Maximum capacity for M.2 NVME and 2.5" drives in my predator PH317-51 laptop

fddjr1fddjr1 Member Posts: 4 New User
I have a predator PH317-51 laptop with a 256MB M.2 SSD and a 1tb 2.5" standard HD stock as purchased.  I wanted to get a bigger M.2 or NVME drive as I'm filling up and wanted some guidance.  I've seen posts that say NVME drives work in my laptop (although not at full NVME speeds), and I've seen posts that the maximum is 512MB capacity is supported.  I think the NVME question seems to be supported in multple posts when I search, but not the maximum size aspect.  I was hoping to get a 1tb Samsung 970 EVO M.2 NVME drive but wanted to know if this size is compatible with my machine.  Also can I swap out the 1tb 2.5" drive for a 2tb 2.5" drive.  Many thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    Yes, the recommended maximum size for M.2 SSD is 512GB but I have seen others installing 1TB drives as well, so I guess you won't have any problem with a 1TB drive, you could also replace 1TB 2.5" drive with a 2TB drive but keep in mind that the recommended maximum size is 1TB.
