Hi there,
I have a question about the SSD Drive..Is the SSD Drive compatible with the HP Envy 15-ep0098nr? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

It is compatible. BUT, your laptop is not PCIe 4 capable (only PCIe 3) like the drive is, so you will only get around half the advertised speed of the 980.

If speed is what attracted you to the drive, consider getting a native PCIe 3 SSD, instead, like the 970 EVO plus, or SK Hynix Gold P31 (which is incredibly power efficient if you are on battery a lot). It will be just as fast and save you some money.

Hi there,
Second thought I will go for the SK Hynix Gold P31 since it's very affordable and fast.
