Good day to all. I hape an HP 14 bs072tx. I opened the laptop up to see that it has a M.2 slot on the motherboard. Now, I'm going to purchase one but I still can't choose which type it is compatible with. Is it NVME or SATA? I'm avoiding incompatibilities because it's a hassle to return the product lol

read all about it.
It seems that the m.2 connector is optional.

Any recent m.2 sata ssd would do.
Looking at an m.2 type ssd, it has 2 cut-outs on the edge connector.

The similar looking M type NVME or PCIe ssd does only have 1 cut-out on the the edge connector
These types have much faster data transfer and is way more pricy.
But it wont fit in your HP anyway.

I looked into that post. It seems that SATA is the way to go so now, Im looking for one. It's the Kingston A400 m.2 sata ssd. Is that sufficient for my laptop?
