My wife's laptop is an old dv7 and I just went with a bargain SSD. Much nicer.
Let's check out Toms for the list.
Those might be the best but I didn't buy one of those. I shopped for price and a name I bought before. I ended up in that case a Crucial M500. It's running great. There's an Amazon worth looking at.
I saw a video from a youtuber named 'Tech Deals' accurately describing 7 different SSD's. The man basically said if you spent a lot of money on your computer and if you have a i7 processor you should get the 850 pro.
I have a HP Pavilion DV7 3190ED, I'm considering buying the Samsung 850 pro (500 gb or maybe 250 gb). It does have a intel i7 processor and it was quite expensive (my grandpa, who gave it to me after he bought a new laptop himself, payed 1000-1200 euro's on this).
I do need to clean it up, it doesn't have a lot of programs on it but it has a lot of files I don't use so that could help speed it up. But my question basically is: the laptop is already from 2010. It's a lot slower then it used to be, so should I still get the 850 pro considering it's age? Or is the age a non-factor?
