Why are so many people insanely cheap? You will NEVER see SSD prices this low again.
Nonsense. Tech prices always come down.

I am a bit tech inadequate. How do we know if this plugs and play in the laptop? Is it based on the PCIe vs Sata SSD drives? Thanks

You will probably need to stick with a SATA SSD since this is m.2 slot and I don't think M.2 slots were around back in 2010. A m.2 to SATA adapter/enclosure seems to be a thing so that might be something you can try with this drive.

Wouldn't derive any benefit, since self-contained SATA drives are significantly less expensive at the moment (plus I believe those adapters require the M.2 drive to use SATA, not NVME). Here's a cheap one [amazon.com]. You'll also need a 3.5 to 2.5 adapter if you don't currently have an SSD in your iMac.

​Here's a 2 pack [amazon.com] for $4.69

You didn't say exactly which iMac you have, and you may already know about it, but iFixit has some great articles on Mac repair [ifixit.com] for all different models. Pretty sure this version of the iMac includes a temperature sensor taped to the drive, which will need to be retained (doesn't matter where you put it; SSDs don't get hot) to prevent the fans from running at full speed.

If you don't want to open up your Mac right away, you might also consider an external USB to SATA [amazon.com] adapter. It will only run at USB 2.0 speeds (max 40MB/sec), but I'm using something like that in a 2013 iMac (which is significantly more difficult to work on than a 2010) and for everyday work it's quite usable. MacOS fully supports running off an external USB drive.

So if i buy this SN750 for my MBP 2015 and use that adapter needed to plug in M2 to NVME so i wont see much speed benefit vs SSd or WD blue nvme? thanks,,

Is there any point In getting this over a sata for storing games, docs and videos ? I ordered the 500gb Sata version of this since my Alienware is already utilizing the m2 slot.

MBP 2015 is a completely different animal. You would possibly see some improvement vs. the Apple SSD (which is also NVME). Remember, M.2 is the form factor, NVME is the protocol. A SATA III SSD can also run in an M2. interface. The adapter is needed because Apple uses its own connector for NVME SSDs.

The type of work you do would determine whether it's worthwhile (unless you're upgrading because you need the additional space, in which case, sure, go ahead). There are also some issues regarding power consumption when in sleep mode with third party SSDs vs. the stock SSD. You should do your own research before you go through with the purchase.

Remember to buy a heat sink, if going after this deal.

Not really. I have both this SN750 1TB and a Samsung EVO 850 2.5in SATA. The WD is faster in benchmarks, but in games and general usage, it's pretty much the same. I was hoping loading times would be better, but since the EVO was so fast anyways, the advantage was like 1 or 2 seconds, if any.

I also ended up buying a heatsink for the WD because it would go to 60 to 70C during gaming and I wasn't comfortable with that. The EVO stayed less than 40C doing anything.
