Y520 ssd upgrade

Hello,

 

I have a Lenovo Legion Y520 15IKBN 80WK004KTX laptop with 16 GB RAM, 1TB storage ,i7 7700hq ,and GTX1050 4GB. I recently got interested in replacing the HDD with a SSD. Are there any limitations regarding size, heating,storage space etc.? Is there an option such as keeping the 1TB storage and adding additional SSD? Thank you.

Re: Y520 ssd upgrade

if your machine has an M.2 port, you can add an M.2 NVMe drive and use it as a boot drive for faster windows and software loading and keep your HDD for storage ..
if it has not, so you can not add another drive but just replacing the HDD with an SSD 2.5in drive through the SATA connection
I'm sure that there is no limitations for the capacity and you can put a 1TB/2TB SSD easily ..
the real thing you have to do and worry about is cloning your operating system to the new SSD drive so it works fine as the old HDD one
