lenovo y500 free mpcie/msata slot

2013-04-10, 13:38 PM

In my Lenovo y500 there is a free mpcie/msata slot that is not explained in the hardware maintainence manual. I am mostly interested in using it to plug in a mpcie or msata SSD. So has anyone tried that? Is it possible? Which technology does this port support?

Best regards

I have a Mushkin Atlas Deluxe in mine, it works great. It should support SATA III ,devices and SATA I, II as well. If it doesn't, it will support SATA II in the least.
