If you don't mind sharing, what brand of SSD did you buy for your primary drive. Also, how difficult was the installation and cloning (if you did clone everything from the old HDD). I will be buying an SSD soon and need all the help and iinfo I can get. If you prefer not to share all that here I understand (y)

I use and recommend either samsung or intel for a ssd. Both of those are just about bullet proof.

Currently running a Samsung 250gig Evo 850 ... It's currently at 2.1TBW, and ~3000 hrs.
I have an "identical" computer that I use for editing videos ... It's at 4.6TBW and ~3500 hrs

My next will be the Samsung 260 Evo 860 for the greater (~8x) TBW life ... I just got a new one.
I have a HDD that's loaded with my OS .... It's basically a fresh install that's kept updated.
All my Data is in HDDs

Before I change ..
I update the HDD > Then make an Acronis Image backup ..
Then restore the SSD from the Acronis Image backup.
Clone also works , but I use the Image backup to make sure it works.

I never backup a working OS ... all restores are back to as new (Fresh) as they can be

I've got an external enclosure holding an Old SSD
