Not as good as Amazon one but that was targeted
Ordered one myself, shipping for me to 3151 was $10.21
We need more great eBay deals i have an eBay voucher itchy too use 😃👍
Installed this last night, very nice.
Comes with drive cloning software to move a Windows drive etc. Simple.
Great price for performance
I am building a new rig, can I clone C: drive from the old PC and Windows license would work?
No, cloning most likely won't work. You're always best to do a clean install for a new build.
Your Windows licence may work, it's a bit of a lottery.
Thanks mate, I will do a new install and sounds like I might have to pay more to M$.
@ky1975: You possibly don't have to pay for Windows license if you are transferring it from your old machine to the new rig.
Go to https://account.microsoft.com/devices/ and login to MS account. It should show a list of devices. Keep this handy and go to https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/contactus/ and start the chat support. Type in "Speak to human" until you get routed to a person. Then say that you had to rebuild due to motherboard issues and want the license transferred to the new machine and they will help you out. I have done this many times previously for both physical and VM builds.
@firefly2k3: Thats very good info, thanks heaps.
Which software does it work with. My experience with cloning software is that it can be sketchy and work on one system just fine and completely fail to clone another. These days I assume I'm going to have a headache and have 2 or 3 different cloning software lined up Clonezilla has saved me on a few occasions where others failed. And I will never touch AOMEI again.

Does this come with the screw required to secure it in?
No unfortunately it doesn't. I just got mine yesterday, and although I haven't opened it fully, there does not appear to be a screw
So which screw to get? cos i am planning to get one for my laptop.
there is already a M.2 NVME 256gb in slot one.
I am planning to replace the second 2.5 SATA HDD with a NVME SSD
different form factor and interface… not sure how you are planning that replacement.
@firefly2k3: As per the tear down, there is a SATA slot and also a NVMe slot. So by removing the 2.5 Sata HDD, we can either replace with 2.5 Sata SSD or use the other NVMe slot, but both cant be used simultaneously.
Also replacing the SATA with NVMe gives the additional option of increasing the battery size if required.
@ViVeK Pra: yeah.. that teardown changes everything… so you do have access to another M.2 slot if you get rid of the SATA SSD/HDD. And by the looks of it, seems like an "M" keyed slot (strongly suggest to verify it is not "M+B" keyed on your laptop) so you should be OK.
@firefly2k3: yeah checked its a M Keyed slot.
Will open the laptop this weekend mostly to double check and then order.
The one i have is same as the one posted today. Lenovo Legion 5 AMD
@ViVeK Pra: I did this today. Just use one of the spare screws holding the SSD caddy in. You need to use another one of those screws to leave the battery in.
@catbarf: Cool thanks. You got the Legion too?
Random bluescreens due to the drivers reported by many users. (Google for it) Which is a shame because it's otherwise a solid mid range offering that's good enough for most people. Nothing worse than a flakey machine so I've avoided.
I would argue a handful of users over 'many'.
Kingston have previously reported it's something to do with the Asus software. So maybe think twice if you a re using an Asus board.
Known issue for Gigabyte boards which is caused by RGB Fusion software.
And also for Asus boards which is caused by AURA Service.
The common thread is the drive though.
And the common thread is also gigabyte and asus RBG software. Your original statement is very misleading.
@bert-lifts: Common? 2 different manufacturer's RGB software. Might as well say the common thread is Windows. Or electricity. And you call my statement misleading… Try to learn not to shoot the messenger.
@syousef: "Random bluescreens due to the drivers reported by many users" is misleading when it has a conflict with some specific RBG software. All I'm saying is that you should make that clarification, not a blanket statement like you did. It's almost as if you are intentionally leaving that information out for some reason. I've noticed you have posted similar comments in other deals, so you seem to be well aware of the issue. Why not mention it?
It would be great for second drive tho. :P
