Compatibility of GL553VE with 2TB firecuda (SSHD)

Hello.
I am wondering about the compatibility of the laptop that I have with a SSHD.
When I check the specifications website it does not have any information on the compatibility.
It only says it has a 1TB SSHD versions of the latop, nothing about compatible storage devices.
I got a model without a harddrive in it, only an M.2 SSD and need to have more storage.
The website saying 1TB is worrying me on purchasing a 2TB drive, but I would like around 2TB since I am planning or storing video footage.

I know that some systems have a problem with the storage capacity of harddrives due to stuff like operating system (mine is 64 so no problem I think), Power supply issues, or drives on motherboards (my desktop required a driver to have harddisks over 3TB to run on it).
Thats why I was wondering if there could be any other restrictions that I did not know about that would prevent the 2TB SSHD from working.
I do not want to go through the trouble or returning the item.

the laptop should be able to accept those high capacity HDDs

 

I have stuck a 2TB HDD to my Dell laptop and i just need to do a fresh install of the OS with GPT and you get around 1.8TB of disk space

 

the spec is just what the laptop may come with HDD and SSD combo.

 

in your case, just pop the HDD in

 

go to disk management

 

choose GPT and do a quick format and you should get your 2TB HDD running.

 

no BIOS settings to change

There are two versions of the 2TB FireCuda, 2.5" (model ST2000LX001) and 3.5" (model (ST2000DX002). The majority of laptops can only fit 2.5" size drives, so if this is the case with yours, make sure to go with the 2.5" model.
