M.2 slot but only sata speed. You can get nvme speed for much cheaper. Or crazy nvme speed for a little bit more.

I see 0 benefit of buying this drive. If you have a laptop using m.2 sata. Save your money and upgrade your laptop. If you have a second m.2 slot that only takes sata. Upgrade your other slot first. If you dont want to have wire and make your computer inside look nice and neat. (Your money... go nuts). If you do any rendering (especially high bitrate video), stay away from this drive.

It's 2TB m.2 SATA drive for around $200. That's hard to find with an NVMe drive, unless it's QLC. QLC had it's own disadvantages so some would prefer this.

I find this capacity and price highly attractive. Especially attractive as additional storage that I can attach to my motherboard.
