Before we begin, let us discuss why you want to upgrade the internal storage to Surface Pro .
There are two reasons to consider, with the first being the most obvious:
You want more internal storage
You want a (slightly) faster SSD
The first reason is self-evident. You bought a Surface Pro X with 128 or 256GB of storage, and you want more. Maybe you want 512GB or even 1TB.
If you bought the Wi-Fi-only Surface Pro X, you could drop in a 1TB SSD , . Considering even Microsoft doesn’t sell a 1TB model, that is fantastic. Even if you wanted to jump from 128GB to something like 256GB, you could do it ,
A faster SSD is less of a reason to upgrade and should be seen as a side benefit. Typically, doubling or even quadrupling your storage also improves the read and write performance due to the parallel nature of how flash storage is accomplished. Surface Pro X’s default SSD is, at best, mid- to low-range by today’s standards for performance. Popping in more storage could yield +500MB/s improve sequential read scores, which does make everything feel just a smidge snappier.
