2016-04-01, 19:27 PM

Hello ,

 

I Have a Y700 17-ISK , I woud Liketo Upgrade the M.2 SSD .

 

The question is , Do i need a certain type of SSD , or certain capacity limit ?

 

I was thinking of  Samsung 850 EVO 500 GB M.2 3.5-Inch SSD (MZ-N5E500BW) , Would this work for me ?

 

Thanks

I've read many success stories about the 250 Gb version of that SSD, but none about the 500 Gb version. Didn't see any failure either, it just seems that people prefer the 250 Gb... But I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work.

The one that people seems to have more success with is the Samsung EVO 850 250gb.

 

There seems to be some success but also more problems with the Samsung SM950 Pro and the SM951 Pro (NGFF version).

 

The size of the M.2 that fits the Y700 is 8,03 cm x 1,52 cm x 2,21 cm.

From what I've read, yeah the MZ-N5E500BW should work, but it's installation is not supported by Lenovo technical sevice. The one you have is actually the orgininal M.2 SSD that Lenovo puts into there laptops.

 

For more information, there's already many threads on the forum of this site :
