Hello guys,
I'm posting this hoping it will be helpful to somebody. Because there's not much regarding g501vw ssd upgrade in the forum.
My model FHD version which comes with 8gb ram, a 128gb ssd SATA m.2 and a 1TB hard drive. On the specs page it's written the model supports PCIe x4 3.0 512gb and that 8gb are soldered and has a free slot for 8gb more (up to 16gb in total).

In occasion to Black Friday I bought a 1TB ssd NVMe PCIe 3.0 (taking the risk, didn't know if that would be supported since it's 1TB) and a 8gb ddr4 2133mhz.

Installed everything and works fine (NVMe is recognized in BIOS, opposed to as stated in another thread for model g501jw)

It would be helpful to others if you would provide Brand Name and Model Numbers of the devices you bought and successfully installed.
