The Z400s SSDs are available in 2.5″ SATA, mSATA and M.2 form factors in capacities of 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.

This will not kill HDD…sadly this will keep HDD in the mix for some time to come. I thought it was going to be 2-3tb SSD or larger SSD at HDD prices but no this will not happen. And HDD will keep on spinning… pun

designed to replace hard-disk drives

Yeah, right. Marketing dept got a little ahead of themselves there.

If you went on to read about them, they will be available with Windows 10 already on them. For an extra fee you can also buy a reduced price subscription to Windows 10.

“having a price point on par with HDDs”, to be on par the 256GB version has to be priced similarly to a 500GB HDD. Believe that when I see it.

No prices so not really worth my time… yet.

Hi. What do you think to change your HDD to a SSD? Hard disk is already 5 years old

I think that you should go for it, but maybe consider a different drive, maybe get the 850 evo or the intel 535, not sure if the V300 has the same NAND that I tested a few years back.
