HP Pavillion Notebook Product Number: K4E58EA#ABU SSD upgrade options

HP Recommended
HP Pavillion Notebook Product Number: K4E58EA#ABU
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I've seen https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/HP-Pavillion-Notebook-Product-... and wondered if an M.2 SSD larger than 256GB would be compatible with the K4E58EA#ABU? Ideally I'd like to upgrade to either 500GB or 1TB. Would a 'P2 500GB PCIe M.2 2280 SSD' be ok?

Hi:

 

Based on the product number you posted, you have a HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab271na.

 

Below is the link to the service manual.

 

HP Pavilion Notebook (Intel)Star WarsTM Special Edition Notebook Maintenance and Service Guide

 

The supported drive types can be found in chapter 1.

 

You should be able to go as high as 2 TB in your model.

 

If your notebook has a M.2 slot, it would only support SATA M.2 SSD's not NVMe.

 

This would be the 500 GB Crucial SSD that would work in your notebook provided it has a M.2 slot.

 

Crucial MX500 500 GB CT500MX500SSD4-Up to 560 MB/s (3D NAND, SATA, M.2 Type 2280SS, Internal SSD): A...

 

I highly recommend that you open up your notebook and check first before buying a M.2 SSD.

Your machine is an HP Pavilion 15-ab271na, its specs

The first question is: does it have M.2 slot for storage at all ? If yes, you can use M.2 SSD drive larger (capacity) up to 2TB single sided;  but Crucial P2 series drives won't work. From the previous reply, machine supports M.2 SATA drives, not NVMe.

 

Regards.
