Hello all,

I was hoping someone could help me out with figuring which SSD my computer can take as an upgrade. It is an HP 840 G2. Right now it has 128gb SSD, SPECCY says it is currently a LITON LCH-128V2S. It says it is a SATA-III 6.0Gb/s

I am wondering if there are faster and better ssd's out there. I am also wanting to find something more in the range of 256gb for an ssd. Really appreciate the help!


Here is my computer specs:







Those are 2 pictures I posted from my laptop, right now in the corner you can see the 2.5 SSD that is in there, but I am not sure what that empty slot is that says "SSD," is that for an M.2?  Not looking to spend a fortune, but just want an SSD thats in the 256gb range and has a read/write speed around the 520 area (whereas the LITEON that came with the laptop has a read of 520, but a write of around 120, I believe).


Thanks for your help and input!

I don't see any SSD installed on the image!!!


Based on my search you need to find a SSD M.2 2260 PCIe for example Crucial CT250MX200SSD6 or CT500MX200SSD6

It's to the left of the PCIe slot. Can see the corner of it (bottom-right).

Personally I would go with Intel, Samsung or ADATA SSDs. However; these days a standard home/office worker could not tell the difference when it comes to speeds of any branded SSD.

Also note that speeds also depend on the device(s) that are writing/reading to/from system drive.
