    Any screenshot of your conversation?
    I was told about this in person by the service center. So I do not have any proof of that. I do have the call recorded with ASUS though but I have to go through all my call recordings to find it.

    Anyway I am sending proof of a mail I have sent to them just now. Hopefully this helps. I have blurred of the email address because it looks like its one of the employees email address. I assure you its an official email by ASUS because it ends with '@asus.com'.

    Says so righ on the Specifications page:

    Yes the laptop supports PCIe M.2 drives. But then again there are 2 types. PCIe M.2 NVMe and PCIe M.2 SATA.

    I know that there are many people that have used PCIE M.2 NVMe drives. I have informed ASUS about this. They have confirmed that PCIe M.2 SATA drives are the only drives supported.

    The Samsung 960 EVO is a PCIe M.2 NVMe drive and yes I have heard of many people using it. I'm just letting people know about this because it damaged my motherboard (which was luckily under warranty).

    I will keep you guys updated. Please refer to my answer above. It has a screenshot of the mail I have sent to ASUS.

    For reference, this is the difference between M.2 PCIe NVMe (Top) drives and M.2 PCIe SATA(Bottom) drives.

    I do have the PCIe M.2 960 Evo, and it has been working perfectly since I installed it nearly one year ago.

    In fact, I just bought an 860 Evo SATA 2TB SSD to keep it company after my Seagate FireCuda 2TB (upgraded by me from Stock Hitachi 1TB) died after a minor impact.
