Samsung 860 EVO has a 5 year warranty, but more importantly it's rated for TWICE the TDP (terabytes written) as the older 850 EVO (which itself was long lived) .. which basically makes it an 850 PRO for longevity but with only a 5 year warranty where the 850 PRO had 10 years (and is why I favour them when I'm flush).

They're also (on paper) faster than the SanDisk .. that said we're talking about lab tests, in most real world scenarios you'd be hard pushed to notice the speed difference between most SATA SSD's .. most now swamp SATA III bus speeds, effectively limiting them all to the same speed.

Write to destruction comparative tests have shown the Samsung 850 EVO/PRO drives to not only (marginally) outperform the competition, but to outlast them (usually by a significant margin) .. and as I said, Samsung are rating the 860 EVO at TWICE the TDP of the 850 EVO.

But realy what you're paying the extra for is peace of mind .. where a 5 year warranty for the EVO and 10 year for the 850 PRO helps :)

Oddly, though the 860 PRO has twice the TDP of the 860 EVO (so 4X the TDP of an 850 EVO), it still only has a 5 year warranty .. only the 850 PRO had the 10 year warranty.

Hi flighty, that looks great.  All you need to do is fit the proposed SSD.  I favour the 240GB SanDisk Ultra II.  This is a very quick gaming grade SSD.  It comes with a 3 year warranty.  I don't think this is a long as the Samsung 860 EVO and it's only slightly slower than the SanDisk Ultra 3D.  You can pick up a 240GB one, for around 65 Euros on Ebay.  Any of the SSDs mentioned, are top notch.  You'll be shocked at the performance difference  :o.  In the future, you'll only use a spinner for /DATA storage  ;).

Right,  the above seems to give the gist of my system.  Would I need to change anything else other than the hard drive?

Oh, man! You have added one extra dimension of complexity with dual-booting.
As murraymint is saying, you will have to update GRUB on the system in control of it.
running sudo apt-get install suld-scanner-usblp-fix did not make a difference.

Yes, it is connected via USB.
