I'm planning to buy a 500 GB SSD (upgrade from 256 GB because I'm running out of space), preferably under or close to $200. Any recommendations? I'm thinking about this one.
Also, do M.2 SSDs provide a noticeable benefit over SATA SSDs? It's been a while, sorry
M.2 as a form factor doesn't as it only adds a lack of cooling for the drive. It's NVMe that makes a drive faster, and this standard (replacing AHCI) is in a lot of M.2 SSDs. It makes sense for about .01% of people to buy an NVMe SSD.
