I'm using Lenovo Ideapad 320S-14IKB 81BN004YID I5 8250U,
Previously I have upgraded my RAM into 8 GB. and now I have a plan to upgrade my SSD (M.2),
my priority SSD M.2 :
1. SAMSUNG EVO 970 M.2 NVME 250GB (My first priority)
2. SAMSUNG EVO 860 M.2 250 GB
but, I have some concern, are both of those SSD is compatible with my notebook? mainly on "SAMSUNG EVO 970 M.2 NVME", since this SSD is my first priority.
or anyone has a better option? rather than my options?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
There are OEM recommended M.2 2280 PCIe SSD from the hardware manual (page 73-74 item7). Likewise Machine Type: 81BN here in parts lookup (click solid state drive under commodity to filter) shows tested storage for this model.
I was not able to search a confirmed upgrade yet with the Samsung evo 970 within our community yet but as long as specifications is the same then we expect it to work. In choosing 3rd party parts, it is always ideal to check for the return option just in case.
I hope this helps answer your query and help you decide how to proceed in your upgrade.

it seems this notebook support Support SSD M.2 PCIe/NVMe. cause i found Samsung MZVLV128HCGR on order part list that you mentioned above. and after checked this SSD is NVME
in lenovo product review guide, i only found spec :
Hard disk drive
• HDD: 2.5-inch, 7.0 mm SATA II/SATA III
• SSD: 2.5-inch / 2280, SATA II
no description regarding PCIE/ NVME SSD..that's why i'm wondering is my notebook support ssd PCIE/NVME or only M.2 SATA

Hi ruliharoen ,
It does support Form Factor: M.2 (2280), interface: PCI Express Gen3 x4 NVME SSD .
Example of one of the recommended SSD is Samsung MZVLW128HEGR model PM961 although capacity offer is just 128GB.
On the hardware manual on page 73, you also have part number 5SD0M56301 Description: SSD, XG4 128GB M.2 2280 PCIe-NVMe THNSN5128GPUK SSD

thanks for your input. but actually, my concern is the laptop support SSD M.2 with PCIE 3 x4 or only support SSD M.2 SATA. since my first priority is Samsung evo 970 which is NVME . and i don't get information about the NVME support on my notebook.
