Bait and switch on hardware

ASUS - Gaming Laptop - 15.6" 120 Hz IPS-type - AMD Ryzen 7 3750H (up to 4.0 GHz) - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti - 16 GB RAM - 256 GB SSD - 1 TB HDD - Windows 10 Home - TUF (TUF505DU-EB74)

Pros: It's been a good computer. Plays games well, and does everything it's supposed to.

Cons: Secondary traditional drive is beginning to fail. This is how I found the bait and switch. I figured if I need to replace my secondary data drive, I might as well upgrade my NVMe drive to something larger than 256gb. COD MW 2019 is 180gb and new games take up a lot of room. The spec on this computer shows 256gb PCIe NVME drive. It has an m.2 PCIe slot, but the drive in it is not NVME. It is NGFF. This is a total bait and switch, and I don't think I'm going to buy another Asus product after this.

Overall Review: It will soon be getting an new SSD 2.5 drive for data and an actual NVME drive. It's a shame that my data drive is failing in less than a year of ownership, but it happens. I still would have given 5 stars until I opened the laptop to see what form factor (length) of the NVMe drive, and then found that I have been lied to.
