Yes, I tried taking some of my own medicine and ran the belarc advisor.
I think I fell asleep listening to all those specs.
I just talked with a local computer store, not the geek squad.
And he said my computer model would not have an m2 slot.
He suggested I go with something like a western digital blue 500 gig for about 70 cannuck bucks plus tax.
So, I’ll chew on that for a while.

Have you tried running Belarc?
This will help you to see if your box has an M.2 slot or if you’ll need to go for a SATA SSD.
If you’ve got an m.2 slot it’ll be better to get an M.2 SSD.
Hi John h II and list,
I have a 4-5 year old hp small form desktop with 6th gen I5 processor.
Haven’t spent any money on pcs in a couple years.
This device has a 500 gig sata drive.
I’m thinking about installing a s s d drive for the o s and programs.
You said newer ssd and such drives connect to the mainboard through
Pci-e 3 and 4 slots.
I tried getting the specs for my hp from the net. I got lots of info about cpu, ram slots, usb ports, video etc., but I could not fine the specs for unused pci slots.
There is a serial adapter plugged into one slot, there are 2 really short slots, and one long slot, long like a stick of ram.
Maybe these are pci—3 slots?
Just poking around in the dark.
