    Hi All,

    My laptop is starting to slow down and boot times are increasingly frustrating. My laptop (Acer V3-571G) is a good few years old now and I would like to upgrade performance with a SSD. The problem is I have no idea which one to order from Kustom shop? My existing C: drive (500gb) has a used spaced of 201gb currently. So probably need 250GB+. I keep all my media on an external 1tb drive currently.

    Please can you advise?

    I have a crucial mx100 in my 5750G i5 with a custom bios that allows 256mb shared graphics and 16gb of ram, sandisk drives are vfm but check the specs - I had nothing but issues with ocz ssd drives I have rma'd drives 4 times now and I had another die in a pc I build I swapped that out for a sandisk

    If price is not an option, the Samsung 850 EVO is the best bet for you

    I have a Samsung Evo in my desktop just for large games and it's my OS drive in my work station. No issues and it's super fast :)
