    I fitted an ADATA SU800 M.2 2280 128 GB drive and it’s not recognized – doesn’t appear at all. In the process however I messed up and incorrectly detached the ribbon cable. Getting the clip back on I may have broken something. )-: Is it possible that this drive simply isn’t recognized? I assume I’ve just hosed my m.2 board effectively turning it into a eMMC only laptop but wonder if there’s a chance this is a compatability issue – anyone else have problems with drives being recognized in the bios? Drive seems OK – tested in my NUC and the bios picks it up.

    Hi Rrobot,

    Did you manage to get it work? I also planning to get this Adata SU800M as it’s among the cheapest I can get. Anyone else using the same model do provide feedback.

    I ordered this one for $48, free shipping :

    https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Free-Shipping-KingSpec-22-42mm-NGFF-SSD-64GB-128GB-SATA-III-6Gb-s-Internal-Solid-State/2348331_32738061252.html?spm=2114.12010612.0.0.5bdadf47Tr3Kkd

    There is no dram cache for the controller so it might be a little slower than other M.2 SSD’s. It’s been shipping to the USA for 2 weeks but it should arrive in the mail tomorrow. I believe that any SATA3 NGFF M.2 SSD (not NVMe) should work in that slot. I will post my results after I get it installed.

    Ordered the same then looked into the brand and cancelled my order. Warranty is non-existent, if your drive is DOA or dies anytime after then you are SOL.

    The box that I received stated 3 year warrantee. It also states that in the specs on the web page. Of course, anytime you buy cheap Chinese stuff you are taking a risk. I saved $25 on the 128 GB and it’s working great.

    Hello I have ordered the same. What speeds are you getting? Did it affect the battery life after using? Did you close the system ? Thanks!

    Hi SAVVAS,

    I cloned my SSD with Macrium Reflect free. I don’t expect it to impact battery life but time will tell. It’s not the fastest drive but fast enough IMHO.

    These are not my numbers, but I got results very similar to these:

    Although it is not easy enough to attach a headline, it is really easy to remove it, just to remove 10 screws, no bottom plate and no claws on the main body.

    I have a screw in Digi Gear, I want to relax. Although notebook PCs (Vaio 3 models, Lenovo, ASUS) at home are sometimes disassembled, we could not remove the bottom board as simple as this.

    I have read in a Gearbest review that there are problems with some SSD. My ezbook 3 pro has been shipped today so waiting for it I tried to understand what module is working and what is not, may I suggest the Op to create a list of 100% working models, based on techtablets.com user feedbacks? Bye.

    The review linked in your post suggests RAM can be expanded to 8GB.

    Given all disassembly vids I’ve watched so far I haven’t encountered a slot with which that can be achieved.

    Any further info regarding that?

    I’m waiting for my EZbook Pro 3 rev 4 to arrive from GearBest within the next week or so and trying to get myself prepared with all the necessary extras.

    Cheers,

    Guys, I am about to order the m2 but I don’t know what to do. Is this trick stable? I think with heat and vibration this solution  will damage the m2 (so my data). We need a more reliable way to fix it to the internal…
