    so what do you recommend samsung/micron for a large M.2 for heavy useage? I'll decommission this laptop sometime in the next year and may put this m.2 into another build. "buy once, cry once."

    I would like to update Samsung pm951 nvme firmware. Currently BXV77D0Q firmware on board. There is 2b0qbxx7 update for NVMe SSD-950 PRO on Samsung site. Have anyone installed that update?

    I've found it in the user manual

    1. This Samsung Firmware Utility supports all Samsung Brand SSDs. If you have a computer with a Samsung SSD pre-installed(OEM versions), please contact the manufacturer of your computer...

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, there's no firmware update for pm951 at all.

    What @Vasudev says is correct. The 13/15/17 all use the same keyboards. But on the 15inch they add the macro keys separetely and on the 17 the numpad as well.

    Where are you from? I still got 2 keyboards laying around of which 1 is never used.
