Re: X240 M.2 SSD

Thanks for that info ibmthink.

 

The tabook doesn't specify the M.2 SSD physical size (42mm):

 

M.2 SSD:

Some: Single-sided M.2 SSD, via M.2 Card slot, exclusive with Smart Card reader
Some: Double-sided M.2 SSD, via M.2 Card slot, exclusive with WWAN card

 

But it is specific about the HDD slot:

 

SATA disk:

Some: SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high, removable, upgradable
Some: HDD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm or 9.5mm high, removable,
upgradable, Shock Mounted Hard Drive, Active Protection System

 

Confirming ibmthink's info.

 

Regards,

Z.

Re: X240 M.2 SSD

The biggest capacity for 2242 form factor is 256GB for now.

The best m.2 ssd 42mm is the SP900 adata 256GB which writes and reads above 500mb/s

The SC or the super boot ssd from my diggital are very slow. They write it writes up to 400mb/s, but on the factory site producing them is written 140mb/s

Personally I have never reached more than 136MB/s write on that SC and SB drives. So get the Adata one.

Good luck

Re: X240 M.2 SSD

Did you manage to install a 1TB SSD in your X240? I asked Lenovo and they told me that the X240 doesn't support SSDs of more than 512Gb...

Re: X240 M.2 SSD

Old thread but thought I would post. I have installed a 1TB HDD into my x240 (and x250) and it works just fine. Probably going to upgrade to the 2TB drive soon (digital pictures, sheesh...).

 

I also have a 256GB M2 42mm drive where I store movies to watch. Drive is super fast and plays back movies just fine.

Re: X240 M.2 SSD

do you install M2 and SATA storage device together on one laptop?

so it's like primary and secondary drive?

Re: X240 M.2 SSD

Yup. the M.2 drive is a second drive. I believe some people have configured it as their primary drive, but I just didn't want to futz with it and figure out how to do a full windows install from backup media to the M.2 drive. I just cloned my original 500GB drive to the 2TB drive and put all the extra space into my "data" partition. The M.2 drive is just another "drive" that I use to store media (movies)
