I want to upgrade my ram from 6(4+2)gb to atleast 12(8+4)gb and install a msata drive

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-p202ne (ENERGY STAR)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, I am noticing a few hiccups on my laptop and as it has an intel i5 5200U CPU which I think works for my needs, I'd like to add more ram and a faster ssd to it. I discovered it as a msata port but there are types (MLC and TLC) and i'm not really sure which one to choose.

 

What I want to achieve:

1. Ram - https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B00CQ35HBQ/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A17AW1CHVG2YBO&psc=1

for the ram I have a cheap ram in mind, will it work in my case? I've read the manual and tried to get the specs as close as I could, is there any advice for it?

2. msata drive -

256 GB mSATA solid-state drive MLC (not pictured) available on select models766593-001

256 GB mSATA solid-state drive TLC (not pictured)766594-001

these are my options but how do I know which to choose from? is there something that's a safe choice?

 

Here's the link to the manual of my laptop - http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04511833

 

Here are my detailed specifications -
