Acer Swift 3 SF314-56-502L : can I add an 2.5-inch SATA SSD?

MnzMnz Member Posts: 3 New User

Hi everybody,

I have a SF314-56-502L (part Number: NX.H4CAA.003).

I'd like to replace the 128gb drive with a 1TB 2.5" SSD drive. Is this possible? 

I've read somwhere that it's possible with a caddy, cable etc., but is it also true of that model? Will it fit?

Thanks a lot for your help.

    Hi, you need a caddy for 2.5 SSD. The drive won't be hold in place without one. Probably order directly from Acer? Anyway, I think it is much easier to just replace your M2 128GB with a larger NVMe one.
