Cheapest 1TB NVME on the market right now. Performance is not bad. But for some reason, it is a B key format.

Sure but buy wisely!
I use the O-r-i-c-o M.2 NVMe SSD Enclosure, USB 3.2 g2 Model #M2PG-C3.*
The current model uses the Realtek RTL9210 chipset.
$25 @Amazon [amazon.com]

Shouldn't need any 'software' to use it on macOS or Win10.

*wtf, SD has banned the brand-name as a blocked URL?? 0RIC0

Does this mean it will work with the Macbook M2 adapters for a 2015 Macbook Pro?

You'll have to look at the specs or just Google. I did a quick search, and it does not look like the MBP has an m.2. slot.

WD Black is much faster, 'tho endurance slightly lower than Inland.

I am upgrading from spinning HDD, so this is a huge upgrade for an affordable price. Not everybody needs a Ferrari.

This. You get what you pay for - there are no real slick deals anymore.

The Inland has very respectable specs for the price. I personally feel it is a very good deal. I replaced my spinning HDD, now bootup and access to files are now super fast. I very much doubt most people would be able to notice the milli seconds difference other SSDs might provide.

It's not the speed but the durability that would worry me most.

Very high TBW rating and 3 year warranty. As with many electronics, they usually fail within the first month or should last a long time. And Microcenter has a great return policy. Why the concern about durability?
