Can this be used to replace a hdd drive. Are the connections the same? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
So, would this work?

Buy this laptop for £400 https://www.businessdirect.bt.com/products/hp-probook-450-g4-intel-core-i3-7100u-4gb-500gb-15-6--win-10-pro-y8a06et-abu-CH2Q.html
Get £200 "tradeup" cashback via https://hp.tradeuptohp.com/gb/en/pages/tradein/qualifying
(the BT laptop code is Y8A06ET)

Insert the M.2 into the laptop; image the existing C: drive to M.2 using your favorite free imaging software; take out the hard drive OR change the boot order to start with the M.2 drive. A fast laptop with reasonable storage for about £255.

Here's a picture of the easily accessible hard drive/M.2 bay.

Yes, agreed..............but using the MS drivers.....................The Samsung drivers are a different beast........
Here is an example......................The Win 10 driver figures are in brackets............
Sequential Read (Q= 32,T= 1) : 2466.052 (1999) MB/s
Sequential Write (Q= 32,T= 1) : 1124.494 (1101) MB/s
Random Read 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 401.212 (93.25) MB/s [ 97952.1 IOPS]
Random Write 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 369.145 (67.88) MB/s [ 90123.3 IOPS]
Sequential Read (T= 1) : 1092.522 (1040) MB/s
Sequential Write (T= 1) : 1111.216 (1029) MB/s
Random Read 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 35.633 (22.59) MB/s [ 8699.5 IOPS]
Random Write 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 179.585 (54.60) MB/s [ 43844.0 IOPS]
The 961 drivers can be found on the Samsung site under enterprise.NVME divers.................

Thanks for this, I'm happy with performance with MS drivers but a speed improvement is always good will check out enterprise.NVME drivers

BURNIE :yes no .. you need an m.2 connector, v recent mobo/laptop.. 128gb is barely enough for os and working programs
Thankyou.

They are indeed. Certainly when using Rapid Mode. But having a lower speed is a very different thing to "be prepared for some issues."
Even assuming you couldn't use Samsung's driver for the best performance, you'd be hard pressed to find a bug in Microsoft's NVMe driver that ships with Windows. It'll work fine.
I think you misunderstood, I meant that getting the Samsung drivers may present some challenges................Not that the Win drivers would present any issues, they work OK, just not as optimised as they could be........

What's the difference between this and the scanfx one here?https://www.scan.co.uk/products/256gb-scanfx-nvme-mlc-v-nand-m2-ssd-pcie-30-x4-read-3100-mb-sec-write-1400-mb-sec-330k-iops-oem
Both appear to be oem versions if the drive. Just interested if anyone knows if they'd end up being the same thing. Price is similar but I'd prefer Scan as a retailer.
Thoughts?

It's the same thing, Scan just brand OEM stuff as Scanfx. Look on the pic on scan's site, it says Samsung
scan fx? newer heard
