Re: DONT buy any T series laptop with an SSD drive.....

using speccy or hwinfo would provide the exact model of the drive without physically removing it.....

however - if it's the mini 2242 sata drive that's causing issues then i'd say it's a bios related pwm issue as many have had the same issue.
(i'd say disabling the rapid start option would be a solution but that's really old school and I doubt the WWAN/SSD option was designed to be used as cache these days.

it its the nvme drive - i dunno what to say man - its a 2 lane drive and you're spending a lot of $$ for the performance output that is slightly better than a top class SATA SSD.

I'd avoid anything pcie related for the time being until the higher powers have agreed to wards a universal standard while ensuring their financial interests are protected.

there is no real world advantage for an end-user to be using pci-e based ssd over AHCI.

Yep, second replacement hard drive arrived and sure enough the laptop won't rebuild with the USB media. I am now waiting for a tech to come and replace my motherboard for the 2nd time in 6 months..... I am done with Lenovo and their awful support. To spend hours on the phone trying to get this heap of junk sent back and then get told I can only return within the first 30 days. It is now a boat anchor the laptop..... Complete and utter waste of cash..... Thanks Lenovo, you sold me a lemon.....

Yeah, I think this person just wants to rant.

 

anyway, I will recommend Samsung SSDs - never had a failure.

Why do I just want to rant.... Why are you trolling groups bugging people when they are having issues with the crap they bought from Lenovo?

I have to be honest, what has it got to do with you. Every Lenovo machine I have owned previous to this one has never had issue so what???? Good for you..... Do you want a purple heart or something? Maybe you messing with documents or excel spreadsheets every day doesnt over work the crap.... I do real work thanks.... go back to your sweeping or cleaning or whatever you do and stop replying....

I use an old T500 for gaming as it has a Radeon GPU so I wanted to see how long it would last. 5 years later it still plays games.
