Changing SSD in a Yoga X1

I want to replace the existing 256G SSD in my Yoga X1 with a 1TB SSD. At present I have a Samsung PM871 which is an M.2 with a SATA 6Gb interface. I presume the replacement needs to be M.2, but what other requirements are there? For instance, does it have to be SATA 6Gb? Or will PCIe work too, and would it be better? Would a Samsung 850 EVO M.2 1TB be suitable?

Re: Changing SSD in a Yoga X1

PCIe drives were used in that model, like an SM951a, fru 00JT074.  Safest is to use a drive that was offered in the machine.  The 850 is a retail drive and I would expect it to work, but I always suggest checking the return policy.

Re: Changing SSD in a Yoga X1

When I look at my system information it says I have a Samsung MZNLN256HCHP-000L7, and according to the Samsung website this is a PM871 which is a 256 GB Serial ATA 6.0 Gbps M.2. This is the SSD I am looking at replacing.

Re: Changing SSD in a Yoga X1

I understood what you meant.  I was trying to say that the system was sold with both SATA and PCIe drives,, so either can work.
