    Hi,

    I was thinking about getting a Crucial P1 SSD (1TB) for my Razer Blade 15, does anyone know if its compatible or has anyone tried fitting a Crucial SSD in yet? Thanks in advance!

    Btw, will replacing the SSD break the guarantee?

    Best regards

    I've never had any compatibility issue with Crucial SSDs on several manufactuters notebooks (mainly Dell, Lenovo).
    Replacing HDD/SSD .

    As far as I know, replacing SSD in Razer Blade may void your warranty.
     
  3. You can replace SSD but it voids your warranty. For compatibility, I believe Razer blades uses nvme m.2 ssd, nvme is the connection type and m.2 is the size. just make sure u get the right type, another type is Sata, which wont fit. Do search up on how to back up ur files over etc

    As @FiszPL mentioned it may void the guarantee if it or you damage the other parts or laptop. I see dozens users who upgraded it and still qualified for guarantee. It’s also why they make it, SSD, RAM and wireless card, to give users free upgrade options, if not they will solder it like Apple laptops. And yes SATA M2 is also compatible with slower performance as a trade off and i think base Model use also sata, but you won’t notice it hugely like on windows boot or opening games, maybe on rendering works it’s noticeable, but on good SATA drive like evo 860, idk about crucial never had experience with that.
     
  5. Idk which model he has, but u cant use sata drive on nvme drive, so unless he got the base model with hdd, he cant use the sata drive. But from what he said, hes probably not replacing the ssd, so should be doable

    On previous Blade 14 it couldn’t but now early adopters had tested it it is fine as long it’s M2, Check Blade 15 owner lounge in notebookreview forum on...idk where it’s already 300 pages lol;), somewhere there, on earlier pages.

    Alright, I really appreciate your answers, thanks a lot for the help! :)

    Are you really sure an SATA SSD would fit in the Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model? I always thought this model could only take NVME drives in contrast to the base model which uses a SATA SSD and a HDD.

    According this it works, I remember other user on different pages also confirmed that, try search it more there. At that time base model isn’t born yet.
