    Hello guys!

    wanted to check is there anyone had experience with Bplus dual adapter?

    i want to buy dual m.2 adapter but I'm going to use one SM951 ssd, ( the other slot i'll keep for future upgrades. ) Is it possible to boot with this adapter?

    also is there any speed difference compared with Lycom DT-120?

    thanks

    Probably you wont' have any speed gain as you use a single x4 pcie slot for 2 m.2 SSDs. To have a faster solution, you would need at least a pcie x8 adapter with two m.2 slots, but the ultimate solution is to have a quad x16 pcie - m.2 adapter, like this one below:
    SQUID PCIe Carrier Board for M.2 SSD modules

    The only problem with this is its price. It is around £370 after import tax and VAT.

    Hopefully we will see more companies start selling x16 quad m.2 - pcie adapters (most probably Chinese cheap ones first)
