What you are looking for is what many call the 'half size' mSata cards with two screw holes. Now, it is difficult, if not impossible to find anything but the half-size mSata cards with the two screw mount holes at the rear of the card. These cards will all be the ones that are around 50.8 to 50.95 mm in length. Here is a good, easy description: https://searchstorage.techtarget.com/de ... tate-drive

It's actually full-size. The half-size is even smaller, around 27mm or so.
m.2 and msata sizes

In general, there should only be two common mSATA sizes you would find available for purchase.
The Replay uses the full-size one, around 51mm as parrottm mentioned.
It's dangerous to go alone! Take this. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BuFVQ7HCQAAbgpz.jpg
