Can I install PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD drive in my HP OMEN 15-ax000ne Laptop?

15-ax000ne (2016 model)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Dear all,

 

I want upgrade my M.2 SSD, which already have SanDisk SD8SNAT-128-1006 M.2 SSD drive to PCIE NVMe M.2 SSD like samsung 950Pro. Can I use 950Pro? which is better solution?

 

Crucial MX300 1TB M.2 SSD (2280) 

 

Or 

 

Samsung 950 PRO Series - 512GB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V5P512BW)

 

Will using 950 Pro increase my laptop performance sonsiderably?

 

Thank you so much in advance.

 

Regards,

Sunil GP

Yes, you can.

 

It could have even been purchased with a Samsung 256 or 512 GB PCIe NVMe TLC M.2 SSD

 

 

 

Currently, an NVMe SSD , which happens to be a proprietary type of M.2 SSD by Samsung, is the fastest SSD on the planet.  Of course, that will change and something else will come to market.

 

The Samsung 950 PRO Series - 512GB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V5P512BW) will work.

Dear Sir,

 

Thank you so much for your valuable reply. No customization option was there while purchasing, because I purchased from a shop in Kuwait. Now I will upgrade the SSD with 950Pro. So I have one more question, i.e., with this SSD can I get the maximum speed or will it be limited to 600MB/Sec?

 

Regards,

It is fast and your notebook's performance will astonish you.  That should be all you need to know.

Does the Omen 17 have a PCIE NVME 3.0 x4 slot? From everything I have read it does....

 

Even the drives in the service manual say: 512 GB 2280 M2 PCIe 3x4SS NVMe SS meaning single sided (Samsung PM951)   Which is what came with my Omen 17-w151nr

 

So WHY  are we only getting PCIE 2.0 READ SPEEDS? Appx 1700MBS MAX READ

 

Just upgraded my SSD to a Samsung SM961 read speeds up to 3200MBS and write speeds up to 1800MBS

 

yet the Omen 17-w151nr is capping the read speeds at 1700MBS write speed is about 1650MBS which is pretty average for this drive.

 

Please someone who really knows why our READ speeds are being capped at 1700MBS answer this.

 

Contacted Tech support and they are "looking into this" but with the new Samsung 960 Pro and Evo available now there are going to be some upset people when these laptops for whatever reason cannot deliver the drives rated speeds.

UPDATE:

 

From HP AMS TCO Escalations Team
 
As per our conversation earlier, here is what we spoke on for your own records.
 
We are aware of the issues you're experiencing with the Samsung 961 Pro M.2 and the HP OMEN.

As of right now thee is no current fix for the unit limiting the read speeds of the new drive due to the BIOS not supporting it. (Other words they need to unlock it in the bios)
 
It has only been tested and updated for desktop units.
 
I have spoken with our Level 2 technicians and they've advised to be on the lookout for a BIOS update within the next Month and a half to 2 Months to rectify these issues.

 

Well see how long this bios update takes.
