M.2 is a form factor (M.2 2280), NVME is the drive technology.

You can get an enclosure for the NVME drive and attach it to a regular Sata connection on the M/B or a USB.

You can also use a PCI-E expansion card if you wanted to have 2 NVME drives in your PC.

NVME prices are dropping pretty fast... hot
I have one of these, but this is an amazing price, heat.
Ordered another 512GB... Cracking performance for an NVMe and a great alternative to SATA SSD's.
Can this be used in an Dell Vostro 470 i5, PCIe slot straight away?
Nice find @Brutes

Just use Macriun Reflect to create a backup image of the drive to an external usb hard drive. Then swap em and put your backup on the new drive.

Yeah it should be fine, it's only normally a problem if you swap the motherboard for something different or try clone a drive into a completly new system due to the drivers. Just swapping a drive in a machine for a bigger one or faster is fine.

Also if you have never cloned before just triple check before you press clone that you have the correct drive (cloning from and too). You wouldn't want to clone the empty drive over your data

Aye that side of things is fine; I just dumped a 1TB SSD in the spare SATA bay, but the 120GB nVME is a bit small, so I was curious to see what methods people employed.

Suppose I could do an external enclosure too and repurpose the 128GB later.

Your enclosure needs to support nvme drives as this won't fit into a m2 slot

Would it be ok in a b450 tomahawk
This work with Gigabyte B450M DS3H anyone know
Can this be used in a 2015 MacBook Air?
Heat given! This was on my wish list for Black Friday.

I am going with a b450 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard - would it be worth getting the 256GB for windows and programs and then using this for games...?
Solado09/11/2019 13:26

Yeah it will work.


Thanks the bulid of pc I brought has the motherboard and has a Kingston 240gb sata 3 SSD already in system is there normally space for another drive? sorry I'm a noob to pc's but want at least another 512gb for games

Yes. I have this exact one on the same board. Just look at M2 cooling options if you're only using the stock CPU cooler.

No worries, the Kingston SSD connects differently to this drive. This drive will connect where the red arrow points on your M/B (excuse my paint skills). I'd check on YT how to install M.2 drives, it's simple but always useful to know the technique to avoid any problems.

M.2 to Sata adapters can't handle NVME drives, NVME is not Sata compatible. Native pcie m.2 slot or m.2 to PCI express or USB 3+ is must

Think that one is only for m. 2 Sata drives so not suitable for this one.

Anyone know what the warranty is on this, so tempted at this price
Hi there
Is that fit for MacBook Pro A1502??
Need help
Thanks 🙏

I would avoid this SSD because sabrent has pulled a bait and switch and installed slower component's
Anybody know why amazon is selling this without VAT included? Really interested but seems like the seller is out of UK and amazon not charging vat so i can see why its comparatively cheap...
I got a Silicon Power NVMe X4 drive back on Amazon prime day, I get 3000MB/s read and 2800MB/s write, during long copies it averages 750MB/s I might be able to increase transfer if I add a cooler to it.

Absolutely no evidence of this except a review on Amazon.
So I would just ignore unless you have evidence of this happening.

I bought the SSD and have a different layout, i will benchmark it next week

reddit.com/r/N…ge/

Multiple others have had the same layout although the performence drop is still unknown if there is any, although there is now half the 1/2 DRAM compared to before

You will need an adaptor - there are 218 pages about this on Macrumors forum - works fine on 2015 models. Hibernation issues on late 2013 and 2014 models (A1502 covers all 3 years - so check "about this Mac" to get your year...)
OOS till 12 14 November!
