I recently bought a HP Pavilion Gaming 15-cx0002ns, which has a 256 SSD M.2 installed, and I would like to add an additional SSD. It doesn't have a HDD, but it has a empty space (marked in red) and a empty slot (marked in orange). Is it possible to connect there a 2.5" SSD with some kind of adapter?
In the video the guy just replaced the HDD with a SDD, but as you can see, my laptop doesn't have one. It has a space (which I marked in red), but I'm not sure if I can place an SSD 2.5" in there. What do you think?
Honestly, not 100% sure.... It's really kind of hard to judge the depth/space in the pic you posted.
You'd need the cable, absolutely. As for a bracket.....probably.
Depends though. An SSD doesn't "need" to be secured down, like an HDD does. No moving parts. If the chassis would hold it firmly in place, then the bracket isn't necessary (IMO).
If there's any movement though, you run the risk of it disconnecting.
