    Should be m8.

    Each one should be SATA or NVMe keyed. Im not 100% sure though. I think I installed one of these into a 17 r2 last month though, at my shop.

    I haven’t had any compatibility issues with any drive in the AW’s EXCEPT my older AW13r2. It was finiky but it had a port implemented m.2 drive system. The 2.5 adapter was fine.

    You could have asked in that thread where you needed ADATA SSD.
    Take a look at Mx300. I suppose WD Blue are very slower than mainstream brands. Surely, its better than Green. I remember seeing a ADATA SATA 3 M.2 SSD priced at 70$ for 500GB.
