mSATA solid state drives are some of the hottest SSDs on the market today, popping up in a variety of the latest mobile devices, netbooks, and notebook PCs. As time goes on, more and more people are catching wind of the SSD trend, which is no surprise to us since the performance of these drives are head and shoulders above the rest. There is really so much to love about these mSATAs - the difference is very noticeable when a small PC notebook using an mSATA SSD can boot-up and load applications faster than a top-of-the-line HDD desktop only five years ago.

At My Digital Discount, we have had a number of customers ask us if their computers are mSATA compatible. The following is a list of some of the most popular mSATA compatible models being used today:

Maciek Ziuzia - We couldn't find confirmation either but, based on the XT3 i7's specifications, it seems like it should be possible.

For further assistance, please contact our Tech Support team directly at info@mydigitaldiscount.com.

------------------------------

Jerry - Under $60, the largest capacity you'll find currently is a 64GB.

http://www.mydigitaldiscount.com/solid-state-drives-sata-m.2-ngff-ssd/?xsearch_price=20.00-50.00

If you're willing to spend an additional $5 to $10 you can double the storage capacity with a 128GB.

Looking for MSATA drive for a HP pavillion DM4 3090SE.

can you recommend a few? dont want to spend more than $60
Maciek Ziuzia Sunday, December 14, 2014 09:28:09
I have DELL XT3 (I7 version) model with half mini msata slot (with sign SSD) but I cannot find any note if this slot is bootable and can use operating system.

ShermanTseng - Yes, it actually uses 2 mSATA drives in RAID 0 to make either a 128GB (two 64GB drives) or 256GB (two 128GB drives) Ultrabook.

Thank you for bringing that to our attention! We've added the S5 to our list.

------------------------------

arlbe - Looking around online, we've seen other 350 G1 users unable to boot from the mSATA drive but our Tech Support team is willing to help you try and find a work around if you're interested in testing it out.

As far as a boot drive recommendation, MyDigitalSSD BP4 drives found in the link below should give you the best results.

http://www.mydigitaldiscount.com/mydigitalssd-msata-ssd/?&sort=alphaaz&sort_direction=0&xsearch_e11=MyDigitalSSD%20BP4

------------------------------

Vince - The E5420 does not have an mSATA slot. You can however remove your optical drive bay and add a second 2.5" HDD or SSD with the use of a hard drive caddy.

mSATA drives can be converted to 2.5" SATA drives, without effecting performance, by using the adapter enclosure in the link below.

http://www.mydigitaldiscount.com/mydigitalssd-msata-to-2.5-inch-sata-iii-6g-ssd-adapter-enclosure/

------------------------------

omdy - No. You would actually need a 'True miniPCIe' card and they do not exist as an SSD.
omdy Monday, December 8, 2014 19:32:01
Hi! I have a Sony VGN-TXN15p. I don't need the Sprint card in a free Mini PCIe slot. I'm not sure if it's mSATA compatible, but wouldn't a PATA-Mini PCIe work? The machine already takes PATA 50pin 1.8 HD. It should theoretically work, and even be bootable. Am I correct?
Vince Monday, December 8, 2014 10:35:15
Hi, does the Delll Lattitude E5420 support mSATA?

Thanks.
arlbe Sunday, December 7, 2014 07:24:48
Hp 350 G1, would like to know if onboard msata slot can be used as a boot drive? and what is recommended.
ShermanTseng Friday, December 5, 2014 19:24:24
Hi, Does Acer Aspire S5-391 use mSata SSD? Thanks.
MyDigitalDiscount.com Wednesday, December 3, 2014 12:34:50
Jacob - If you can, please send photos of the slot to our Tech Support Team at info@mydigitaldiscount.com. They should be able to better answer your question after seeing those.

------------------------------

Doshunn - We couldn't find any mention of the L750/755 being mSATA compatible so we're leaning towards no. You may want to contact Toshiba directly to confirm that though.
Doshunn Wednesday, December 3, 2014 12:02:52
Hi there, does my Toshiba Satellite L750/755 have mSATA?
Thanks !
Jacob Tuesday, December 2, 2014 15:36:39
I'm staring at what looks like an mSATA slot with the peg and screws and everything near the southbridge chip on my hp Pavilion dv7-3160us
Product WA793UA#ABA. Your list says only pavilion dv6's. Is there such a thing as an mSATA slot you can't use for a ssd??
MyDigitalDiscount.com Monday, December 1, 2014 15:23:43
Chris - Thank you for bringing that to our attention, the XT2 is not mSATA compatible. We have adjusted our list accordingly.

------------------------------

RayK - You can install an mSATA, not microSATA, SSD in the WWAN slot of your E6540 as seen in the link below.

http://www.laptopultra.com/guide/how-to-disassemble-dell-latitude-e6540-to-add-ssd-and-upgrade-ram-memory/

If you have any issues with the drive being recognized in the BIOS, contact out Tech Support team at info@mydigitaldiscount.com and they'll help walk you through it.

------------------------------

Gunter - Yes, it certainly is! Thank you for the heads up, we've added it to our list.

