One of the greatest advances for PCs in recent years has been the introduction of solid-state drives (SSD). These storage drives hold information on flash memory that is managed by a processing chip called a controller. Advantages of SSDs over traditional spinning disks are numerous, from silent operation, lower power to significantly faster performance.

What makes a PC tick? Is it the processor, graphics card, RAM, or a plethora of other peripherals. It’s all those and more, but none would be much use without a means of connecting said components in an efficient manner. That’s where your humble motherboard comes in. Its job is to ensure that all devices can communicate correctly, and the beating heart of any motherboard is the chipset it’s based upon.

Reviews
Lycom DT-120 M.2 NGFF SSD Host Adapter Card, PCIe 3.0 x4, 2280/2260/2242mm, For PC/MAC/Linux is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful if used correctly This adapter is very cheap, but in order for it to be useful, you must be aware of what it can and cannot do. Firstly, you MUST use NVMe drives, the adapter DOES NOT work with SATA drives. Scan's website has separate categories for NVMe and SATA drives, so there should be no confusion, but a useful tip is that NVMe drives operate at very high speeds, typically more than 1000 MB per second, whereas SATA drives are limited by their controller to about 550/500 MB per second. You can plug the DT-120 adapter into any motherboard that supports PCIe. Note that the performance of the attached drive depends on which version of PCIe is in use - on a modern PCIe 3.0 board, I got very close to the advertised speeds of 2000/650 MB per second, whereas with a seven year old PCIe 2.0 board, the same adapter and drive delivered 830/560 MB - the huge drop-off in read speed is due to the fact that PCIe 2.0 runs at half the speed of PCIe 3.0 (about 1000 MB per second maximum). Fully updated Windows 7, Windows 10 and all major Linux distros support NVMe drives, so in all circumstances you can use your adapter and NVMe drive as a data drive, regardless of the behaviour of the motherboard BIOS. Older BIOSes do not recognise NVMe drives, in which case you CANNOT boot from any drive attached to the DT-120; with more recent motherboards and BIOSes, you should be able to boot from the drive attached to your DT-120.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, no complaints Installing an M.2 NVME drive into a server which has no M.2 slots, so purchased this to work as an adapter. Installation was easy and the drive fits well. Booted and recognised first time, no issues
Date published: 2017-02-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from installed easily and worked with no problem on a non M.2 equipped motherboard Installed into an old ASUS AM3+ motherboard, sure I only had x2 PCI-E transfer rates but still saw a speed improvement over the traditional SATAIII bus. note: did not show up as a device within the UEFI BIOS, windows 10 detected it and showed up in device manager with no extra drivers needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent PCIe to U2 card My motherboard does not have a u.2 port but using this card I was able to get close to the quoted speeds of the Samsung 960 Evo Very happy
Date published: 2016-12-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, cheaper and easier to obtain than the ASUS equivalent The ASUS equivalent card had rocketed in price and was difficult to obtain, so I took a chance on Lycom whom I hadn't used before. The Lycom card is well made and worked without a problem in a PCIe slot on an ASUS MAXIMUS VIII Ranger motherboard. On this basis I'd be happy to buy Lycom in the future.
Date published: 2016-10-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm. Great value. I'm using this adapter with Windows 7. The card does not require any drivers. Just plugged it in, and it worked straight away. Great value.
Date published: 2016-08-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used with SM951 SSD I had to upgrade my BIOS to get my motherboard to boot from the PCIe. In fact I had to create / modify a BIOS binary to get it to work, which was not very easy. However, it did work in the end and seems to be working very well with Windows 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used with a Samsung 951 PCIe ssd. Had no problems fitting it or getting it to work. It has to be used in the correct slot on Motherboard.

Questions & Answers

GIGABYTE Z97X-SLI MOBO

HI THERE, I WISH TO FIT DT- 120 M2/NGFF SSD ADAPTER WITH SAMSUNG XP941 M2 SSD. TO THE ABOVE GIGABYTE MOBO. WHICH OF THE TWO EXPRESS 16 OR EXPRESS 8 SLOTS DO I USE. THANKS, H CHAMBERS
Asked by: budy
It should not matter. The controller chips on current M2 PCIe drives work at x4, so either slot will be fast enough. Your m'board has an onboard M2 connector, so it is safe to assume that you will able to boot from your adapter+drive, but you might want to confirm that with Gigabyte support, they are generally quite responsive. Good luck !
