Default Alienware R4 Aurora Hard drive failed - how to get a replacement?

My Aurora R4 hard drive has failed.

The SSD drive is a LITEONIT LCS-256M6S 2.5 7mm 256GB

I would like to buy a new hard drive that is a larger SSD. How do I know which hard drives are compatible ?

I don't want to go through Dell. Thanks

I highly doubt it's restricted in anyway for which ssd will work. Any 7mm sata ssd should be fine. I would lean towards a 525gb mx300.
Desktop: Arc Midi R2, Z77-D3H, 3770@4.1ghz with Zalman Optima Cooler, 4x4gb ram, EVGA GTX 1070 Ti SC, Bitfenix Fury 750w, WD Black 1TB, MX500 500gb
Away from home: Lenovo Legion Y530, 16gb, i7 8750H, GTX1050Ti

Any SSD should work in that PC. It doesn't have to be Dell at all.

And I second the motion for a MX300.

They are good SSD's.
