Synopsis: Unsure if your tablet or notebook is M.2 NGFF compatible? Click here for our growing list of devices with M.2 NGFF expansion slots. (Updated 6/19/16)

M.2 solid state drives, formerly M.2 NGFF (Next Generation Form Factor), are a great option for upgrading today’s thin/ultra portable notebooks, Ultrabooks, Chromebooks, Mini PCs, and more.

Like mSATA drives* that preceded them, M.2 SSDs offer high-speed performance with low power consumption and can be used as either a cache drive, in tandem with a HDD, or a boot/system drive when running an operating system, programs, and applications.

M.2 SSDs are currently available in both SATA and PCI-e interfaces** that offer 30mm (2230), 42mm (2242), 60mm (2260), 80mm (2280), and 110mm (2210) length form factors to accommodate assorted PCB and motherboard designs.

For maximum connectivity to M.2 ports, M.2 SSDs are available with different keys which offer varying bandwidths. These keys are displayed as different notches on the end of the drive. A drive with a single notch has an 'M' key which provides up to 4x lanes of bandwidth. A drive with two notches at the end have both an ‘M’ key and a 'B' key. This type of key maximizes compatibility in both slots and operates with 2x lanes of bandwidth.

Is my device M.2 compatible?

To help in finding M.2 compatibility, we’ve curated a working list of confirmed M.2 devices below based off manufacturer specifications*** and customer feedback. Each section is broken down by product type for easy perusal. If you know of one we've missed, please let us know in the comments.

"You don’t have xxx device on your list. Does that mean xxx device is not compatible with xxx SSDs?"

Our list is ongoing and always being worked on, and this means that your device might be compatible, but we haven’t got to listing it yet. Leave a comment about your compatibility success and we will add it to our update.

Don’t see your device listed below?
  • Let us find out: Leave a comment asking if your make/model is M.2 compatible.
    Submitted comments are held for approval. Please allow up to 24hrs or longer for comment approval and reply
  • Try consulting our mSATA Compatibility List to see if your device shows up there.

Note: If your device uses "FastBoot" you may have to uncheck this option in the BIOS for it to recognize your SSD (Thank you Anton Hinxman for your comment)

* M.2 SSDs cannot be used in mSATA ports and vice versa.
** M.2 SATA & PCIe ports are not interchangeable unless noted by device manufacturer
*** Device configurations might not support M.2 SSDs. Please contact the device manufacturer for confirmation before making a purchase.

Comments on M.2 NGFF SSD Compatibility List

Paride Fioretti Wednesday, September 14, 2016 10:06:47 AM
I have a HP probook 450 G2 compatible with SSD M.2 PCIE (not SATA) with a 32GB SSD module installed.
I would like to upgrade to a 64 or 128 PCIE 2242 module, but i wonder because I'm not absolutely able to find any in the internet.

Is there a reason? Nobody use this 2242 PCIE format? Only my PC ? :D


Thanks for the reply

Ankur B.,

Yes, the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 has a PCIe mini slot for a LAN card. The M.2 slot is used for a wireless WAN card or an M.2 SSD.

Manufacturers may not recommend changing the SSD from cache to bootable because it means changing the original settings. If you are comfortable doing that, then you may have success with a bootable SSD.

For caching you shouldn't have any issues with the capacity of the SSD.

At mydigitaldiscount.com we stock the MyDigitalSSD Super Cache 2, complete with a license key for the caching software FNet HybriDisk. You can shop those here: http://tinyurl.com/hn76f25

Yah it's to bad that the only thing holding back the computer industry is the lack of standards from one company to another. The competition for market shares is killing us.
Ankur B. Monday, September 5, 2016 01:46:51 PM
I have a Lenovo E431 Thinkpad Edge laptop. It has a PCI-e slot for M2 SSD of 42mm. I want to know can I use your SSD for storage upgradation or only for SSD caching as the laptop manual says SSD installed in this PCI-e slot it can only be used for SSD caching. please clarify. And if only for SSD caching what capacity SSD do you recommend for optimal performance. I already have a 1TB HDD installed with Intel Core i7 processor and 8gb RAM.

Timofey,

We could not find M.2 SSD compatibility with the HP Pavilion 15-au models you mentioned. We might have better luck looking at the HP Pavilion 15-ab series. The HP Pavillion 15-ab027tu is compatible with M.2 SSDs do not know the size or if it is SATA/PCIe. Compatibility does vary by model through the HP Pavillion 15-ab series
Timofey Thursday, August 18, 2016 04:48:03 AM
Hi. Do anyone have information about HP Pavilion 15-au and 15ab series? Does it have m.2 slot? For ex. models HP PAVILION 15-au024ur, HP PAVILION 15-au027ur, HP PAVILION 15-au028ur.
Thanks.

Vincent Schulz,

Thank you for your comment. We are looking at reforming our M.2 list to include NVMe. We will however, add the Acer E5-774G-37ZB to our current list.
Vincent Schulz Thursday, July 21, 2016 06:19:45 AM
You can add the Acer E-5-774G-37ZB Laptop. (Intel skylake

It has an M.2 Slot M-Key supporting NVMe +DDR4!!!
Succesfully tested with Samsung SSD SM951-NVMe 256GB.
(Even though the SM951-NVMe has no Option Boot ROM)

However the M.2 Slot it is not specified in the specs.
http://geizhals.eu/acer-aspire-e5-774g-37zb-nx-gecev-002-a1462989.html

This notebook is not found an Acer's website however.
Fascinating and that for about 439€ only.
