with a 3 year warranty which is better then most of the cheaper drives ive seen, there are more expensive drives out there with better ratings and warranty but they are more then your preferred price point. its a really nice sdd overall, for day to day use and games its awesome, it does chug once file transfers go over about 3gb though and the speeds drop to about 50mbs but aside from that its a awesome 500mbs+ drive and i rarely do transfers that big so its perfect for me. hope this helps though, cheers smile.gif
