I recently purchased an ASUS GL552VW-DH71 and I want to put an m.2 ssd drive in to the empty slot - I've been on the phone with ASUS tech support a few times and I've been reading the forums but there seems to be a lot of conflicting information on what m.2 ssd drives are compatible or not...
Some of the information that I'm hoping to clear up:
1. are there different motherboards for GL552VW-DH71 (depending on country) or are they all the same for the same model number? If they are different, what type of M.2 compatibility is in place for the Canadian model?
After a few weeks of correspondence with the ASUS Technical Support
I received the following insider information about SSDs tested on GL552VW:
