SSD Upgrade

HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop 15-cx0xxx, Product number: 4TU87EA#AKC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello. My qestion is can I fit either Western Digital Green 480GB M2 SATA3 WDS480G2G0B or Samsung 860 EVO 1TB M.2 SATA3 MZ-N6E1T0BW to replace my current LITEON CA1-8D128-HP - 119.24 GB.  As I see on pictures, the connections are not the same.

 

Thank you in advance!

Yes but your Liteon is an NVME M.2...much faster. It is an "M" keyed (2 prong) M.2 SSD and the WD Green and 860 Evo are SATA M.2 devices with a B + M key (3 prong). All 3 fit in the same kind of M.2 slot so simple answer yes you can make the switch but your performance will be negatively affected. You would not affect the performace negatively if you install a Samsung 970 Evo or Evo Plus NVME M.2.

 

Post back with any more questions and please accept as solution if this is the info you needed.

Thank you very much, then I'll spare a little more for 970 Evo! 😉
