Top customer reviews
A much more common and cost effective SSD form factor is called mSATA. mSATA is smaller than 1.8" SATA, and fully compatible with regards to functionality of a 1.8" SSD, as far as I know. mSATA drives seem to be generally newer, cheaper, faster, and overall better than 1.8" SATA SSD's. It seems that the 1.8" form factor is going to the way side, in favor of mSATA, but I could be wrong.
In comes this Aleratec adapter. Simply choose from a larger selection of higher performing mSATA drives. Install it in this Aleratec adapter, and you have yourself a replacement for a 1.8" SATA SSD.
The adapter is very high quality, not flimsy, came with screws, and was easy to install the msata drive into it. It slid in perfectly to my Lenovo X301's 1.8" slot. It was recognized and worked flawlessly with no fuss at all. Measured performance has been extremely good.
I am using this with a Crucial M500 240GB mSATA Internal Solid State Drive CT240M500SSD3 that I purchased for $139.99...
I used this to install a 250gb Samsung EVO 840 into a Motion Computing J3400 tablet computer.
Installation was a snap. Insert the SSD, use the included screws to secure it to the adapter, then install the adapter as you would a regular drive.
The adapter feels solid, as if someone actually put some thought and effort into designing and producing it, a rare trait for most adapters of this type.
My tablet is now mighty mighty fast and twice the storage, which were my main goals. It probably uses a little less power, produces less heat, and is more protected from falls, although those weren't my reasons for upgrading so I'm not paying particular attention to them.
It's nice to know I can upgrade these funky systems without spending a king's ransom on funky 1.8" drives.
However, do note that if you intend to use this with the VPCZ13, you will need to remove the black plastic support in order to make the adapter fit. Don't worry about this, though; it slides right off, no need to unscrew or break anything.
I installed this in my laptop along with the Samsung 850 EVO - 500GB - mSATA Internal SSD (MZ-M5E500BW) and it works perfectly.
