The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

A motherboard’s main job is to act as a conduit between the various hardware elements that make up a PC. It needs to be able to link the desired CPU(s), system memory, graphics card, hard drive(s), and add-in cards and enable them to work in harmony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great SSD Great product, made my OS start a lot faster than it used it when it was an HDD. Just make sure you have the screw that usually comes with the motherboard as it's crucial to the installation. Also allows me to put more standard drives in my machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Very good ssd its my second one for games :) instaling games and loads is very fast :) um recomend this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much power, in a dinky little package I never realized how small M.2 drives are! This little drive delivers on its promise of performance at a really reasonable price. I bought this as a gift for my partner and he loves it, really simple to install and immediately noticeable results after installing windows on to the drive. Although that wasn't without its difficulties. If you do decide to install this as your main boot drive, its a good idea to update your BIOS/UEFI to the latest version to ensure a smooth transition. Other then that - its brilliant :) Scan even delivered next day, thank you Scan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what you expect - a super fast SSD Not sure what I can say in this review other than it's a super fast NVME SSD - look up benchmarks if you want to know just how fast. It's probably overkill for most uses and most people won't see the difference between this and a SATA drive for half the price, but some people just want the fastest they can get! For reference, I put Skyrim on this drive and most loading screens take 2-4 seconds now. You can fast travel and load the area before the hints and loading screen graphics even appear.

My existing M.2 drive uses B & M keys and is 22 x 80mm. 1) Will this drive fit? 2) How can I transfer my operating system on to it? 3) Do you have a cheap M.2 to USB 3 adaptor for this purpose? See attached photo of existing drive
Asked by: Peter101
Hello, For compatibility you would need to check with your motherboard. This is an M key drive so would need an M or B&M key slot. You would need to look into software options to transfer the contents between drives however you would be best to reinstall the operating system from scratch. For connecting an M.2 drive via USB you could look at LN87894 or LN64667 (B/B&M key only however). Regards,
