I have 256 M.2 in my laptop, and an empty 2.5 inch. I was thinking of getting an Evo.

Do you know if you need to buy the mounts for the 2.5 inch if you aren't buying a hard drive?

I have to look at mine, I can't remember exactly which connection it uses. I googled it, and it says PCIe, but that doesn't sound right. The NVME are way more expensive than the M2, but also way faster. I just don't remember which one mine takes.

As to the mounts, I would think for a laptop you wouldn't need to buy them. I've never bought mounts separately.

Even in my son's desktop I was able to secure a 2.5 inch SSD without additional hardware.

Oh well, only supports 256G SATA or 512G NVMe

"The Inspiron 5570 supports the below storage configurations.

They do have a 500G 970 NVMe for $120. But that's a lot to spend to take it from 128 to 500, when I already have a 1 TB 860 2.5"

I think so. Check Lowes/Home Depot. Maybe even bestbuy, not sure they sell that there.

Already discounting.

I highly recommend the "delay start" feature. My old dishwasher had it and I loved it. Could set it after the dinner clean-up for, say, Midnight, but if I decided to raid the freezer for ice cream, I could still load the bowl in and not have a dirty bowl in the morning ('cause dishwasher already run and done), or, worse, forget to run the dishwasher after loading the bowl and catch hell in the morning.

As you might guess, my current dishwasher does not have the "delay start" feature.

So I want A new iphone (and only one) , and the one I want is $900 plus tax so let's just say $1000 (Xr 256MB) but they are on sale at "Buy two get $750 rebate."


I found out that they will activate each phone so it will be unboxed.


What is the best way to flip a brand new iphone Xr to get as close to retail as possible given a new, never used, but activated-one-time-only-open-box phone?

Can I get $800 for said brand new iphone?
