Beware of Lenovo "compatible" SSD in X1C6 and T480s

#1 Post by Puppy » Tue Aug 14, 2018 6:11 am

We already now that Lenovo plays lottery with their customers regarding "compatible" displays and keyboards.

Recent reports have revealed another issue, X1 Carbon 6 and T480s customers are getting crappy Lenovo branded SSD instead of Samsung ones. According NotebookCheck review of E480 the Lenovo branded NVMe SSD is so slow, that even a SATA III SSD is faster:

As we looked for the model number of the SSD built into the E480, we found a little surprise: The SSD with the model number LENSE20256GMSP34MEAT2TA is produced by Lenovo itself.

This proprietary Lenovo product is a PCIe NVMe SSD in M. 2-2280 format with a capacity of 256 GB. The test results in the storage benchmarks are weak: The SSD is fast in sequential read testing, but otherwise it is an NVMe-PCIe SSD of the slowest kind. So slow, even the SATA III SSD in the ThinkPad E470 is sometimes considerably faster.
