I am new to SSD. Have a dell laptop from 2014 that's relatively slow. Would this be compatible?

Not pcie 4.0. That needs to be common language now. Night and day speed and bandwidth difference. This is a great pcie 3 nvme though.

The only target market I see for this is an upgrade from a non-gaming laptop or desktop which came with a 128/256GB m.2 ssd.

It requires an m.2 nvme slot (or a pcie adapter which makes the total price not a good value) which means a relatively new laptop or desktop which likely came with a nvme card but a lower capacity. If they came with nvme 500gb or higher, then this is not going to be a noticeable upgrade (and may even be worse).

Don't see too many likely scenarios where a SATA ssd would be replaced by this where the performance difference would be most significant.

Puzzled at the target market for this.
Bigger point is sata max 6gb/s. Not even close to nvme speeds. Get the adapter and enjoy the new age of computing.

I have been out of the game for many years - last time I built a PC, the CPU was a Pentium 4 Northwood 2.4c. Holla! So sorry for the stupid question, but I'm buying a NUC that has an "M2" slot. Is this compatible with that?
Yes, I believe that M2 slot on the NUC means that it's for M.2 storage such as this product.

Most likely not but if it doesn't have a m2 MVNe slot you can still buy a regular 2.5 ssd. That will also make your laptop fly..

I believe so but I also believe it's capped so you won't get full speed. I have a regular m2 ssd in mine but when I was research others have mentioned it works with MVNe.

This is an nvme m.2 drive. There have been a few 1tb nvme drives in the $85-100 range the last few months, but I don't recall any in the $65-75 range.
This is the drive XPG Gammix S5 512GB PCIe 3D NAND PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 NVMe 1.3 R/W up to 2100/1500MB/s SSD (AGAMMIXS5-512GT-C)I bought on Nov 17th for $52.69

Right that's 512gb. They were talking about 1tb drives in that price range.

Yep but 5 months later this drive is more expensive, it's not a slickdeal!

If your cloning software also dates back to 2014, then it probably won't know how to deal with an M.2 device. As user sr71 mentioned, you can download WD's version of Acronis to do cloning. That being said, there are a number of people who suggest not cloning and simply doing a fresh install of the OS when going from an HD to an SSD.

Back in the prehistoric days of 2014 (just kidding), there were some Z97 mobos that came equipped with M.2 slots. However, those slots were PCI 3.0 x 2, not the current PCI 3.0 x 4. That means that this SSD would not function at full speed (only at a max of 10Gbs) but it would still be faster than a SATA SSD or HD. Anyway, the first thing you should do is take the side panel off of your PC and see if you even have an M.2 slot on your mobo. If there is one, then you should go to the HP site and check the specs of your model to make sure the slot is listed as PCIE or NVME and not listed as SATA (some M.2 slots only support SATA).
Thank you!

I say the very small segment of users that actually do take advantage of pcie 4.0 would know of the select drives that are actually specced that way. Otherwise, for 99.99% of the drives out there now they are only 3.0 and the price is easily how to tell it's not 4.0. Simple common sense to me.

Good drive. You can also get it on WD's site, including at 1TB, with various promotions and CB available. However it might not be ideal for a laptop on battery, it has high idle power usage.
Looking to extend as much battery life, which PCIe M.2 in your opinion would be the most efficient on battery life. I was debating between the Samsung 970 or the WD SN750, but I came across this one and it's way cheaper. TIA
