LENOVO X300 (mSATA SSD upgrade)

#1 Post by norrinraddhr » Sat Dec 07, 2019 1:32 pm

Hello,
have Lenovo X300 and want upgrade the mSATA SSD 64GB with someone bigger and faster but I don't know what to buy. I found some SSD on ebay, so can you help me to confirm can I use this SSD on my Lenovo X300?

Samsung 860 EVO 250GB mSATA SSD

Thanks!

X300 does not have an mSATA SSD and does not have an mSATA slot. You need a regular SATA SSD (preferred) or mSATA with an adapter (what for?)

Thanks dr_st!
Now I see it must be MicroSATA SSD 7+9 = 16 Pins. Have tried to find some from compatibility list but no results so I found something on ebay and AliExpress and they are for IBM/Lenovo X300.

I ordered a new INTEL DC S3500 80GB SSDSC1NB080G4R 1.8" SATA 6Gb/s MLC SSD. It's new, it's from compatibility list and it's P&P, don't need more storage, just to cover the space when I install Windows x64 bit. Maybe I try later with some miniSATA with adapter to micro SATA 1.8" when I find something cheap and interesting but for now I'm satisfied.
