Re: Is t431s msata SATA 2 or 3?

The M./2 slot in T431s is SATA3 (6Gbps) keep in mind not all SSD can read/write that speed, so choose wisely.

 

Also I'd like to mention for those who astutely noted that M.2 is smaller than mSATA SSD...  M.2 devices are also subject to being single-sided or double-sided.  Fortunately, the M.2 slot in T431s can fit either.

I don't understand the "choose wisely" part. The interface is backward compatible.

Yes backward compatible, I was just saying it doesn't matter if it's SATA3 if you end up putting a slower SSD in the slot.

With NGFF (M.2) being a new form factor, I expect the manufacturers will be releasing device with SATA 6Gbit/s. Whether the actual use-cases do saturate that speed is another matter.
