I want to replace a HDD (Seagate ST1000LM035-1RK172) in a Lenovo Flex 5-1570 (Type 81CA) with an SSD. I am looking for 500 GB or 1 TB. Is this SSD SAMSUNG 1TB 860 EVO-Series 2.5 compatible for my Lenovo ?


Your laptop can hold a 2.5" SATA SSD like the Samsung 860 Evo. So a clear yes to your question.
It can also be expanded with an m.2 NVMe SSD, in case you want to keep your hard drive for more total storage.

  • Note: the HDD might be 9mm thick, where most SSDs are 7mm, so padding might be required. It's readily and cheaply available as something you stick on the SSD – Jan Dorniak Apr 18 at 15:13
