Good Day.  I have a Helios 300 ph315 51 766A and specs are listed Below with 1TB hdd. I have called the service center and confirmed that I can add 500gb M.2 NVME PCIe SSD on this Unit. I am just wondering If I can replace the 1TB HDD with 860 evo 1tb ssd. What I understand with the tech support guy on the service center is that NVME PCIe is the only avaiable upgrade for the drive on this unit. He also listed several Brand Including Toshiba , kingston etc and said these are the only brands they have tested and he did not specify 860 evo.

This is the description of the SSD i have my eyes on.

Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD 2.5-Inch SATA III 6GB/s Internal SSD (MZ-76E1T0BW)

Thank you to anyone who will spare sometime to answer.

CPU - i7-8750h
GPU - GTX 1050ti
MEMORY - 16gb(2x8gb) 2667Mhz
HDD - 1TB HDD MQ04abf100

    The 2.5inch 1TB 860evo should work.
    Always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -CPU
    -GPU
    -Operating system

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.
