IS this connector for an M.2 SSD? Lenovo Ideapad Undocumented JSSD1
Lenovo Ideapad 110 171IKB 80VK - i5 7200U - HD620 GFX
MB: Nano 7C1 - Comes with 1TB Spinner
The attached image is the inside of the laptop (obviously)
I’ve searched everywhere for information about this model supporting
a M.2 SSD. Clearly the connector is present, but it doesn’t seem to be anywhere
in the manual or elsewhere.
- What kind of SSD would it support? NVME?
- Many M.2 SSD’s are 80mm long, and evidently this model has a reused motherboard from another laptop, therefore not designed for it. The space as shown in the image is 70mm, so it would require moving the CD/DVD Rom connector daughterboard ‘over’. For me this is fine as I am going to switch out the dvd drive for a 3rd SSD, including changing the original main drive as well. Further, I would have to fabricate a mounting point for the single screw at the bottom of ‘said M.2 SSD, not a problem for me, I have several 3d printers ..or some hot glue :)
If anyone can shed some light on what kind of SSD is compatible that would be Ultra Excellent, as I dont have stores anywhere here, and I’d like to order the right one first.
PS, KEEP UP the good work iFIXit! We all have your back!
