Bought Asus Zenbook UX305FA-USM1 with this SanDisk model 256 Gb M.2 SSD (search here the text “Storage Devices”; or “and M.2 SSD module” for pictured SSD). This is my first experience with SSD and I am more than a little impressed!
But I worry about SSD and would perhaps like to have an imaged clone SSD ready at any time to replace the factory unit. But a call to SanDisk phone tech support could not immediately recommend a replacement but instead suggested to contact Asus first for their recommendation. So I’m coming here first for any suggestions. A capacity of about 256 GB is sufficient for me, especially since the larger units seem out of my price range.
I’m still learning about the newer connections since the old days of IDE… but I believe this is “M.2”, not SATA III (?). By the look of it, it is a 80mm in length.
I’ll probably have followup questions, so I’ll leave my question at that for now… Any suggestions? … anyone with experience?
