    Question about m2 ssds and compatibility with RVE

    Hello. My brother plans to get a lenovo notebook and we were thinking about using the m2 drive that comes with it, in our server instead.
    Will this work? Is any m2 ssd drive compatible or do I have to get any particular model?

    Edit: here is the model compared to samsung evo 850 (which is the one I currently have) and it shows that this m2 is actually slower, so maybe its not worthy?
    The m2 model # is SSDSCKKF256H6L:*http://www.harddrivebenchmark.net/hd...SSDSCKKF256H6L *

    Thanks.

    The RVE supports PCIE M.2 drives only, not SATA M.2 drives

    hi O,
    The R5E spec only Supports PCIE SSDs only
    If You want to use M.2 SATA interface, You must adopt M.2 NGFF SSD to 2.5 SATA Adapter
