Which SSD should I buy, PCIe or mSATA, on iMac EMC 2638 (Late 2013)?

Hi!

I have iMac Intel 21.5" EMC 2638 (A1418; Late 2013). I want to add 2nd drive and didn't know which SSD should I buy.

I have already a 120 GB Samsung mSATA SSD (MZ-M5E120BW). Some time ago I've planned to use with this Apple blade SSD port Adapter/Converter for 2.5" SATA SSD installed into the case of a iMac (21.5 "or 27").

But a person had convinced me that my iMac has PCIe slot and I can't put mSATA in it. She said that I can buy M.2 SSD and put it in with this Adapter for mounting M.2 SSD PCIe in the Macbook, iMac, Mac mini 2013 - 2015 systems replacing Apples custom SSD.

I know that I can also buy original/OWC SDD, but it's not for me.

So my question is which SSD should I use?

Sorry the mSATA drive uses a different connection than the adapter you listed offers, it won't work at all.

Mind telling why the SSD that's built for a Mac by OWC, that works, is not for you? Instead you want to put in a module built for a PC that doesn't work reliably with a Mac. Now you're talking to someone that fits the adage "If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with BS".

if the 21.5-Inch "Late 2012" or "Early 2013" iMac models were configured with an SSD or a "Fusion Drive" at the time of purchase, the SSD module is connected via a dedicated PCIe connector and another SSD can be installed in its place. Unfortunately, if the system only was configured with a hard drive, the needed connector is not present on the motherboard and there is not a way to add a PCIe-based "blade" SSD afterwards.

Or...

Go with the Apple SSD like this one: Apple Original blade SSD - 128GB iMac 21.5"/27" Which is what I would do. But! you need to have the model that offers the blade SSD connection! Otherwise, you only have a single drive system.

While you got the dialog correct you forgot the physical interface is unique to Apple. M.2 drives won't work.
