    Hello,
    From the day i got my W520 i ordered mPCI 64GB SSD and made it book disk and its original 500GB disk became my storage.

    after these years i feel the SSD is slow and my PC tend to hang from time to time when i overload it work apps running.

    So I was wondering if you have any experience sharing on ordering newer mPCI SSD (the small one that fits into the cellular card) to replace it which is super fast and possibly larger space these days? this is its specs:
    Code:

    yes samsung evo 850 has 250, 500gb and 1tb msata drives. I've use all they are pretty good. The other option is crucial m4 msata. In my experience these are the 2 best msata options
