This Addonics 2.5" M2/mSATA SSD drive is a flexible flash drive kit designed to turn a regular M2 (NGFF) SSD or mSATA SSD into a 2.5" SSD. There is no longer a need to have two different flash drive kits for the M2 or mSATA media. The drive frame and the connector mimic the exact size and connector location of a 2.5" SATA hard drive. So once the M2 (NGFF) or mSATA SSD is mounted inside this 2.5" Flash drive kit, it can be used just like a standard 9 mm 2.5" SATA hard drive to directly replace the 2.5" hard drive in Notebook or any computing equipment. This 2.5" Flash drive kit is a simple economical solution to replace a mechanical hard drive with a low power, shock resistant and high performance Solid State Drive.
