Y700 touch 15isk , question about ssd connection?

I have the Y700 touch 15 isk with a single wd 1tb hardrive.

I have read all of the ssd threads on here , still a little confused about the connectivity..

Is the m.2 port a sata 3 , sata6 or a PCIe?.

If it's a PCIe can I used a PCIe x4 ssd?

 

 

Thanks ahead of time.

Hi jmececil , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

Storage specifications (page 27) for this model : 

 

SATA controller Smiley Frustratederial ATA, SATA 6.0Gb/s support, integrated in chipset 

• 2.5-inch, 7 mm SATA III (Some: HDD / 2.5" wide, 7mm high ) 
• 500 GB / 1 TB, 5400rpm
• HYBRID 1 TB 5400rpm SSHD (8G)  (Some: Hybrid drive with 8GB NAND fl ash memory / 2.5" wide, 7mm high)

 

• SSD, NGFF, 128 GB / 256 GB / 512 GB  (Some: M.2 Solid State Drive (SSD), via M.2 card slot) 

 

You may check on its location for storage Page 40 (one for SATA HHD /Hybrid SATA another for the M.2 SSD)

Other variants may have both SATA 6 HDD and M.2 SSD .  

 

From this discussion they verified this SSD to work . Other upgrade discussion here for review. 

FRU listing from the manual as OEM recommendation on item 12 pages 78-79 . As some may have compatibility issues,

 

Update us how you plan to proceed. 

 

Regards

My M.2 is a LITEON CV1-8B512 running at SATA/600, so indeed SATA III. I personally don't have any pcie M.2 devices to test sadly.
