The Acer Aspire V5 series all support the latest M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD standard

acer-aspire-v5-591g-76r6-notebook-intel-coretm-i7-39-6-cm-15-6-zoll-1000-gb-speicher-schwarz-15566615The new NVMe standard for M.2 SSD sticks is taking the market by a storm and everyone’s looking for an NVMe-capable machine but not everyone can afford one. Fortunately, the new “meta” is making its way into affordable notebooks as well so you can have a device with blazingly fast storage without breaking the bank. In the search of affordable NVMe-enabled laptops, we found out that the ASUS N752 and N552 feature the super-fast SSD standard but they can also be a bit over your budget. Luckily, the new Lenovo Ideapad 700 and the entire Acer Aspire V15 lineup are here for you.

If you are interested in buying the Acer Aspire V5-591G, check the following link: http://amzn.to/1Tum7Y0

You might have already read our piece on cheap NVMe-enabled laptop alternatives on the market but since then, we were able to confirm that the V15 Nitro Black Edition laptops aren’t the only ones that can get the speedy M.2 SSD sticks but also the more affordable Aspire V5-591G solutions with various configurations starting from around $750 – 800. Basically, the V5-591G is the same as the Ideapad 700 minus the IPS panel.

Stay tuned for more laptops coming with PCIe NVMe support as we continue to dig for more laptops to add to our M.2 compatibility list.

Unfortunately, I haven’t tried. I’ve bought my v5-591G with HDD+SSD SATA3. My answer is based on Internet forums and official Acer site: http://community.acer.com/t5/V-and-VN-Series-Laptops/Aspire-V5-591G-53HV-SSD-upgrade/td-p/415136 . In the future I’ll buy one.

Unfortunately guys, no matter how much I tried I couldn’t make the m.2 960 Samsung Evo nvme SSD work in my v5-591g. The laptop crashed as soon as the Nvidia graphics card were installed, after every format. I read that there were incompatibility issues between the card and the nvme SSD, but people seem to have overcome it. Not me though.

The bootdrive was gpt in uefi mode.

I would propose to do the upgrade in a shop so if it doesn’t work to just return the SSD.

The compatibility list, http://laptopmedia.com/laptop-m-2-ngff-ssd-compatibility-list/

shows Acer Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition (VN7-591G, GTX 960M) to be “SATA III”

i can confirm from own experience that Samsung EVO 960 ssd is not compatible with ACER V5-591G. You can install windows 10 on SSD,and everything works untill the moment NVIDIA 950m Graphic card drivers are installed. From that moment BLUE SCREE all the time. So i dont recomend it. Now i am looking for alternative SSD. Some checked alternatives that are working 100% ??? Thanks.

i have the exact same problem. Still not sure if it’s caused by the nvidia card drivers though. Blue screen comes after a few minutes when windows are reinstalled on the samsung ssd 960 evo.

Probably. Open up your laptop and see if there’s an M.2 slot. If so, then yes.
