Lenovo Ideapad Y700 17-ISK 80Q0 SSD Upgrade?

Hi there,

 

My Y700 has a 128GB M.2. Samsung SSD inside it.

128GB is not a lot and I've got only 10GB of storage left.

 

I was wondering if I could upgrade the SSD myself without voiding the warranty.

Anyone knows the answer please let me know Smiley Happy

Hi there, Gunner         -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

Looking at page 26-27 of the HMM, this model (Y700-15ISK) can use up to: SSD, NGFF, 128 GB / 256 GB / 512 GB

 

The SSDs that they stated are:

 

Samsung PM871 MZNLN128HCGR M.2 128GB SSD

Liteon CV1-8B128 128GB M.2

Samsung MZNLN256HCHP M.2 256GB

Liteon CV1-8B256 256GB M.2 SSD 5SD0J21061

Samsung MZNLN512HCJH M.2 512GB 

Liteon CV1-8B512 512GB M.2

Samsung MZVLV128HCGR 128GB M.2 PCIE

Samsung MZVLV256HCHP 256GB M.2 PCIE

Samsung MZVLV512HCJH 512GB M.2 PCIE

 

On most systems, No it will not void the warranty unless damage is caused to the system by the SSD or when installing it into the system.

 

The SSD will not be covered by the warranty in both cases unless it is purchased as an authorised option from Lenovo.

 

Update us how it goes.

 

 

 

 

Regards,

Do I really have to choose one of those SSD's?
The reason I'm asking this is because Intel brings out their new 3D XPoint technology (codename "Optane") and I am planning to upgrade to this new SSD generation, which according to them appears to be cheaper, more reliable and faster than the current NAND SSDs.

Yes. Above given list of SSD’s are Lenovo tested. However, coming to 3D XPoint technology,

Please go through this link to know about 3DX point.

Yes its easy if you image the existing drive and write to a 256 or 512GB SSD.

Intel SSD had a major problem working with Thinkpads years ago so unless Intel can assure you they've tested it on your platform and you can return it to the seller. I'd stay away.

Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y700 17-ISK 80Q0 SSD Upgrade?

The HMM list are just the drives sourced by Lenovo for use with this model.

 

Any SATA M.2 SSD should work. I use one of those, not listed above.

 

NVMe M.2 SSDs (faster) should work in principle but there were some reports here on this forum of people running into problems with them on the Y700, so if you go for one of those it'd be good to buy from a place that allows returns or exchanges, or to check if it works prior to purchase.
