If you have time, find a friend with a spare ssd nvme and see if it fits and recognizes as a drive

That's a safest fail proof way.

Sucks when they don't reply.

Not much info online. I suggest just open the laptop, you should be able to see the upgrade path.

Seem using M.2 SSD and not PCIe SSD (NVMe).

There should be a label with the model number at the bottom of the laptop.

15" 7th Generation
AFTERSHOCK MX-15 (N850HJ)
AFTERSHOCK MX-15 Pro (N850HP6)
AFTERSHOCK MX-15 Elite (N850HK1)

15" 8th Generation
AFTERSHOCK MX-15 (N850EJ)
AFTERSHOCK MX-15 Elite (N850EK)
AFTERSHOCK MX-15 Pro (N850EP6)

Then google for "clevo N850??" or search at crucial.com
eg:
http://www.crucial.com/compatible-up...r/clevo/n850hj
http://www.crucial.com/compatible-up.../clevo/n850hp6
http://www.crucial.com/compatible-up.../clevo/n850hk1

Seem to be M.2/NGFF (2280)

Have you checked and verified your model number?

What is your cpu model?

M2.ngff (Sata) may be for 7th generation.

If yours is 8th generation, it may be using M2.nvme

yea its indeed N850HJ , according to crucial site, it definitely supports m.2 sata ngff . my cpu is i7 7th gen . so im guessing it can fit a m.2 nvme but i wont get the max speed of the nvme ssd?

Pg 34 of manual shows photo with M2.sata ssd
https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1273261/Clevo-N850hk1.html?page=34#manual

But pg 14 of manual says specifications support Sata/nvme. Perhaps can take the risk?

“(Factory Option) One M.2 SATA/PCIe Gen3 x4 Solid State Drive (SSD)”

wow thanks for the help and effort man... the manual seems to be for n850hk though, not sure if same as n850hj ... im also leaning towards taking the risk especially ppl mainly sells nvme ssd these days ... i dont mind not having the max speed of nvme, as long as it can boot up and work ...

I say take the risk. Can fine cheap used nvme ssd. Any slow ssd will be much faster than hdd.

High chance is a Sata 3 M.2 slot. Just got for 2280, the most common length.
anybody got experience how to clone the HDD to to a M.2 SSD as such? Can you plug in to the slot and clone or do it externally?

You need a software to do this. Some ssd manufacturers like Samsung has software with it.

Don’t 2nd Guess lah .

I also have an Aftershock laptop, purchased 1 year ago.

All you have to do is to either call them up or email them directly .
As an Aftershock owner , you are entitled to free lifetime technical support , as long as their store is still around .

So far, the support response I received from Aftershock has been fantastic .

Aftershock also helped me to physically install my NVME SSD upgrades onto my laptop for me, FOC!
( side note : I did the cloning myself ) .

Hi, im looking to install a SSD to my aftershock mx15 (currently no ssd, only hdd) , how to check what type of SSD to get? I see there are many different kind,

m.2 nvme
m.2 sata
sata
some put m.2 sata

Has any1 with this model added ssd before can advise? TIA
