I just recently bought a Asus Strix Scar 17 laptop and a Samsung 2Tb NVME drive for it as a second drive. I don't need cloning services.
I did not want to install it myself because there are 2 flimsy LED cables attached to the cover and I did not want to void the warranty.
I looked on the Microcenter website and it stated that installing a hard drive would cost $79.99.
The when I physically went to the store, the representative told me that SSD's cost $100 to install?
Why does it cost more? It is less labor because its 1 screw as appose to a standard Hard Drive which requires 4 screws. As stated before I don't need cloning services. I just want someone to physically install it in my laptop. I can do the rest.
Can someone please tell me the reason and logic Microcenter is using for the cost difference?
Hello @Picorosan and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. For a regular HDD or Sata HDD, its $79.99 to install. For SSD or NVME's, its $99.99 for installation. The reason the cost is higher is because its an NVME installation and not a regular HDD.
