    SSD P3X4 512GB M2 2280 NVME //SAMSUNG/MZVPV512HDGL-00000
    SSD SATA3 128GB M.2 2280 //SAMSUNG/MZNLF128HCHP-00004
    SSD SATA3 128GM.2 2280/20200L00 //HYNIX/HFS128G39MNC-2300A
    SSD SATA3 256GB M.2 2280 //HYNIX/HFS256G39MND-2200A
    SSD SATA3 256GB M.2 2280 //SANDISK/SD7SN6S-256G
    SSD S3 256GB M.2 2280/20300L00 //HYNIX/HFS256G39MND-2300A

    These SSDs were tested on BIOS ver. 209.
    Thanks for the information, but that list should be the combined SSDs for for both types ('SATA' and 'PCIE') of GL552VW motherboard and not just by 1 motherboard type or system.
    If your ASUS contacts didn't already know this, you may want to ask them to confirm there are at least 2 different types of motherboards used (1 type of mb for SATA3 M.2 SSDs and 1 type of mb for PCIe M.2 SSDs) for the GL552VW model.

    If you already have a GL552VW unit and don't have a better way to identify the type of motherboard, your local ASUS support should be able to check this from the serial number to tell you what kind of M.2 SSDs are supported.

    Yes, I know that the most simple way to confirm the compatibility of M.2 is to check the serial number of notebook by ASUS support service.
    At this moment I have three identical answers (from different ASUS workers) from ASUS support describing that M.2 on my GL552VW-DM321T support both PCIe 3.0 x4 and SATA 3 devices.
    Taking into consideration SATA Express Interface Architecture (https://www.sata-io.org/sites/defaul...hitepaper_.pdf), it is possible, it is not fantastic. However, the most rigorous way to test the compatibility of M.2 is the laboratory testing. I can do such testings by myself, but if I do so, I'll lost notebook warranty.

    Was this ever resolved short of calling ASUS support with your PC's Serial Number?

    This (software) approach is not appropriate in our case because M.2 in practice can support both data transfer modes - PCIe3 x4 & SATA3.
    The most rigorous pathway to answer your question: in laboratory (not by OS or, most funny, by third party programs that took specifications from internet garbage), using various testers, testing contacts of MB connecting North bridge and M.2.
    Sorry Brother, that statement is 100% incorrect.

    The Device in the M2 is supported by the drive controller that resides on the motherboard that in turn interfaces with the chipset and maybe raid controller too regardless of OS. You either have NVMe or an AHCI SATA Controller, never the twain shall meet on a single connection.

    North Bridge on motherboards is so ten years ago. They used to be memory controller and AGP traffic as well as PCI traffic. AGP no longer exists and memory and PCIe are now handled directly by the CPU. Only the South Bridge, AKA Chipset, remians and handles everything else.

    have the same machine, after reading all the back and forth i decided to just go with the SATA version. grabbed the samsung 850 evo, 250gb and worked without a problem.

    I've tested my GL552VW-CN108T (European version) with BIOS 216, but the Samsung NVMe SSD doesn't work. I'm now going to try if the AHCI version of the Samsung SM951 will work...

    Not having checked this for a bit, I had hoped for more info/less confusion.

    Just as a point of reference, I tried the Samsung MZHPV512HGDL-00000.

    It did not work.

    With all the confusion and lack of solid answers I ended up going with the Samsung Evo 850. Adding it as the primary drive was an adventure. Samsung migration didn't work since my PC detected two drives with the same letter. I ended up breaking the boots and had to go with a clean install on the new drive. Probably for the best anyways.

    Overall I'm a little disappointing by the lack of support by ASUS and their advertising it as a PCIe.

    I installed a Samsung 850 EVO m.2 (SATA) on my new Asus GL552-DH71 last night. The laptop immediately recognized it and I was able to use the Samsung utility to clone the OS over to the SSD.

    I wish Asus would update their product information on this, as it is causing a lot of confusion. But I will say that I have not yet seen a post from anyone who has successfully put a PCIe m.2 SSD into this laptop. If somebody has done so, please let the rest of us know.

    I'm trying to find out if a Samsung 950 Pro ssd will work in my G751 JT.
    Anybody tried this card in a G751 JT?
