Hello Paul,

 

I'm just reaching out to you because you were such a great help for me before. 

Not sure that I'm suppose to do this, but you can let me know. BTW, I should be receiving the new WLAN Card today for replacement to add WiFi. I found it brand new for $7.99, with USPS Priority Mail, only ran me a total of $16.51. 

 

 I have an HP 15-r018dx Laptop. 

My question is whether or not I have the capability of adding a L27309-001 Hp 16gb 2280 Pcie 3x2 Nvme 3d Xp Ssd Drive 15- CS0072WM which shows compatible for my particular model and that way I can have the HDD for better speed and performance or should I just replace the HDD with a 500GB SSD and call it a day. I'm currently only using 14% of the 750GB HDD anyhow. 

 

Thanks in advance for the response.

Hi:

 

Your 15-r018dx does not have a M.2 slot to support a M.2 SSD.

 

The only way to install a SSD in your15-r018dx  would be to replace the 2.5" mechanical hard drive with a 2.5" SSD

Ok. 

Thanks Paul. 

I thought that was the case, but I wasn't sure. 

Would you recommendation be to upgrade the HDD to a SSD for better speed and performance. 

Especially since I have just recently upgraded the memory to the max of 16B.

Thanks in advance

You're very welcome.

 

Upgrading the mechanical hard drive to a 2.5" SSD will be the best money you ever spent on an upgrade.

 

If you can live with 500 GB of drive space, I recommend this model...best performance for the price...

Thanks again Paul.

I actually went with the Samsung EVO 860, especially with the 5 year Manufacturer's Warranty. 

 

I'll let you know what happens after I complete all the upgrades to the PC. 

 

Regards,

 

Balwill

Thanks in advance
