Costco -- Legion Y520 no SATA connectors...

2018-08-27, 23:45 PM

Purchased a Legion Y520-15IKBM from my local Costco a few days ago. When I went to install a 2TB 2.5" HDD into the laptop, I discovered that the latop didn't have any SATA connection for a 2.5" drive. This is despite the fact that the void where the HDD would sit is still there.

 

This is concerning, because I bought this model on recommendation from a friend who had previously bought the same model (also from the same Costco), but his had the SATA connection. I also look on Lenovo's product page, and all available configs show both the M.2 and SATA connections.

 

Did Lenovo pull a fast one with the model configuration? Or did I somehow get a faulty config?

 

In either case, without the SATA port, and being limited exclusively to a single M.2 SVME drive, I'm going to have to return this Y520. Plenty of horsepower, but not enough storage for more than a couple games of any size. For the cost of a 1TB M.2 drive, I might as well look at a more expensive laptop altogether, preferably one that comes with at least 1 SATA connector.
