M2 SSDs for T431s

2013-06-26, 16:49 PM

Hello,

 

Crucial is about to release its new M500 M.2 SSD.

 

the crucial part number is CT120M500SSD4.PK01 and according to documentation it's a "M.2 (2280-D2-B-M) SSD".

 

Does it fit the t431s M2 port?

 

If not, are there large M.2 SSDs (120 gb at least) which would fit this port?

 

many thanks for informations. 

 

regards

T431s uses M.2 2242 form factor, but like Gan mentioned it will support either single or double sided.

Hi Mikael,

 

The Crucial should fit into the T431s M2 port.

 

The T431s M2 port is SATA3 (6Gbps) and both single-sided or double-sided devices should fit. SATA2 devices should work as well in the T431s M2 port.

Hi Gan,

thank you very much for your indications.

actually, I'm worried about the M500 lenght, which may not fit the M2 port according to the following illustrations.

 

Here's the t431s M.2 wireless WAN card:

and here's how the M500 looks like:

 

 

not much like the WWAN card...
