Hello there!

I have an Acer Aspire A514-51K that I want to add the NVMe SSD in.
I found this one on the web that I wanted to be installed in my laptop: https://www.adata.com/tz/award/597?tab=description
My laptop is capable to have SSD NVMe PCie gen 3.0 x 2 2280

My question is, can I install that SSD in my laptop?
I asked because I am confused; the tech support told me it can be installed with reduced speed while the store selling the SSD said that my laptop is not capable to have this SSD, one of them said my processor is not fulfilling the threshold (7th gen Core i3)

Sorry for this rookie question :) I am still new on upgrading things.
Stay safe and healthy!

f it's capable that and other NVMe drives should work, Only speed reduction would be in case of NVMe drive is PCIe v4 which would run at v4 speeds.

Is there more to the model number?
You might want to open the laptop and verify there is a m.2 slot.
