HP Recommended
OMEN 15-dc0003na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My laptop has a slow 128Gb Toshiba M2 SSD.

Any receommendations as to a suitable upgrade? (250-512GB)

If I upgrade, does this affect my warranty?

Hello @agvodz 

 

We dont speak for HP warranty officially on this forum.

With that said, if you upgrade any piece of hardware during your warranty period, HP has the right to decline warranty support, yes.

 

If you do upgrade the SSD during that period, don't break anything while upgrading. If you have to send it in, you will want to replace the new part with the original first.

I would buy the highest capacity drive I could afford. There is no limit to how big the Omen will accept.

Your manual has all the info you should need for upgrading if you so choose... http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c06219881

Thanks for the info.

 

If I do replace the M2 SSD with say a SAMSUNG 500 Gb EVO , what performance improvements can I expect?

Does the motherboard impose any restrictions on the maximum PCI express speed?

There are many different Samsung Evo's out there. Which one (model) are you talking about?

 

What performance improvements can you expect?

I would have no way of knowing exactly. You would have to benchmark it yourself. But most likely, you wont see much to the naked eye. You are upgrading to gain capacity, so.... depends on what M.2 drive you install.

 

Does the motherboard impose any restrictions on the maximum PCI express speed?

Not that I know of. Its possible that if the M.2 port is compatible with both NVMe and Sata, the NVMe speed of x4 could be cut in half. The manual is vague on this as HP only shipped those models with NVMe. I couldn't tell you for sure.
