Yes. The mSATA device would go into the WWAN slot.

It may go by the name MTS400S .

Note: In the FRU list, Lenovo uses the term mSata.This may be wrong.

It is correct.  It is big and wide. 2242.  mSATA used in the WWan slot.

It is NOT slim jim. 2280  which  is long and skinny.

It is NOT mSata. See post below.  The FRU list states mSata (This is wrong).  Thanks Zman for the correction.

IT IS NOT MSATA.PNGFRU list Name of item is WRONG

Re: thinkpad t450 ssd M2 2242

Hi both,

 

If I may pick a nit:  it isn't mSATA, it's a SATA m.2 SSD.  mSATA and m.2 are different form factors and don't fit in the same socket.

Re: thinkpad t450 ssd M2 2242

Why does the 2242 drive have two notches and the 2280 only have one? The WWAN slot has just one notch as the M.2 NVMe primary SSD

The WWAN slot is Sata. 2 slots. ie, "keys".

t450.PNGIf you post a picture of the WWAN slot, we can review together.

You machine has 0 m.2 2280 pci/e 3.x4 2280 support that I can find.

The video shows 2 slots, 2242, as expected. SATA.

Re: thinkpad t450 ssd M2 2242

hi all,

 

you need a m.2 ssd, size 2242, must be a sata-drive -> not a nvme-drive !

 

i actually installed right now the transcend TS512GMTS400S on my t450 - and it is working.

recognized at BIOS (version 1.35) and also at device manager. no problems at all.

 

so just for those, who are still thinking about :-)

 

best regards, nayss

 

post scriptum : now attached the product sheet, the 440s ist the device :

 

32GB - TS32GMTS400S
64GB - TS64GMTS400S
128GB - TS128GMTS400S
256GB - TS256GMTS400S
