About this deal

All other products will be delivered via the fastest available method (excluding bank holidays and weekends) and generally within 3-5 days, depending on customer location. Take your large game library wherever you are with up to 2TB 1 of trusted Western Digital TLC NAND storage. The "CH" denotes something unique about these, which is they are often used in the Xbox Series X|S. That's why so many of them are listed as "refurbished" or "pre-owned."

With future-ready, scalable NVMe architecture, the Western Digital PC SN530 NVMe SSD offers both manufacturers and end-users the solution to innovate and expand their computing effectiveness. This NVMe SSD enables greater design flexibility for ultra-thin notebook or tablet designs that require a cost effective, reliable storage device with a small form factor and capacity points up to 1TB 1. Hard drive retention: Hard drive retention is not available on models with a soldered hard drive, including XPS 9315 2in1, Chromebooks or Venue tablets, except the Venue 11 Pro. Please also note that the usable space for this drive is 867GB (rest of the space WD already allocated to overprovisioning so it is not accessible by the user. This is done to some extent on all SSDs). Revitalize and expand the storage of your M.2 2230 SSD compatible laptop such as many Microsoft ® Surface and Dell™ models.

MTTF = Mean Time To Failure based on internal testing using Telcordia stress part testing. MTTF is based on a sample population and is estimated by statistical measurements and acceleration algorithms. MTTF does not predict an individual drive’s reliability and does not constitute a warranty. (Telecordia SR-332, GB, 40°C). Some people mount the M.2 SSD directly, but it may rattle due to the thinness without the enclosure. Users can add a shim to stop the rattle or put the new SSD into the old enclosure with (or without) adding the thermal paste. TBW (terabytes written) values calculated using JEDEC client workload (JESD219) and vary by product capacity. The speculation here is that allocated space is used for Xbox Series X|S storage, and it can't be recovered. Get ready for an immersive experience with exclusive gaming features including PCIe ® Gen 4.0 3, Western Digital's nCache™ 4.0 Technology, and Microsoft’s DirectStorage Support.

For this tutorial, I will re-use the metal sleeve and re-paste the thermal compound. Making a Windows 11 Recovery Drive The first reason is self-evident. You bought a Surface Pro 8 with 128 or 256GB of storage, and you want more. Maybe you want 512GB or even 1TB. As used for storage capacity, one gigabyte (GB) = one billion bytes and one terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending on operating environment. Now that the new SSD is in place, you need to reinstall Windows 11. It is recommended to have Surface Pro 8 plugged in for AC power during this process (don't power it on yet until step 2 below):Intel SME Study Disclaimer: Based on a 2018 survey of small business owners in five countries. Details here intel.com.au/smestudy Read speeds up to 2,400 MB/s and low power consumption leverages both the PCIe Gen3 x4 interface, as well as sophisticated NVMe power management

Test Conditions: Performance is Need Measured by CrystalDiskMark 5.2.1 using 1000MB LBA range ASUS G752VSK . Windows 10 Pro 64-bit using Microsoft StorNVMe driver, Primary drive. Performance may vary based on host device. 1 MB = 1,000,000 bytes. IOPS = input/output operations per second. Thermal paste, a prying tool, and rubbing alcohol are not obligatory as it depends on how detailed you want to be with the replacement. Microsoft ships its SSD in a metal enclosure for protection, functioning additionally as a heat sink. It uses a small amount of thermal paste sandwiched between the drive and the casing. SSDs typically do not produce that much heat (compared to a CPU or GPU), so the benefit is likely minimal. A typical 1TB SSD usually has 952GB of available storage with around 913GB available after Windows 11 is installed versus the 823GB you'll have (with Windows 11) in one of these Western Digital drives. That's a loss of about 90GB. The process is simple. We're going to wipe and configure the USB drive to be bootable and then copy over the Surface Pro 8 + Windows 11 recovery files to it. Here's how:Measured using MobileMark™ 2014 on ASUS B944UA with i5-7200U, 8GB RAM. Windows 10 Pro 64-bit 19H1 using MicroSoft driver, Primary drive. IDC Whitepaper: “Optimizing Performance with Frequent Server Replacements for Enterprises” commissioned by Dell Technologies and Intel, March 2021. Results are based on interviews with 18 IT practitioners and decision makers at midsize and large enterprises and a web survey of 707 IT practitioners and decision makers at midsize and larger enterprises using Dell Technologies server solutions across 7 industries. See full whitepaper: https://www.delltechnologies.com/resources/en-us/asset/white-papers/products/servers/server-infrastructure-resiliency-enterprise-whitepaper.pdf Since the replacement SSD does not have an OS, you will need to reinstall Windows 11 after the swap. The easiest way is to load Microsoft's official Surface Pro 8 recovery files to a USB drive, as this gives you all the necessary drivers for Surface Pro 8. Doing so restores Surface Pro 8 to its factory state.

The Western Digital PC SN530 NVMe SSD, supporting PCIe Gen3 x4, is designed for a multitude of applications that require both high performance and low power. Equipped with a fully integrated solution which includes an in-house controller, 96-layer 3D NAND, firmware, and extensive testing, Western Digital provides longevity of supply in a robust and reliable design. Do not add a lot of thermal paste as it is not strictly needed. Nor do you need expensive thermal paste, as this is not a high-performance CPU. You want a very thin layer when spread out, as too much paste defeats the purpose.
