Yes, a 2.5" SATA model would be absolutely compatible.

It has M.2 slots but I don't know if there are any limitations as there are several models and only SOME allow an NVMe M.2, while others will only support a SATA M.2 according to the spec HERE.

From other similar posts here on TH, I suspect that your motherboard will not support NVMe but only SATA M.2, which is IMO pointless over a 2.5" SATA SSD.

Doesn't appear so.


What WILL work?
A 2.5" SATA III SSD.
Samsung 860 EVO or Crucial MX500.
