they are exactly the same performance
m.2 drives are smaller

This looks like the standard SATA III version in M.2 format. No NVMe speed benefit here as it is the same speed as a standard SATA SSD, but at higher cost (though this is a cheaper M.2 format in this case).

Yes, but might be best for most laptops (assuming it has a 2280 M.2 slot) as many of the NVMe throttle like crazy.
Mind you, max write power is 4W vs 5.1W for the Samsung MVMe 960 Pro so it might still get hot.

I voted hot, but actually I don't even think it's a good buy. The speed is the same as a standard SATA3 SSD. I mean I guess it's fine if you don't have any more SATA ports free, but who doesn't on any modern motherboard?

Laptop users? If only all M.2 laptops had 2280 slots of course but M.2 is a mess with different sizes, SATA vs NVMe and of course the thermal throttling.

The price might be good but how is this a deal if the item is out of stock, even temporarily?! COLD!

Hardly cheap for a TLC SATA drive! Bought the 1TB version from Amazon for ~£175 last year so the RRP for this is silly.
Cheaper at Scan for me as I have free postage and in stock.
