KanguruClone M.2 NVMe Duplicators support PCIe M.2 SSDs, commonly known as NVMe SSDs.
SATA M.2 SSDs are NOT supported inherently. SATA M.2 uses an entirely different communication protocol than PCIe M.2. KCLONE-11NVMe can support SATA with use of adapters sold separately.
Both SATA M.2 and PCIe M.2 SSDs use a similar physical connector. It is easy to confuse the two, so you should always check your SSDs’ technical specifications to verify that they are either PCIe M.2 or NVMe before using them with the duplicator.
Alternatively, you can visually identify whether an M.2 SSD is SATA or PCIe by inspecting the physical connector. M.2 SSDs are “keyed” to prevent the connector from being inserted into an incompatible socket.
- Supported PCIe M.2 / NVMe SSDs are M-keyed
- Unsupported M.2 SSATA SSDs are B+M-keyed
If you need to duplicate M.2 SATA SSDs, please contact Kanguru sales and inquire about a KanguruClone SATA duplicator with M.2 SATA adapters.
