Thinkpad 240: and i also bought a mini nvme 2230 to install on this adapter.
Let me share my upgrade for T430..
I bought this adapter expresscard for T430 with Nvme mini adapter.
and i also bought a mini nvme 2230 to install on this adapter.
I had a very good result.. more storage space on my Thinkpad.
In total, I now have:
1xSSD 240 Kingston in main tray;
1xSSD 240 Thinklife on ultrabay;
1xNvme 256GB on ExpressCard;
1xmSata 256GB, in MSata WWan slot.
Link Ali :
Is the ExpressCard bootable? I have mine currently allocated to a SD card reader since the internal one is so flaky.
which modern applications? For your every day stuff, zoom, Skype, ms office suite, it works fine.
Adobe Photoshop and Premier Pro can work if you have a quad core cpu, max out the ram and use an external gpu.
heck I put a 1RB HDD in my T61 years ago running Win XP sp3, also got the 2TB SSD in my W500 Win7 64bit. plus ext backup
W500 had exp card already so I put 3x USB3 adapter card in it and use high cap thumb drives for file transfers tween TPs etc
