I'd like to know if anybody has successfully used any retail 500GB 2.5" SATA SSDs in the t470? My system shipped with a 500GB 7200RPM drive, so I just want to swap it out with a SATA SSD and not backorder the NVMe cable adapter etc.
I see from the parts list only 2 that are listed compatible, but they are 3x more expensive than they should be:
Sandisk SD8TB8U-512G-1001 (x400)
I'm looking at these, which are all affordable:
Samsung 860 EVO 500GB
Kingston A400 or UV500 480GB
Intel 545s 512GBWD Blue 500GB.
If anybody has any of these models (or others I haven't thought of) running reliably in their T470 I'd love to hear from you.

Any 2.5" wide, 7mm high SSD will work just fine in your T470, and will install with no modifications.
The Samsung 860 EVO is one of the fastest SATA SSD's out there, and with a 5-year warranty it is always a good choice.
