    Hi guys. I would like to replace with Samsung SSD 970 Pro 1TB. Is it possible to do it or i need to go to early versions like Transcend or OWC?

    It would help if you provide more info about the model - for example - check here

    It is important to Know what the specs of the MBP to know if the drive will fit and what type of SSD drive is needed.

    NVMe M.2 512GB or SATA III 500GB SSD ??

    that model requires a special SSD -like ploki said - here is a link for more info at iFixit

    Looks like it is $379 for the 1TB OWC version - click on the "parts info" and you can select the 1TB ssd

    Easy to do but make sure you buy the correct SSD

    You have more or less three options including the option @mikzn mentioned, the OWC one.
    So here it is
    Transcend JetDrive 725 960GB:

    OWC Aura Pro 6G 1TB:

    mSata adapter + Samsung EVO 860 mSata 1TB
