SSD are costly compared to hard disk drives (HDDs), but the performance boost you receive makes up for it. Generally, the SSD installation process is the same for all the Acer Aspire A315 Laptops series. However, some Acer Aspire A315 series laptops will just have a single M.2 port where an M.2 NVMe or M.2 SATA SSD will already be placed. However, some Acer laptops a supports M2.SATA SSD or a M.2 NVMe SSD both.


Note the notches on the SSD and the corresponding nub/s in the slot. Certain M.2 drives have a single notch on either the right side or left side of the module, which indicates a B or M key drive, respectively.

A B key means it can operate at up to x2 PCIe or in SATA; an M key means it can operate at up to x4 PCIe or SATA.

  1. Hello! I don’t know if the author of this page will read this or not, but I’m pretty confused. I have the same Acer A315-53G exactly. So, if I’m installing an NVMe SSD into the slot, will it still work? People are saying this is a SATA only slot so even if the NVMe SSD fits, it won’t work properly. Did you face any problems with that?
