Dear Lenovo community,
I am considering an ssd upgrade. I know that my laptop (Lenovo Legion Y520-15IKBN) supports m.2 NVMe gen 3.0 x4, but is it compatible with gen 3.0 x2? I found some good deals, they are actually about half the price of an x4 ssd ...
Also, what length does it support? I found a link for the ssd that comes in it (in higher configurations), so is that the maximum length?
Thanks in advance for your reply.

Hi Faniel007, i had the same question because i have bought pcie 3.0 x2 NVMe by mistake. After a while i decided to try it on Legion y520-15ikbn and it works, so it seems that it is compatible even if it's not listed.

If the SSD is m.2 2280 It should fit in. If its 2260 i think that you'll need adapter for it. Just make sure that it's NVMe and not SATA since SATA is not supported for Y520-15IKBN
