That appears to be a direct C&P of "What SSDS are offered OEM on the entire ASUS G752 product line"

It's direct copypaste from email from ASUS support.

Which is a C&P of What SSDS are offered OEM on the entire ASUS G752 product line that they probably have already listed in their support power point presentation to spit back at people who ask. They will never tell you anything other than OEM and everyone already knew the OEM drives work in the machines as they come from the factory. What I was expecting as I'm sure others are/were too was a list of drives that you or someone else has tested OTHER THAN OEM. The thread header should read, list of OEM SSDs for G752Vl, VT and VY.

I cant compile a list because I havent tested a bunch of drives. The only one other than OEM that I can confirm in the M2 NVMe slot is the Samsung 950 Pro 512GB.

Now lets move along to SATA SSDs, as they dont even offer them so their answer to this one would be NONE!
I can confrim the Samsung 850EVO 1TB

I read in other post in this forum that 950 has a lot of issues on G752

On G752VY DH72
Simple intall, took less than 5 minutes including the cloning process. Zero problems

1)download Samsung Data migration
2) shut down machine
3) install 950 pro in M2 slot not occupied by M2 that contains the OS
4) boot machine
5)launch Samsung data migration tool
6) select C:\ as souce and 950 pro as desitination, floow prompts to clone. In automatic mode it automatically expands the parition to take up the entire 512GB
7) when finished shut down
8) remove original SSD and put 950 pro in its place
9) reboot and enjoy. No further software or drivers needed.

Benchmark immediately after boot on clone. All drivers native to Win10 and Intel IRST driver for raid controller that is installed on the OEM SSD already.
