Is it just me, or does hotul sound extremely like sam_of_london?

I took a look on a hunch, and that account is banned. And hotul coincidentally registered only 4 days ago, or one week after sam_of_london's last post.

I don't get it, so instead of SATA being the bottleneck it's a USB connection?

It can be either . Weakest link determines strength of a chain . Newer usb c connection like usb 4 / Thunderbolt and Nvme drives are faster . Sata is a dead standard . Only buy Sata SSD to use in old laptop . This adapter is for faster Nvme SSD and not SATA .

I think you kinda missed his point there. He's saying USB is the bottle neck on the Nvme drive, i.e.- there's a reason to buy Nvme over Sata but not here.

Don't confuse SATA with nvme , both are not compatible. Sata interface is much slower than nvme. The link you provided is for SATA.

USB Type-C is just a connector type and can be used with USB 2.0 even as it is with some phones.
You need to check that your USB ports offer 10Gbs to get the most out of this.
SATA isn't dead, it's used a lot for hard drives and larger SSDs as M.2 drives are too small to offer much capacity.

Guess you have not heard of Thunderbolt / Usb 4 . You want to make things faster not slower. Sata is dead. No new development in SATA . No new laptops with Sata . Sata was developed for spinning platters . And the beauty of this is that your new nvme drive is not wasted . One day you can use as portable SSD , next day use as Windows disk in your new laptop .

TB3 is USB Type-C only and is always 40Gbs so that's really simple to understand unlike the USB naming mess which confuses some.
My laptop has TB3 not that I have any need for a TB3 device.

Plenty of new laptops use both NVMe and SATA as support is built into chipsets.
A common method is a small NVMe boot drive and large SATA HDD for data.
But SATA M.2 drives are becoming rarer for sure.

I've got optical, NVMe and SATA 2.5" in my Dell laptop. It was built July 2019.

I have replaced the 2.5" 1TB spinner with SATA SSD. 128GB NVMe with 1TB NVMe.

Not so much in the ultrabook size but if you look at 15 and 17 inch larger models they often have a 2.5" drive bay.
Some of these are aimed at gaming where bulk storage is needed and not everybody wants to pay the premium for a 2TB or larger secondary SSD when a HDD will suffice.

Sata was made for spinning discs . As they disappear SATA will become dinasour as well. NvMe 4.0 is already out based on PCI Express 4.0 . There were floppy disk , magnetic tape , all vanished . No new standards coming in SATA

So clearly it isn't dead is it! Capacity is still won by spinning discs. Throw out all the links you like, sata will still be here this year and the next. There are other things besides notebooks...let's take NAS for instance...and haven't the new 15tb drives just come out? Oh and let's not forget cctv...

They do, but they are bulkier and heavier than M2 SATA enclosures, which are also far cheaper. And the extra speed of NVME isn't really worth all that when SATA is fast enough.

Spot on, NVME also tends to get bloody hot as well. Both of mine are cooled by pretty chunky heatsinks but still manage to hit 50/70.c during high transfer loads.

That's odd. I've had a 240gb Nvme drive in my laptop for over a year now and never noticed any heat issues. It's almost full. Admittedly I'm not monitoring it specifically but I don't remember seeing any heatsinks when I installed it.

Am quite impressed with it over sata. The sata drive I had just seemed to get clogged up more easily.
