    Wonder if any kind soul could recommend a replacement for my mSATA 32 GB SSD. Its 5 years old now and its starting to fail.

    I would like to know the best place to buy one in the UK, i dont mind if its more than 32 GB but of course it must be SATA II.

    I had a 250GB Samsung 850 Evo mSATA SSD in my M18x-R2 as my OS drive and was rather happy with it. They even go up to 1TB capacity which is rather neat.

    I'm using 1TB Samsung 850 Evo mSATA in my M18X-R2 along with another 1TB Samsung 850 Evo SSD (sata 3 port) and its working wonders,
