SSD/NVMe upgrade for Pavilion 15-CX0172TX

Pavilion 15-CX0172TX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hey,

Will be buying the Pavilion 15-CX0172TX tomorrow in Thailand.

With it i would like to buy an 240GB NVMe drive to Install and Run Windows on it and use the 1TB HDD that comes with it as second storage drive.

Any idea which NVMe drives are compatible? or should i just get an SSD?

The M.2 SSD products that are compatible have the following specifications.  PCie, NVMe, TLC and 2280 format.

See Page 2 Chapter one of the HP Maintenence and Service guide at the line below.for all of the specifications for your notebook.

The Samsung EVO 970 NVMe is a compatible M.2 SSD for your gaming notebook.

Compare the specifications that I provided with candidate M.2 SSD products.  I made a suggestion in my last post.  Telling you what to buy is not something I would feel comfortable with. You are responsible for your own purchasing choices and decisions. I just provided you with the ability to make a smart choice in purchasing a compatible M.2 NVMe SSD boot drive.
