In what situations do you expect users to notice the difference?

I don't understand the downvotes. In which scenarios will users notice a difference between the two protocols? It's an honest question.

Nope, it hit $130 a couple days ago.

And Best Buy has a Samsung Evo 860 1TB for $130 in their BF ad. It is a 2.5" SATA drive, but Samsungs have historically been more expensive so expect WD drives (2.5 and mSATA) to drop even more very soon.

The reason I ask everyone this in every M.2 SSD thread is because people imply that SATA vs PCIE is a noticeable difference, when for a large majority of tasks, it really isn't. The bottleneck isn't in the maximum throughput, which as we all know is 5x higher with PCIE, the bottleneck is in the random access speeds, which don't differ at all between the two. Wait for Intel's XPoint storage for a 10x increase in that.

Most users will not notice a difference between SATA and PCIE SSDs.

haven't been much to get excited over in past years, but I'd still wait at this point to see if BF yields any real SSD deals.
