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:

Comments on mSATA SSD Compatibility List


MyDigitalDiscount.com Wednesday, March 25, 2015 09:01:19
Gabriele Poole,

Thank you for your comment and installing tips, we will add the Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E130 to the mSATA compatible list.
Gabriele Poole Wednesday, March 25, 2015 06:45:52
The Lenovo E130 is not on your list. However I added a 256gb msata to its pci express slot and it works fine as primary hdd after I cloned the system partition and C partion on it with Easus. I retained the old drive for extra storage. On some notebooks the slot is filled with a WWAN card in which case you have to remove it and tuck away the little cables to installa the msata.

john c.,

Tech support:

If you plan on RAIDing the drives, I wouldn't anticipate any compatibility issues, only write speed limitations to the old drive if you use them in a RAID1. But honestly I would change it over to AHCI, purchase a 128GB or 256GB MyDigitalSSD BP4 and just keep the 80GB as either fast storage or just keep it aside for a redundant backup if you ever needed it in a crisis. RAIDs used to be good for both redundancy and speed increases, but with the native speeds of SSDs, there is no need to RAID unless you're adamant about data securing your data in more than 1 spot.

MyDigitalSSD BP4 128GB or 256GB SSDs are available via mydigitaldiscount.com or amazon.com
john c. Friday, March 20, 2015 13:30:19
thanks for your response: I checked the iX104C5 BIOS and there are 3 settings: AHCI mode, IDE mode, and RAID. So it looks like I have some flexibility.
If I mix a newer SSD mSATA drive with my older 80GB SSD drive might I have compatibility problems?
thanks

Response 2/2 - Picking the right mSATA SSD for you

From our research the Xplore iX104C5 supports the additional mSATA SSD in RAID 0 or RAID 1. This is something to consider in picking the right one for your needs. Our technical support had this to say on SSD RAID setups:

"I have been trying to find out if you absolutely have to run the drive on the Xplore iX104C5 in RAID or if you can do standard AHCI and have a secondary drive for space only but I'm not having much luck. You would need to enter your BIOS and see if the SATA operation mode can be changed from RAID. If you can, you have more options."

From our research the Xplore iX104C5 supports the additional mSATA SSD in RAID 0 or RAID 1. This is something to consider in picking the right one for your needs. Our technical support had this to say on SSD RAID setups:

"If you use a larger card for the Xplore iX104C5 it will just partition it to the 80GB size in most cases, so I would suggest getting a 128GB, however if you were looking to get more space, you should clone the 80GB over to a 256GB and replace it entirely. Maybe even replace it with 2 x 256GB units.

Response 1/2 - Comparing and shopping for mSATA SSDs

We could not find benchamarks for the Intel SSDMAEMC080G2 80GB SSD to compare it to other SSDs. If you would like to run the test yourself you can with the freeware program CrystalDiskMark. This will give you results in Sequential (seq) read/write and 4K read/write which manufactures tend to list on product pages.

mSATA MyDigitalSSD SSDs on MyDigitalDiscount display the CrystalDiskMark results for each drive.
john c. Thursday, March 19, 2015 17:17:10
I have a ruggidized tablet from 2011 (iX104C5, Xplore technilogies) It has one Intel SSDMAEMC080G2 80GB SSD card and space for a second. Is there a recent equivalent card with faster read/write rates and greater capacity or must I use another card of the same model? thanks
MyDigitalDiscount.com Thursday, March 19, 2015 09:59:44
Jason Tiller,

Thank you for your feedback Jason. We will consider your suggestion.

Unfortunately we are seeing more recent laptops use the M.2 form factor over the mSATA. The models on the list are looking at least a year or two old now.

Note: mSATA compatibility shouldn't hold you back from a laptop purchase, MyDigitalDiscount.com do supply mSATA USB 3.0 enclosures

Jason Tiller Wednesday, March 18, 2015 16:42:47
Thank you for maintaining this list. Could you please include the model year of the compatible laptops? Are any of these laptops contemporary? I'm looking at new laptops, but none of them I've seen so far include mSATA ports, as far as I can tell.

Thanks again!

EJK,

From our research it doesn't look like the Dell Inspiron 15 3000 Series I3543-000BLK is compatible with mSATA SSDs

Saeed,

Unfortuntaly we were not able to find mSATA SSD compatibility with the Asus N61-JQ
Saeed Saturday, March 14, 2015 00:28:11
Hi,
Is Asus N61-jq compatible with M-SATA ?
tq

durrri,

We were not able to get 100% assurance that the Sony VAIO E SVE151C11M is mSATA compatible. We recommend that you check with Sony officially to make sure.
durrri Tuesday, March 10, 2015 18:44:41
hey. are all Sony Vaio E Series 'created equal' in this regard? i've got a sve151c11m, finally got that thing open (man, those things are built tight), but for the love of it i cant find anything resembling an mSATA inside. thnx for any help.

Ethan,

From our research it did not look like the Acer V3-572PG-530Y is compatible with mSATA SSDs.
Ethan Tuesday, March 3, 2015 20:16:45
Hey,
Does the Acer V3-572PG-530Y have a viable mSATA port? If it does have an mSATA slot, will it be bootable?
Thanks

Pappa,

Yes the ASUS N551JK is compatible with an mSATA mini SSD. We will add it to the list.

MyDigitalDiscount.com currently stocks mini mSATA MyDigitalSSD SSDs in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB:

Greetings. I have ASUS n551jk. I can see the slot for the msata mini on the board but will it boot? Thanks!

Nick,

Toshiba will always tell you no because they don't want you to open the laptop. I have not had the pleasure of doing the upgrade on the X70 yet so I can not say 100% on anything, but if it made it to our list it's because someone has successfully installed it. That being said, buy with confidence that if it doesn't work, we'll find another solution for you.

The MyDigitalSSD 240GB (256GB) mSATA SSD is "at time of typing" enjoying a 34% instant saving:

Nick Wednesday, February 18, 2015 14:35:47
Guys... I see that you have my new laptop on the list:

Toshiba X70-B-102

However... when I asked the people at toshiba they told me there was no mSATA on this laptop. Perhaps they meant there is no slot to connect an mSATA drive... ? How can I discover if I really do have an mSATA connection so I can buy myself a nice healthy 256GB card

cheers.

Nick

Michael - Yes, the Acer TravelMate P633-M and P633-V are mSATA compatible, we will add them to the list.

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

daniele - Is there a model in the V3/R3/E5 range you were looking at? We could not find any mSATA compatibility with the Acer ES1512P2C7
daniele Sunday, February 15, 2015 05:54:15
