HomeAssistant Yellow NVME compatibility

I would like to start generating a list of NVME SSDs that work and don’t work with HA Yellow. I would be happy to update this post with everyone’s input

Samsung 970 EVO Plus (Gen3 PCIe)
WD Red SN700 (Gen3 PCIe)

WD Black SN770 (Gen4 PCIe)


What do you mean by good and bad?

works or doesn’t work

bump for input

Thanks for starting this list. A couple of people in the Discord channel mentioned they had issues with the Samsung 980, possibly due to the HMB feature. But the 970 seems like a good option.

Bad: Transcend 240GB M.2 SSD 820S (uses SATA, not NVMe)

Bad: WD Blue SN580 (I tried and tried and had no luck)
Good: KingSpec SSD Internal Solid State Drive 128GB M.2 NVMe 2280 PCIe Gen 3.0X4

Samsung 980 Pro 1TB does not work
Patriot P300 128Gb does work

Just tried Patriot P300 256GB, P300P256GM28- DOES NOT WORK.

Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB- Works

Samsung 850 Evo does not work - tested with two SSDs.

Samsung 970 EVO Plus MZ-V7S250BW (PCIe Gen 3.0) WORKS (as recommended by FAQ – Home Assistant Yellow)!

Verbatim Vi3000 256 GB (model/part number: 49373, PCIe Gen 3.0) does NOT work!
