NVME Compatibility

Some customers have reported compatibility issues with certain brands/models of NVME drives with Raspberry Pi 5.

No 'official' compatibility list is maintained by 52Pi or Raspberry Pi (yet), so we suggest following the same compatibility list on the Pimoroni NVME Base page as a starting point until something official is shared.
