Legion y520 SSD upgrade

2020-10-07, 10:24 AM

Good morning,

I have laptop Lenovo Legion y520-15IKBN and i want to add SSD. I have basic version with 1 TB HDD and i should have empty slot for SSD. I would like to buy Samsung 970 Evo 500 gb and i would like ask, if it will work or if someone has experience with this model.

Laptop has M.2 slot and Samsung SSD has m.2 2280 PCIE 3.0 nvme. I am aware of some potential BIOS problems, as i have read some topics about it. 

Thank you for answers

Looking at this review:

It seems your model has an M2 NVMe slot, so that drive you suggested should work.

I solved the problem.

 

Suggested SSD works on Legion Y520, you only need to change settings in BIOS so it can recognize the new disk.
