Ordered from Amazon,
cheers OP and Dappa0345.
You want to watch out with these M.2 SSDs.

Find out if your motherboard has the 2208 size slot. Luckily this is both B and M key by the looks of it so don't have to consider that.

Worth getting a nvme gen 3 4x PCIE if your motherboard supports that because this one is not much improvement on a bog standard SSD.

Actually, that's because it is a bog standard SATA3 SSD!

Bonus is there should be no need to worry about heat though. Size is generally not a problem on desktop mobos if they support M.2 but for laptops both size and heat are a major concern although at least all (most?) M.2 NVMe drives know to throttle if they get too hot.

No they are two different things - one is a PCIE SSD converting to a SATA interface, the other is a SATA SSD using the SATA interface.

The M2 uses a PCIE bus interface be it B or M or hybrid. It's a bit pointless that it is using the SATA bus here - it's converting from its native PCIE bus to SATA.

It's not actually from Amazon, it's from a market seller in Hong Kong.

OP one looks to be OOS.

hello this might help folks see what M.2 stick is compatible with their system

M.2, also known as NGFF (Next Generation Form Factor) is the successor of … M.2, also known as NGFF (Next Generation Form Factor) is the successor of the mSATA standard for expansion cards. M.2 is very flexible and is widely used as an option for additional storage on the today laptop’s motherboards. It can vary in its size – at this point, commercially available are 30mm, 42mm, 60mm, 80mm, and 110mm lengths, which are commonly expressed like ‘2230’ (22m wide, 30mm long), ‘2242’ (22m wide, 42mm long), etc.There are also three different types of “keys”, which purpose is to prevent the use of inappropriate M.2s – B, M and B&M.

Your best to check the link above, scroll down the page for a huge list of compatible M.2 systems I hope this helps

My point still stands.The M.2 interface exposes all of these:
"Buses exposed through the M.2 connector are PCI Express 3.0, Serial ATA (SATA) 3.0 and USB 3.0, which is backward compatible with USB 2.0."
The whole reason drives like this are cheap is because they are able to use the existing SATA controllers. There is no conversion as such - just routing of the SATA signals to the M.2 connector so as long as an existing SATA SSD design can fit into (for example) 2280 it is an easy thing for a manufacturer to do - of course all the limits of SATA apply in terms of max 550-600MB/s etc. Native NVMe requires different controllers.
