    Yes, I show the GL552VW can also use different motherboards to support either PCIE M.2 SSDs or SATA3 M.2 SSDs (but not both at the same time), so something that should be checked first.
    Only seeing the GL552VW supporting SATA3 M.2 SSDs in the U.S. and Canada right now, but better to double-check the full GL552VW-xxxx model name to be sure in case I missed anything, or something changes later.
    Thanks and sorry this couldn't be easier.

    Hello Cl-Albert ! I opened up the GL552VW-DH71 that i have, and the connector looked like it was a PCIe connector : There was only one indentation.

    According to what i saw, in this image (http://www.hwtools.net/jpg/Compatibi...SD_M2P4A_1.png), the right connector would be the right one, so PCIe. That does not tell me if NVME or AHCI would work, tho.

    I find it extremely disapointing and baffling that ASUS customer service can't even tell me what type of M.2 SSD my laptop is compatible with. I filled a ticket online (through e-mail) AND on the phone (through escalation), and, 3 days later, NO ONE replied.

    Hi 2Leonard2, fyi. Can't explain the M.2 connector that you have right now, but my information shows the GL552VW-DH71 is using SATA3 M.2 SSDs if it matters and Bootes reported installing a SATA M.2 SSD on your same model, so not sure if we can ask them or others who are using SATA3 M.2 SSDs on the GL552VW-DH71 to confirm the type of connector they have or provide a picture (unfortunately, don't have GL552VW units around to check right now)

    But would'nt the SSD connectors have two indentations if it was a SATA m.2 connection ? Maybe Bootes could tell me. I bought the laptop from Newegg.ca, maybe the canadian models have PCIe connectors. Please clarify this for me : do PCIe slot have one or two identations ?

    BUMP ! One last question if anyone knows : Do M.2 PCIe connectors can also take M.2 SATA SSDs ? As i said in my previous messages, my GL552VW has a M.2 PCIe connector, but the model is supposed to take M.2 SATA.

    cl-Albert, I think I have the USA GL552VW-DH71 and mine looks like a singe keyed PCIe slot. See pics.

    That's where it get confusing ! My GL552VW -DH71 also is a single keyed PCIe slot, exacly like the one in Daselby's photo. cl-Albert says the GL552VW-DH71 is compatible with SATA 3 SSD. Does that mean that a single keyed PCIe slot can also accomodate SATA 3 SSD ? Or is the connector simply wrong, and our machines are flawed ? I wish we could see Bootes's connector, maybe his GL552VW-DH71 has the proper M.2 connector.

    Hi daselby, thanks for the screenshot and your PM, but I believe M.2 SATA3 SSDs with the 2 keys (B+M) can still be installed, so that may not be conclusive enough. I still need to confirm this on my end, but emejay pointed out wikipedia mentioned this if it matters.
    Looks like we have a competing thread about this topic, but saw your other post there and doesn't sound like you have been able to get the M.2 PCIE SSD working yet?

    Anyway, my information shows the same GL552VW-DH71 is sold in U.S. and Canada and supports M.2 SATA3 SSDs, so we may need to see if more people can confirm this works, or if there are any ways to get the M.2 PCIE SSDs working (I don't expect it, but wouldn't be the first time I'm wrong about something).
