Yoga 2 Pro - SSD advice - Model 20266

2016-05-22, 5:39 AM

I was wondering does all yoga pro 2 harddrive slot built to work with all msata harddrive. I'm currently thinking about upgrading my solid state and need a definite answer; not a guessing as I do not want to have to return and pay the differences or mess up the laptop itself:

 

Samsung 850 EVO 1 TB mSATA 2-Inch SSD (MZ-M5E1T0BW)

 

If the above solid state does not work, please advise on which drive will work. I needed to upgrade 500gb +.

 

Mod's Edit: System model added to front of Subject line to improve visibility / clarity.

 

Solved! See the solution

Hello and welcome,

 

According to the base spec the Y2P uses a 2.5" main drive and doesn't have mSATA or m.2 slots.

Why do you think yours does?  What is the model number of the currently installed SSD?

Hi yaajcawv,

 

I'm running Yoga 2 Pro (20266) with Windows 10 and correct drivers installed (Setup Guide).
Samsung 850 EVO 1TB SDD mSata with Magician activated has a noticeable increase in performance and lower power consumption.
