Best laptop upgrade I've ever done!

More than a few curse words were uttered when the hard drive on my Dell XPS 15 went kaput. The silver lining of that setback was the tremendous performance boost I gained by switching to this mSATA card as my primary drive. I had been wanting to swap my drive for an SSD for quite some time. When my drive crapped out, I did some research and discovered that I could upgrade my 32Gb mSATA card instead, and make it my primary drive. The original mSATA card was there solely for caching. I decided to leave the old drive there after reformatting it. (The old drive does become redundant, and removing it may allow some to upgrade their battery capacity.) Looking at my current memory usage, I saw that 500Gb was more than enough capacity, so I opted for that version of the Samsung 850 EVO. I can now boot-up from a complete shutdown in just a few seconds! No more waiting. Had I known the difference this Samsung 850 EVO would make, I would've upgraded a long time ago.
