    Hi all.

    I want to upgrade the SSD on my MBA 2017 to a ±256 GB.

    The available options where I live are:

    1. SSD M.2 2280 Gigabyte NVMe 256GB PCIe 3.0 x2 (3590 MKD - $65.3)
    2. SSD M.2 Kingston NVMe A1000 240GB PCIe 3.0 x2 (3490 MKD - $63.4)
    3. SSD M.2 Samsung 860 Evo 250GB SATA III (4230 MKD - $76)

    Which one of these three is the best choice for the MBA 2017?

    Thanks in advance

    The Samsung 860 will not work on your MacBook.

    No option for the Adata sx8200 Pro, Intel 760p, HP ex920, or Sabrent Rocket? If not, try the Kingston.

    I use an HP ex900 256 GB in a 2017 Air with no problems. Read and write is not the fastest but it works and feels no slower than the Apple 128 it came with.
