Thinking about upgrading the ssd on my xps 14 (purchased 2012), what to think of?

The current setup is a 500 GB (5 400 v/min) SATA-drive with a 32 GB mSATA SSD used as cache for the HDD (RST) and I'm thinking about changing the SSD to a bigger one and using it as a boot drive (and therefore turning of RST).

Is there anything I have to think of when it comes to looking for a new SSD or will any SSD with the mSATA form factor work?

It's likely a half-size card and that's all that will fit -- that may restrict your drive capacity, but you should be able to get up to at least a 512G drive in that format (that said, mSATA is rapidly being replaced by M.2/PCIe/NVME, which WILL NOT work with this system).
