mSATA, microSATA, CT128M4SSD3 nightmare

for more than 3 weeks I am looking for an adapter to connect to CT128M4SSD3 (for an internal lenovo bay)

 

all specs I found say, that CT128M4SSD3 is mSata

 

but no adapter fits

 

 

https://twitter.com/pkerchner/status/335692656619438080/photo/1 (no, it does not fit)

 

mSata, microSata, miniSata, µSata (which   i diot  invented these ambigous names ??????? )

 

 

 

desperate

 

please help

You need a slimline-sata/micro-sata/slim-sata to msata adaptor. The naming isn't standardized, I agree. It suspect something like this might work: http://www.microsatacables.com/msata-to-micro-sata-adapter-msata-micro-sata/#.UZkbqkp418E However, from the photograph, you're intending to use the mSATA drive in an external enclosure. Why not simply use an external mSATA enclosure? While slightly more expensive, it'd be smaller and lighter, and would definitely work.

well, my plan and wish was to adapt mSATA to USB (because I have no backup host with SATA port)

 

and finally I see:

 

there are no mSATA-USB Adapters

 

all mSATA-USB Adapters on the market are microSATA-USB Adapters in reality

I also have a Crucial M4 mSATA SSD, and found a msata to usb 3.0 case, the speed is excellent, can reach 254MB/s tested by AS SSD Benchmark. The case link is here: http://www.uittek.com/msata-ssd-to-usb-30-external-drive-case-enclosure-for-50x30mm-msata-ssd_p501.h... for your reference
