For the Ideapad 700 15ISK R80, can I replace the HDD with Samsung EVO 840 500GB SSD?

For the Ideapad 700 15ISK R80, can I replace the HDD with Samsung EVO 840 500GB SSD? Please don't refer me to any manual because the manual is very vague about it and the support people don't know much.

Solved! See the solution

Hi there, Malshafey –

 

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

 

Regarding your question the reply is yes, you can upgrade your laptop with extra SSD Drive from Samsung.

 

Better solution for SSD is Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB M.2 SSD (MZ-N5E250BW) which one you can easily obtain through Amazon with a normal price. Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB M.2 SSD (MZ-N5E250BW) AMAZON

 

Hard disk drive • 2.5-inch, 7 mm SATA III
• 500 GB / 1 TB, 5400rpm
• HYBRID 1 TB 5400rpm SSHD (8G)
• SSD, NGFF, 128 GB / 256 GB / 512 GB

 

Additional important information:

 

1) If you are going to upgrade PC by yourself (install a new RAM and SSD), your warranty won't be voided.

 

2) Installing an SSD Samsung you will need a screw to attach SDD to laptop, the screw is not included in SSD pack, so there are 2 solutions, you can find or order screw from Amazon or another shop (see laptop manual attached here to see the screw type) or, you can remove 1 srew from HDD drive frame to hold SSD (3 screws are enogh to hold HDD).

 

Update us how it goes.

Thank you very much, Shashi.

 

Let me see if i understand correctly:

 

I can upgrade my 1TB HDD with a SATA SSD up to 512GB.

I can upgrade my 128 NVMe SSD with up to 512GB NVMe PCIe SSD.

I can use the 850 Evo M.2.

 

Is that correct?

 

Can i for example use a 1TB Samsung 950 pro PCIe SSD? How far can i go?
