M.2 SSD in x250 died... twice.

Good morning everyone.

 

I installed on my x250 (using a free WWAN slot) M.2 SSD disk - ADATA Premier SP600 256GB M.2 SSD. First installation: April 2016. The disk worked great. After a "BIG windows10 update" the drive began to freeze and died on August 2016. The drive was replaced with a new one. On March 2017 the problem returned (in the new disk) - again began to freeze and died.

From here my question arises - did I make a mistake somewhere? Do dear forumers who did similar installations on their x250 have similar problems? What can I do to prevent the problem on the third drive? During installation I did not mix anything in BIOS etc - just "plug ang play".

 

I would be very grateful for your help.

There isn't anything to screw up.  You put it in and turn it on.

Total WAG: is that slot intended for a single-sided SSD and the one you're using is double-sided?

 

There may be mechanical stress or (possibly) heat issues if you're using a double-sided device in a slot not intended for it.

 

No experience with this ... just tossing it out there...

Re: M.2 SSD in x250 died... twice.

Hello,

 

I used a 256GB MyDigital SSD in my X250, which I then upgraded to a 512GB model from ZTE, which is what is in there currently.  Both drives work fine and no SSD-related problems were noted during use.

 

Regards,

Re: M.2 SSD in x250 died... twice.

Good morning again Smiley Wink

 

Thank you so much for all answers. I installed disk just by plugin it in. M.2 slot looks to be double sided but it is only one way to install the disk. I did not notice any heating problem...

 

It is possible that the adata disks are just low quality made? I'm really confused ;/
