Lenovo X1 (1st Generation) ThinkPad SSD Upgrade

Hi everyone. I was looking to upgrade my SSD in my X1 and was looking at the Samsung 850 Evo 500GB 2.5 inch SSD. Does anyone know if this SSD is compatible with the X1 or if it will fit? Thank you!

No x1 laptops don't use 2.5 drives so that won't work, idk what exactly it uses but it looks like a m.2 ssd but idk what type of M.2 it supports if it does normal M.2 or pci-e version

Also if I read right on this topic https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Upgrading-the-SSD-on-the-X1-Carbon/ta-p/11701...

It says x1 only supports up to 256GB SSD so I guess that's the 1st Gen they are talking about

Hi, I don't know if you've already resolved this problem yet, but I was able to upgrade my X1 (first gen) SSD with an adaptor card and MSATA SSD; I wrote a how here in this forum post. Hope this helps. Best //rolf

Thank you for everyone's help! I decided to keep the current drive and buy an external drive to move non important stuff off!
