Hi, I have a Switch Alpha 12 and its SSD seems to have stopped working. I opened it up, and now I'm looking for a SSD replacement. The Kingston a400 240gb seems to fit the requirements (SATA m.2) but I found a post here that was dicussing which types of SSD the Switch supports, and apparently there's something called type B keying which is the only one the Switch supports. Here's the post https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/461548/how-to-open-chase-and-upgrade-ssd-in-switch-alpha-12
and the relevant comment
"It turns out that the m.2 SSD installed in my SA12 is a Kingston SATA model with the B & M keying, making it compatible with either B or M type m.2 slots (as are MOST Sata-crippled m.2 SSDs). When i did the same upgrade on my Dell E7470 ultrabook, which also came with a Sata-based m.2 SSD, i had no problem installing my 960 EVO's bigger 1TB brother. Unfortunately, our Switch Alpha 12's m.2 SSD slot is keyed for type B - meaning that the Switch Alpha 12 does NOT support the latest and greatest NVMe-based, blazingly fast, PCIe x4 SSDs. The Switch Alpha 12 only supports SATA-based m.2 SSDs - or at least m.2 SSDs that are keyed for Type B (or B+M) - buy NOT type M-only slots."
I can't seem to find out if the Kingston A400 is keyed for type B. Does anyone know something about this?
