Hello everybody,

I have a Lenevo Yoga 530 14ARR (Model 81H9) with only 128Go SSD drive.
After many serach, it seemes to me the actual SSD is a M.2/B-M-Key (PCIe 3.1a x2) 2242 format .

I opened the beast and confirm 2242 format and hole for secure ssd is only for 2242 even if there is a place to use 2280 (place and .

I don't trust in ssd found with this format (unknow name),

So do you knows where i can found a good ssd for this format (512GB or 1TB) or a way to secure SSD with 2280 ?

Thanks

Since the motherboard does not include a mounting hole for a different size drive, and the area is filled with other things, you are stuck with that format. Western Digital and SanDisk look to make drives in that format, both are good brands.

The only ssd i found in this format is SATA III not PCI-E.
On official site of Sandisk and WD, there are 2280 ssd, i think the 2242 format is not use T_T
