m.2 socket can be SATA or NVME.

The specs on WD page say m.2 SATA so this is limited to SATA III max bandwidth.

NVME can be up to several GB/s

Great find, this was the same price as their BF deal. Has a 5 year warranty and has decent speeds

A note for the the m.2 is SATA speeds and is not NVME

yes, tax is really big. they should assess tax on the amt of plastic used instead of price

Got one of these on BF, worth noting that they ship via UPS ground from California so you'll be waiting 1 week + for delivery if on the east coast

I think they were trying to be funny. The way I read that was; your computer will still crash it will just crash faster with a ssd. I could be wrong though...

I think you are right on that, but NVMe will crash much faster than SATA SSD.

It is TLC, this one falls on par with 860 Evo or MX500.
