Can i install ssd by myself or it will void the warranty, or should i go to lenovo's service center and have it installed there.
Service center guy is saying if they will install the ssd, the service charge will be 1000INR, and the warranty will remain intact. Is he lying or its true?

So replacing the peripherals by myself will void the warranty. Does it void warranty if done through service center?

Generally speaking, you can replace the HDD with the SSD. However, if your laptop develops problems, then you need to reinstall the original hard drive before sending in the laptop to be serviced. Lenovo will not offer support if you send it back with the SSD because that is not part of the configuration when you purchased the laptop. Remove any additional RAM you installed is also a good idea.

I want to install ssd in place of optical drive, i want extra space of hdd drive also. So i just have to put optical drive back and can have my laptop repaired if any thing goes wrong?
Do i have to keep the power rating of optical drive and ssd in mind also or the require same power?
This is my first laptop, so sorry for dumb questions. I have always dealt with desktop.
And one more thing it doesn't matter who put the ssd, i just have to replace it with original when going through RMA or they have some sort of warranty stickers on screws.

Same issue here: drive on x520 failed like 6 months later. As it needed an upgrade I changed it out for a 500 then a 1TB, 3 drives later (and 5+ years) optical drive and RAM went.
