Hi:

 

Yes, you can replace the 2.5" mechanical hard drive with a 2.5" SSD.

 

This one IMHO, provides the best performance for the price.

 

This is the 500 GB model...

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.

Hi

 

Thanks a lot for the quick reply. I will try your suggestions.

 

I found a Crucial SSD drive at a lower price

I found a HP SSD drive at a lower price

Are they compatible?

 

Do you have a recommendation on 1 TB SSD drive?

You're very welcome.

 

Any 2.5" SSD will work.

 

You have to compare the read/write speeds of the models you are interested in.

 

For example the drive I posted has these read/write speeds...

 

Sequential read speeds up to 560 MB/s, and sequential write speeds up to 530 MB/s .

 

The HP drive you posted has sequential read speeds up to 560 MB/s, and sequential write speeds up to 515MB/s.

 

So the HP drive is really good, but falls a little short on the write speeds than the WD Blue one.

 

The HP drive in India seems to be a better bargain.

 

Here in the United States, the WD drive I posted is only 4418 Rupees ($59.99), so it is much more expensive in India for the same model.

1 TB...I found this similar HP drive to the one you posted...

 

https://www.amazon.in/HP-6MC15AA-ABC-SATAIII-Internal/dp/B07QJ2BXN8/ref=sr_1_24?dchild=1&keywords=1+...

 

READ WRITE SPEEDS: Sequential Read/Write Speeds up to 561 MB/s / 523 MB/s, an industry top leading reliability (MTBF) 2 Million Hours.

 

That drive costs $89.00 in the United States, where is costs the equivalent of $143 dollars (10,599.00 Rupees) in India.

 

This one is a very popular drive and costs less than the HP drive above, but it also has a little slower read/write speeds.

You'll have to go with what you think makes the most sense.

 

I think I would go with the 1 TB Samsung drive which in India seems to give you the best performance per rupee.
