I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-17ISK laptop and I'm looking forward to add an SSD disk. I scanned my laptop with Speeccy and it seems that I have 2 PCIe slots available for new devices. The first one is x1. The second one is x4.
So, my question is if my laptop has got a M.2 2280 connector. The SSD model I wanna buy is this "SSD WESTERN DIGITAL BLACK 256GB M.2 2280 PCIE GEN3 X4".
Thanks in advance,

Hi Paper Tape,
I'll like your clarity in your answer.
Subsequent question: does this mean that any SSD - formfactor M.2 2280 will be OK?
I own a y700 15ISK with 128Gb SSD and would like to upgrade to 250Gb or 500Gb SSD - next to the 1Tb HDD for data storage.
The information I'm getting from Lenovo is not that clear and their SSD alternative are no longer up to date with current SDD offers.

No, not every M.2 2280 SSD will be OK.
The SSD for your laptop needs to be a "PCIe x4 M.2 2280 NVMe" type.
The other type is "M.2 2280 SATA III". This type is not suitable for your laptop.

I did manage to replace the SSD!!
Used the following steps:
I installed the Samsung NVMe SSD 960EVO M.2 ( 250GB) ( model: MZ-V6E250 - Model Code: MZ-V6E250BW)
All is working as it should.
