SSD Specification for X270 WWAN slot

Good evening all! I am a very happy owner of an X270 laptop, running Gentoo Linux. Everything (with the exception of fingerprint recognition) works very well indeed. I want to put a second SSD in the WLAN slot, but I am struggling to find clear specifications as to what can be fitted. Can anyone please point out where I should be able to find this information, or better still give me a clear specification so I can order a drive. I am looking at https://www.scan.co.uk/products/256gb-scanfx-sm961-polaris-m2-nvme-mlc-v-nand-ssd-pcie-30-x4-read-31...

It appears to be correct, but I am not sure if the physical size is OK or not.

 

Many thanks for your support!

Re: SSD Specification for X270 WWAN slot

Hello and welcome,

 

I don't have hands on experience but based on these documents that SSD won't work.

 

First, the 2nd SSD goes in the WWAN slot - presuming you don't have WWAN or WiGig already.  The WWAN slot doesn't support NVMe, and isn't that physical size.

"Some: 128GB M.2 SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, in WWAN slot as 2nd Storage,

mutually exclusive with WWAN and WiGig"

 

Looking at the HMM, the SSD tha would fit is 2242 SATA.

 

Hardware Maintenance Manual - ThinkPad X270

 

The SSD you linked is 80mm NVMe and could go in the primary slot - with proper frame and cable - but not in the WWAN slot.

Thanks - I will have a look for some drives which seem to meet the specification, and post links here for comment!
