SSD unit is 2.5 inch form (same as laptops use ) and will not mate up with 3.5 inch mounting frames. Adaptor brackets are easily available and cheap. Well worth the trouble for a good secure fit. Migration of data ( if you want to replace your main drive "C" with SSD for greater speed ) requires following Samsung migration software guidelines. Good Luck . Regards , Ross. see less
