Hi All,

 

Can you use a Samsung 500G mSATA SSD 860 EVO and will it work?

 

Regards,

 

Lee

Lenovo Think Pad L540

2018-09-21, 9:56 AM

I am needing a second drive, but SSD 2242 are very rare in Australia and need one quickly. Are there other computers that use a 2242 or devices that I could re-claim an SSD 2242 or is there another way to create a second drive for the computer.

 

Regards,

Lee

M.2 2242 SSD are rare here too (and I guess worldwide is the same), if you need a second disk and don't need the optical drive you could try using a HDD/SSD caddy like this: click here!, then you put a standard 2.5" SSD in the drive bay and a bigger HDD in the caddy.

The same SSDs are used in many xx40 and xx50 generation ThinkPad, I guess other brands as well...
