this is a new SKU, in the past these only went up to 1TB. identical drives from corsair and others using essentially the same hardware run about $270.

you can also buy the same exact thing from amazon if you want for $10 more.

Doesn't the amex promo only work on items shipped and sold by Amazon? This one is sold by Microcenter via Amazon.

If anyone has experience putting this in an early-2015 MBP, I'd love to hear how well it performs. I understand I need the adapter to convert from nvme to Mac's proprietary port. I have a 1TB OEM but I run two operating systems (windows for cad and Mac for Adobe's photo editing), and I'm always running out of space. I'd love to have 1TB designated for each OS.

People on ehre told me inland premiums were good, I should get one, etc... and now people say it's "a waste of a m2 slot" and mock me for it and then someone in another thread here claims that they're binned worse performers. Also, my package says 1900 write speed, yet then they started putting 2800 on the packages soon after, so no clue what is up with that.

Should be fine unless they stealth-gimped it like some product lines. The previous lower capacity versions used the Phison E12 reference with Toshiba NAND. Any of those based on that design are top tier bargains that can go toe to toe with most of the high end SSDs.

you would need adapter and create a bootable macos usb disk. i would go with mojave worked fine for me. install it the nvme in your mac and close it up. then insert the created usb bootable disk and when you turn on the mac press and hold the OPTION button on the keyboard. select the usb MacOs option. then when your on the next screen choose disk utility and format the new nvme to macos journal. then back out and choose install macOs on your new internal nvme. after that's done your good to go.

Who knows, these adaptors often need specific drivers. Doubtful the PS4 would have it natively

There's really no reason to do that. You'd be better off just getting a good 2.5" SSD like the SanDisk ultra that was recently $179

This is an NVMe m2. That adapter is SATA m2. SATA is much slower.

Just get a 2.5 SATA like someone else said above.

I'm learning as I go with upgrading my acer nitro 5. This seems to me to be a very good deal. When looking at the pic on micro center site, I can clearly see the Phison e12. How can I spot Toshiba NAND?

Tho the photos all show single-sided drives, the comments on Amazon say the 1TB (and thus 2TB) are 2-sided. Are there any (good) 1-sided 2TB M.2 NVME drives?

My local MC (MI) just having this back in stock. So I went and checked it physically.

Instead of old 1900MB/s write label, the 2TB drive is marked as 2900MB/s now. And it is the new version discussed here [hardforum.com], with the smaller footprint E12s, one piece of RAM chip and four NAND chips on each side. So eight NAND chips in total, double-sided.

The two copies of 1TB version are the old design, large size E12-27 controller, one RAM chip and two NAND per side, double sided. But the package is marked as 2900MB/s too.
