fast enough for my use case upgrading an old macbook air, obviously wouldn't put in a new build.
It's basically SanDisk ultra under the hood, as WD owns SanDisk
Good price but it was £86 earlier in the year

Careful of the M.2 key if you're using the Sintech adapter. Also some WD drives have by far the worst power draw in comparison to other replacement M.2s in relation to Macs.
£100.77 new ..... available for less from Amazon Warehouse
In the real world for the average consumer you really won't notice a difference over NVMe drives from my own experience. I've got one of these for Steam and its been great. Just be wary if your motherboard has a heatsink for M.2 slots, as certain boards (MSI) tend to make them hotter with it on which will throttle the drive.

Don't bother, it's only as fast as an SSD and costs more, you're better off getting this, cheaper and much faster: Crucial CT1000P1SSD8: amazon.co.uk/dp/…MXT

Not if your motherboard doesn’t support NVMe M.2, you’re not. Horses for courses ...

Nice but better take Plextor on Pci slot with 3200/2000Mb speeds.

There's two types of m.2. The one in your link is different to this

Look at the notches
