Why do u want to clone? - if you have multiple partition and keep the company OOTB recovery partition you need to clone the old drive.
What is the challenge? - as of today there is no USB enclosure available which supports NVMe - M Key drive. USB enclosure available in Market only support B key or B&M key.

One Option to clone instead of fresh install

1. I bought Mailiya M.2 PCIe to PCIe 3.0 x4 Adapter (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1) from Amazon
2. Download Macrium Reflect to the laptop which i want to upgrade the M.2 SSD from 256GB to 500GB
3. conn external HD to the laptop and using Macrium Reflect clone the existing 256 GB M.2 SSD to the external HD
4. using M.2 PCIe to PCIe 3.0 x4 I installed new M.2 NVMe (500GB EVO) in my desktop
5. connect previously cloned HD to desktop and reverse clone to new 500 GB EVO M.2
6. while cloning, i resized my partitions
7. Opened my laptop, replaced the 256 m.2 with my cloned and resized m.2 500GB EVO
8. started the laptop, no issues and all worked fine including the recovery partitions.

in Short you cant clone VNMe drives since no enclosure available in the market

Tax aside, I wouldn't say $27.05 is just a "few more dollars"...since by that token adding that on top of the MyDigitalSSD price then starts veering into 960 Evo territory.

This ADATA can best the MyDigital in sequential read speeds, but lacks in the write department, albeit not as much as the spec sheet makes it. This hits in the 800-850MB/s [amazon.com] write range in CrystalDiskMark, which is as ADATA states. MyDigitalSSD is closer to 1000-1100MB/s [thessdreview.com].

ADATA: 1700-1800 MB/s R / 800-850 MB/s W
MyDigitalSSD: 1600 MB/s R / 1000-1100 MB/s W

Both are good deals and drives. I would give the edge to this ADATA just because the difference in read and writes between the drives would be unnoticeable in everyday use, but your wallet would notice the difference in savings.

I bought this drive the last time it was on sale. Other drives may benchmark faster but I doubt you will notice it. I am seriously impressed with this drive's performance and value.

Good deal for those outside of CA (tax). Otherwise https://slickdeals.net/f/11335263-mydigitalssd-sbx-single-sided-80mm-2280-m-2-pci-express-3-0-x2-nvme-ssd-256gb-83-512-gb-155-more-free-s-h gets better reviews for a few more dollars and a much more sane return policy if things go south.

Money aside, which is the better drive, the adata or the mydigital?

Good price for storage in general. But the upgrade to Samsung Evo is worth it if you want more speed.

This is a good nvme drive, I picked one up last time it went on sale. Has performed well so far. Unless you're a power user with specific requirements, this drive is *plenty* fast...

How many channels does this drive use? Also, what's a good adapter for my motherboard?

My HP will boot from these drives with the correct adapter.

I wouldn't consider a $75 difference as almost the same price. Yes Samsung is the best but my bet is you dont notice any difference between the speed of the 2 in daily use. Most say you dont notice the difference between a standard SSD.

Also what I understand. I've got an mx300 and it sounds like the only reason I want one is to say I've got it
