    How to know if my Asus ROG G551JX laptop would support a 4tb ssd ? If so which one ?

    I have been using an Asus ROG G551JX laptop since 2015. It currently has a 1 TB hard disk. Due to some circumstances, I have to use the laptop instead of my desktop for music production. So I need to install a 4TB SSD, but a lot of people have expressed their doubts about whether a 4 TB SSD would be supported. I would like some help in determining whether my laptop model supports a 4TB SSD and if so, what would be a compatible SATA SSD? Any help would be appreciated

    Thank You

    Very very old computers did not support 4TB drives but a computer from 2015 does not have that issue. It will be fine.

    As for a recommendation? Probably any SATA drive would work but the Samsung EVO line is pretty good.

    Since this is an earlier laptop, we cannot guarantee the compatibility and stability of SSD replacement with you.
    Sorry for any inconvenience it may be caused.
