paul456, allow me to answer your questions below:
- Tested mSATA SSDs:
- Operating system installation should work either way; however, we do not get to test all drives available in the market. If you encounter an issue try using a different drive.
- HDMI port is compliant with v1.4a specification. The information you asked for is not meant to be disclosed but should be within the values the specification indicates. We encourage a direct connection to the monitor if possible.
- Power draw information for wireless adapters is no meant to be disclosed. The tested models are also listed in the article above.
Thank you for your reply. As 256GB is reckoned to be a minimum usable size for common working systems, that leaves a choice of just 1 tested drive in your list ! - the Intel 525 - which has an Active Idle spec of 250mA. Reason I had provisionally selected a SSD with low Idle power, was the previous NUC was widely reported to overheat in the mPCIe area (I see reports of it still in this forum as recently as October) which is why I was going to buy the Sandisk X110 as it has only the 80mA Active Idle, one of the lowest I have seen in latest generation 20nm SSDs.
I see in not just this forum, users are fitting Crucial M4, M500, Plextor, non of which are in your list. Is it a reasonable expectation that any modern mSATA SSD launched this year complaint with the mSATA specification, should work in the D54250WYK ?
It is indeed a reasonable expectation but some devices work differently between brands and models.
We also have this other article with different drives; some of them appear to be the ones you mentioned:
