Hello! Has anyone tried upgrading a 2TB M.2 NVMe SSD on Asus ROG STRIX G15 G512LV (the full model is G15 G512LV-HN244)? I already have one slot with 1TB, but I'm wondering if I can insert 2TB into one of the other free slots. I've come across various comments on the internet about this topic. Some say each slot has a limit of 1TB, while others say 2TB, and I can't understand if this will work. Has anyone successfully tried 2TB?

They say that a 2TB SSD is compatible, and even a 4TB, but can we rely on this source?

I suggest you look up your laptop on the Kingston website if you don't trust the Crucial site.

I have upgraded a G16 2023 G614JV to 2 TB for OS drive and 4 TB for second drive bay. No problems whatsoever

@C-V-N @DARTHSKRYX  I just found this information about my computer: "RAID 0 UP TO 2TB SSD." Does this have to bother me?

UPDATE: Several weeks later, and I'm pleased to report that everything is working smoothly! I purchased XPG SX8200 Pro 2TB SSD, and it works without any issues. A big thank you to everyone who helped me figure this out. During my search for a solution, I found many guys in a similar situation, wondering if they could upgrade their SSD to 2TB or more. The answer is yes, you can. I bought my laptop back in 2020, and at that time, larger SSD sizes may not have been as commonly used. Perhaps that's why the manufacturer's instructions indicated a maximum SSD upgrade option of 1TB per slot or something like that. So, if you have a gaming laptop similar to mine and are contemplating an upgrade, the answer is yes, you can! Many thanks to everyone who helped me! I truly appreciate it. @C-V-N @DARTHSKRYX 

Glad to know it worked for you as well! Effectively, it has to do with available drive sizes at the time your PC was manufactured, what upgrades you implemented?

Well when I bought the laptop, I had the option to choose between a 512GB or 1TB SSD and between 16GB or 32GB RAM. I chose the 1TB SSD and 32GB RAM. And now with your help, I have added a 2TB SSD, and I still have one free slot, so in the future, I may add one more SSD
