Got a quick question if anyone can help.
I'm looking to switch to a ssd since I upgraded to win 10 on my Dell xps laptop. I read that I would need a caddy to transfer over the data?
And I also read that you should ideally do a fresh win10 install on the ssd. If you upgraded from win7 is the serial key on the sticker under my laptop still valid and how would you do the upgrade? Download the bootable USB file for Windows.
I know it's not the ideal place to post as it's not a deal but was going to buy this ssd to upgrade.

You need some means to get data from the old to the new drive. Could be a caddy works for you, you could also use cloud storage. Make sure you have any important data backed up beforehand though!

With win10 your licence is tied to your motherboard (or ms account from anniversary edition or later), so you shouldn't need a key to do a fresh install. Best way is to create media using the MS tool and install clean on new ssd

As still within in 30 days, you can return to amazon, you have to pay return postage. But still work out cheaper than you sell it 2nd hand.

Two choices.

1 usb caddy for the old hdd, and usb flash drive with clone software. put the new sdd in, boot via the usb flash drive and clone the hdd to the ssd.

2. clean install with the ssd, as you upgraded via win7, you can either put the put the product key in (coa sticker) or just skip that part and it should find your lappy hash on ms' servers

3. You can either copy over user data (files) via usb flash, cd network or get a usb caddy for the hdd!

I would not use the cloud for the above operation. Remember that once you put data onto a cloud service you have reduced control over it (for me its no longer my data if its on the cloud)

How much is this without prime?

Wouldn't pay 30

Care to elaborate? What's wrong with it?
It gets very positive reviews on Amazon.

Is this expected price these days? Haven't looked since Brexit but this seems pricey compared to my last purchase about 8 months ago

275GB is a very odd size for these, used to be either 240 or 256 gb. And as far as I know there are technical reasons for which size is usually around those numbers.

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 download media tool now into usb(16GB preferably), plug in when ssd in, switch laptop on, install :) it will activate win10 once you login with your account. forget all "caddies" if you need anything save into external drive

I wouldn't say this is a hot deal. Have bought new 240/256gb ssd before for around 40quid or less before.
I will wait for something better

Buy a caddy. It's like £10 from currys.

Use the windows backup tool to create a backup image on ur SSD

Take the hard drive out replace with Ssd and restore ur backup it's easy.

No need to do a clean install unless u think you have some malware or viruses.

Use the caddy for ur old hard drive and use it as a backup or whatever.

ssd drives seem to be up significantly in price. no idea why though.

default answer is probably "because brexit"

2 reasons, nand shortage and yes brexit !!!!!!! Yes we have in years gone by was up to $2 to the the £, historically we have been around the 1.50 to 1.60 $ to £, we recently sunk down to £1.21.

Remember that most raw goods, inc food and petrol are brought in either $ or €.

Agreed, £40 is a much more exceptible price for a 240GB, its pretty annoying seeing there prices stay at around £60 due to inflation.
