You shouldn't buy an M.2 drive if you don't have a slot for it. Using an adapter removes all of the advantages of using a NVMe drive and standard SATA 2.5" drives are usually cheaper.
To expand, you have to check your laptop specs on the manu home page. M.2 is a FORMAT (size), some laptops only support SATA drives, some support SATA/PCI, and some have some weird restrictions on PCIe drives (aka NVMe). Also if you do replace this you will have to use backup software or the like to restore so that means a network drive or typically an external one. This is also the lesser (the 8200 is much better) of the two XPG generations. Its not that bad tho. It will be faster more likely than what was in there. Unless you really need it the 8100 is good.

If your laptop has a vacant M.2 2280 PCIe slot then yes.

I understand you were trying "to expand," but I am not following this statement "M.2 is a FORMAT (Size)," can you clarify that?

I've had 2 SSDs fail from Adata, support was horrible...

I try not to be brand loyal, but I steer clear of their stuff now. Price is solid though, just make sure you do your backups!

If your laptop or desktop does not have an M2 slot. They sell an adapter to convert M2 to SSD fairly cheaply.

M2 doesn't specify the interface, which might be sata of nvme. If you have a sata only M2, then this won't work. Another concern, is these can run quite warm, and there is unlikely to be good cooling inside a laptop.

Check if your laptop supports m.2 pcie or m.2 sata or both.

NVMe. PCIe might be technically correct, it just adds further confusion.

Also I would not recommend this line. It is left out of most current promotional material. It does not come up in the supported list for their SSD utility. You have to dig for the product info on their web site and the page appear out of date and not in sync with their newer lines. All tell tale sign if an orphaned product. I noticed only because I have been trying to get support info from them without much success. If I had these info before I bought a 1TB version of this line that intermittently stop working, I would definite not have pulled the trigger. Hopefully this PSA will save some folks some headache.

You are so unlucky. I only had Seagate HDD 2GB and 2GB WD HDD failed on me, never had any other issue with any other HDDs or SSDs
