Upgrading the SSD on my A475 (Т470), poss two drives

2019-04-27, 1:23 AM

Right now it has a small Samsung M2 drive in there model number is MZVLW256HEHP, however i'm unsure what M2 drive to get, i thought they were just smaller SSD's but it seems their is more than one kind (what a shocker tech is confusing) it would seem this kind of drive i have runs of pci lanes which is new to me as i have always worked with SATA, can someone explain to me in simple English what's going on and what kind of drive i need to replace it with, looking for 500GB?

 

On top of this i have seen people talking about 2 drives going in the machine (not raid) but a single card in the 2.5 bay and another in the wifi slot i think it was, if this is the case what slot would be best to host the main OS drive? and what kind of drive would go in the wifi slot.

 

So in a nutshell, if 2 drives can be put in what is the best way to do it and what specs should i be looking for as to new drives, I live in UKand want a reliable drive.

Late to the game but you can use a NVME drive in the WWAN slot if you're running windows.   It doesn't show up in my Fedora OS.  I've tried a few Lives OSs and they just lock up somehow due to the drive.