------------------------------

Manu - We can't find anything that would lead us to believe the k112tx is mSATA compatible. Your best bet for increased performance is upgrading your Envy's hard drive with an SSD.
Manu Monday, December 1, 2014 14:31:55
Does the hp envy k112tx have msata ssd slot or anyway of adding one to it for fast boot n app loading ?
Gunter Saturday, November 29, 2014 15:26:39
I have a Toshiba kirabook. Is it compatible with the mSATA SSDs?
RayK Friday, November 28, 2014 19:08:47
I have a Dell Latitude E6540 and I would like to install a microSATA card in the WWAN slot. Can you confirm that it will be recognized by the BIOS and can I boot from this card?
Chris Thursday, November 27, 2014 16:08:06
I own a Dell Latitude XT2. It is on this list. Are you trying to say the WWAN Port will run mSATA = Mini sata = wifi card looking thing? Not uSATA = micro sata = 1.8 drive under the battery. Very commonly mislabeled.
MyDigitalDiscount.com Tuesday, November 25, 2014 07:47:17
Mike,

The UX31A actually has a proprietary SSD that is neither mSATA or M.2 NGFF compatible. To our knowledge, there are no 3rd party upgrades available at this time.
Mike Monday, November 24, 2014 15:11:46
Is the ASUS Zenbook UX31A mSATA compatible or is it NGFF? If so, would the Plextor PX-256M5M 256GB SATA III 6.0Gb/s mSATA work?
MyDigitalDiscount.com Wednesday, November 19, 2014 07:44:50
Bogdan,

From what we could find, your best bet when upgrading the Flex 2 is to replace the hard drive with a 2.5" SATA SSD.
Bogdan Wednesday, November 19, 2014 00:32:56
Lenovo flex 2 15 with i5 4210u and bga1168 socket , does it has msata slot for ssd? Or i just need to replace it with the hdd? Thanks
MyDigitalDiscount.com Tuesday, November 18, 2014 11:13:26
Rafael Escobar - We don't have much hands on experience with the T430U but according to the Lenovo manual in the link below, there is mention of mSATA compatibility depending on your model.

http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/docs/UM015821

It seems some T430Us come with an mSATA drive while others come with a PCI Express Mini Card for wireless WAN. What we're unsure of is, if your ThinkPad comes with a PCI Express Card, whether it can be swapped out for an mSATA SSD without too much trouble. It's possible, but we simply don't know for sure.

You may want to ask around on some Lenovo message boards to see if any other T430U owners have had success replacing a PCI Express Card with an mSATA SSD. We've found them to be quite helpful in the past.

------------------------------

opik - It looks like the E5440, E5540, E5550, and E6540 have the option to be mSATA compatible, but whether they are or not may vary based on the model you have.

You may want to double check with Dell for more information before placing an order.

As far as the adapter goes, yes, that will allow an mSATA SSD to work in any 2.5" SATA SSD slot.
opik Tuesday, November 18, 2014 09:11:24
Hi,

Does Dell Latitude E5540/E5440, Latitude E6540/E6540, Latitude E5550/E5450 supports mSata?

And could I use adapter when computer doesn't support mSATA, but I have one? Crucial M500 240GB.
http://www.uittek.com/18-inch-msata-ssd-to-25-sata-hard-disk-adapter-converter-case-for-dell-lenovo-ibm_p414.html

Thanks!
Rafael Escobar Monday, November 17, 2014 17:33:45
Hi. Do you know if the Lenovo T430U is mSATA compatible?
MyDigitalDiscount.com Monday, November 17, 2014 08:18:14
Jan,

From what we could find, your 5740G appears to have a mini PCI Express slot that is not mSATA compatible. Mini PCI Express SSDs are tough to come by and there's no guarantee that it will work in your machine if you find one.

Because of this, it looks like your best bet for boosting performance is by replacing the 2.5" HDD in your notebook with an SSD. Sorry about that.
Jan Friday, November 14, 2014 07:36:39
My Acer Aspire 5740G 334G64MN has a slot, which seems to be a mSata slot. Same connector as the HDD drive. Space for a small card, held with 1 screw. Yet I cannot find any confirmation in specs on any internet site. Maybe you guys can help?
MyDigitalDiscount.com Monday, November 10, 2014 07:51:41
Mukesh,

Any of the 50mm mSATA drives we offer should do the trick. There have been reports of BIOS recognition trouble in certain versions of the Yoga 2 Pro but it seems to be a fixable issue as seen in the link below.

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Idea-Windows-based-Tablets-and/1TB-msata-SSD-in-Yoga-2-Pro/td-p/1528320

Take note, our Tech Support team is always ready to help with any upgrade issues you may have. Hope that helps!
Mukesh Thursday, November 6, 2014 20:31:26
Hi there

What's compatible with yoga 2 pro. I am looking to upgrade to 512 or 1tb


Thanks
MyDigitalDiscount.com Wednesday, November 5, 2014 08:28:05
Irwin,

Is that a Lenovo IdeaPad U410, ThinkPad T410, or ThinkPad T410s?
Irwin Popkin Wednesday, November 5, 2014 07:39:11
need ssd drive for Lenovo 410
MyDigitalDiscount.com Thursday, October 30, 2014 07:49:34
Darryl,

No, mSATA drives are not compatible with the Dell Mini 9. You will need a PATA Mini PCIe SSD like the ones found in the link below.
