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:

Martin & Brendan,

We're sorry but we couldn't find any information that would lead us to believe that either device has an mSATA slot.

If you are still looking to boost performance, you can replace your existing 2.5" SATA HDD with any 50mm mSATA SSD by paring it with the adapter in the link below.

Sony Vaio S Series Notebook

VPCSA35GG

Would like to know if this has a spare mSATA slot, thanks!
Martin Friday, April 11, 2014 18:44:23
Hi,

what about the HP Pavilion 15-n203tu?

Thanks
MyDigitalDiscount.com Tuesday, April 8, 2014 07:34:50
David F,

Yes, any of the 50mm mSATA SSDs we offer on MyDigitalDiscount.com will work just fine in your new PC.
David F Monday, April 7, 2014 19:47:42
Just ordered a Dell XPS 8700, it states it can support one mstata drive, will one of your work in it?
MyDigitalDiscount.com Monday, April 7, 2014 08:02:09
Rich & Ted -

Previous E series from Dell did not support mSATA, however we have received reports lately that some of the newer ones do work.

We can't say for sure but if you'd like to try one out, we can offer either a replacement or a full refund for the price of the drive if you have any trouble.

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

Rad - Based on the information we've found on the G500, it is does not look to be mSATA compatible.
Rad Sunday, April 6, 2014 21:34:58
Hello and thanks!

What about lenovo g500? i7 3612QM? Does it support mSata?
Ted Silver Friday, April 4, 2014 16:00:26
Is the Dell Latitude E6440 compatible? It has an open full size WWAN slot that appears to be mpcie, but I can't tell if it is full or partial.
Thanks,
Rich Thursday, April 3, 2014 08:05:48
Dell Latitude E5520 (Intel HM65 Express chipset)?
MyDigitalDiscount.com Tuesday, April 1, 2014 07:54:44
Ruth,

While we've found that the V570 does in fact have a slot that an mSATA drive will fit in, we've also found a number of users having issues when trying to upgrade using an mSATA drive. Regretfully, we don't have first-hand experience with this particular model to tell you why that may be but, if you'd like to try an mSATA SSD, our Tech Support team is always happy to help trouble shoot any issues you may have.
Ruth Friedman Monday, March 31, 2014 18:41:41
Is the Lenovo V570 compatible?
There is a video on Youtube of some Russian fellow who did it but the laptop is not on any of the lists
Any help would be appreciated
MyDigitalDiscount.com Monday, March 24, 2014 07:56:41
Nikita Svintsov -

Your notebook is not directly mSATA compatible because its mini PCIe slot only works as a TV tuner and will not work with a storage device.

You could however use an mSATA drive along with the 2.5" adapter in the link below to replace your current 2.5" drive if you're simply looking to boost overall performance.

Hello!Is HP pavilion dv6 2130 er mSATA SSD compatible?
MyDigitalDiscount.com Monday, March 17, 2014 08:10:11
Plutonium,

Yes, it does. With the S400 you can use an mSATA SSD as either a boot drive or a cache drive in tandem with your 2.5" HDD.
Plutonium Wednesday, March 12, 2014 16:54:13
Guys, thank you for this list! I'm about to buy Lenovo IdeaPad S400, and I see that it's mSATA-compatible. Does this mean that I can buy e.g. a 128G mSATA, insert it in S400 and boot the system from it?
MyDigitalDiscount.com Monday, March 10, 2014 09:12:43
pc_ - Sorry, the S550CB is not mSATA compatible. If you're looking to upgrade, you will need a 2.5" SATA SSD like the BP4 Slim 7 Series found in the link below.

Junster - Thank you for the confirmation! We'll add that to our list.

My MSI GE70 2OE-017US Gaming Laptop has 2 msata drive ports in addition to the regular Hard drive. 17" I-7 12g ram
pc_ Saturday, March 8, 2014 07:45:14
Can you check this please?
ASUS VivoBook S550CB
MyDigitalDiscount.com Monday, March 3, 2014 08:24:34
Zac C - We can't find anything that says your VAIO S12 is mSATA compatible. Sorry about that.

We did however find a good video showing S Series owners how to add a secondary HDD/SSD if you're looking for SSD speed or additional storage.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LmQJI1Vl4g

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

JOHNNY B - No, we're sorry. The mSATA drive that comes with your Zenbook is a proprietary design that we do not have an upgrade for at this time.
JOHNNY B Sunday, March 2, 2014 01:54:40
Will this fit on the Asus Zenbook prime touch UX31A model?
Zac C Saturday, March 1, 2014 13:39:01
Model: VPCS12C7E/B.AE1
Make & Series : Sony VAIO S12 13.3 inch Laptop

Could I install an mSATA on this?
MyDigitalDiscount.com Monday, February 24, 2014 08:42:45
K,

Sorry, we can't find any mention of mSATA compatibility. It looks like your best bet for an upgrade is replacing the stock HDD with a 2.5" SATA SSD.
K Thursday, February 20, 2014 23:40:33
Dell Inspiron 1501 mSATA SSD Compatible? If so what would be the best match product?
MyDigitalDiscount.com Wednesday, February 19, 2014 08:24:20
Paul B,

For whatever reason, some PC manufacturers still deny that SSD upgrades are possible, even when they are.

There's a chance the port could be defective but it's possible that you're dealing with a WWAN slot that looks similar but has a different pin configuration. It could also be that it's an mSATA slot that has a capacity cap, meaning it will not accept a drive over a certain GB size, and while that's not common, we have have seen it.

We suggest making sure your computer BIOS has the latest firmware and try again from there. If you still experience issues, feel free to contact our Tech Support team at info@mydigitaldiscount.com for further diagnosis.
Paul B Tuesday, February 18, 2014 00:13:23
I have two Acer Aspire V5 laptops. One is a V5-573PG-9610 and the other is a V5-552PG-X809. I know that the former has an mSATA socket inside, but I haven't been able to get the BIOS to recognize an SSD. Acer says they don't support installing SSDs in these systems. Could it actually be an mSATA socket that doesn't work?

Thank you.

WSZsr - HP does offer Sleekbooks with an mSATA drive for an additional fee at the time of purchase but, if you have already ordered one with without, there is no guarantee that an empty mSATA port has been included.

We suggest opening the back of your notebook to confirm whether or not you have an mSATA port before placing an order. If you are unsure of what to look for, please refer to the HP manual in the link below or email our Tech Support team by email, info@mydigitaldiscount.com, for further assistance.

Raman - Unfortunately, the G73JH does not appear to be mSATA compatible. Sorry about that.
Raman Monday, February 17, 2014 06:50:32
Does Asus G73JH have a msata port? The mobo has 6 SATA ports but I only have two hard disks in it. Can this disk be used in any of the other 4 ports?
WSZsr Saturday, February 15, 2014 16:13:28
HP Envy 14 Sleekbook K027
MyDigitalDiscount.com Monday, February 10, 2014 09:19:29
Steven Hantl - Sorry, we can't find any info that says the Intel DP35DP desktop board is mSATA compatible.

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

willy - We're not having much luck finding information on either IdeaPad.

Our tech support team would need to take a look at inside both notebooks to advise you on the best upgrade for each PC.

If you can provide us with a photo of the motherboard from either notebook, please send it to info@mydigitaldiscount.com.
