Lenovo LEGION Y520 15IKBN - Upgrade M.2 SSD NVMe to 2T M.2 SSD NVMe

2021-07-19, 17:23 PM

Lenovo LEGION Y520 15IKBN - Upgrade M.2 SSD NVMe to 2T M.2 SSD NVMe

 

Is it possible? Is there any limit on the max capacity of the M.2 SSD NVMe?

 

For example, this is one I like to upgrade it to:

  • Crucial P5 2TB PCIe M.2 2280SS SSD

Thank you very much.

Hello @mike.qin,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

SSD Compatibility is optional on this machine based on the PSREF page: https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/Lenovo_Laptops/Lenovo_Legion_Y520_15/Lenovo_Legion_Y520_15_Spec.PDF


This means that not all models have the capability of using M.2 SSD's. I'd suggest checking if you have the capability by opening the machine first.

After that if Crucial says they have tested the SSD compatible with the machine it should work just fine.


Hope this helps.
Regards,
Jack_Lenovo1

Thank you, Jack, My model does have M.2 SSD NVMe, and if there is no constraint on sizing, I am going to give it a try to upgrade to a 2TB M.2 SSD NVMe. I will loop back once I am done. Thanks,
