Can this be added to the Acer Nitro (VN7-592G) along with the existing HDD? I do not want to replace it.

Thanks. So I will need to replace the existing hybrid drive.
Crucial CT500MX500SSD4 amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1 is this one any faster? i have a m.2 sata slot and cant decide both have 5 year warranty.

Pretty certain the Evo is faster, even though that Crucial is M.2., it isn't NVMe.
Does anyone know if I could pair this up with a 500GB 850 evo in raid 0 for storing games? Or would I have to get another 850 evo

The Crucial is an M2 Sata drive, the Samsung M2 NVMe. So Samsung will be faster. Some laptops can take either, others one or the other. So you'll need to check the laptop manual for the correct memory to be used.

Many controllers and software RAID solutions are OK with mismatched drives of approximately similar specs, and the endurance of good flash like Samsung's makes data loss much less of an issue than it used to be with HDDs, but personallyI would just run them as two separate drives. SSD RAID on the desktop, especially with SATA drives, has limited real world performance boost. Subjectively the extra throughput doesn't make a huge difference for most operations and you increase the read/write latency.

Yes, though as an added wrinkle, some (like the 3rd Gen X1 Carbon) support them despite it not being official.
I wish ssd were as cheap as hard drives. Sick of moving stuff about from ssd to hdd. Doesn't help that games use like 70gb nowadays so your limited to a few games you play on the ssd and the rest gets shelved onto the hdd. But ssd probably won't ever be as cjeap as hdd

Price differential is getting closer. I paid £270 for a 512GB SSD back in 2012, and that was a blindingly good offer... Price of mechanical drives has changed very little in that time by comparison.

This deal is for a standard Samsung SDD SATA drive, not the M2 model.

The Samsung EVO 860 posted here and the Crucial CT500MX500SSD4 are pretty much exactly the same performance.
