I am looking to upgrade my Macbook Pro Mid 2012. I have a few questions and hopefully some can help me with them.

- Can I buy this SSD for the Mac and install directly? Or would I need an adapter or case?
- I think the Mac needs SATA but if I were to buy an SSD that supports PCIe, would I need an adapter?
- Are NVMe SSD's appropriate for gaming because of the high read/write speeds? Should I be getting a regular SSD for regular browsing, document storage and video watching?

Thanks guys
Mid-2012 MBP only supports SATA-3, buy a regular 2.5 SATA-3 SSD drive, if you want PCie 2.0 x 2 lanes NVme comparable performance you'll have to setup your Mid 2012 MBP to APFS RAID0, i do recommend a reliable SSD (samsung evo, crucial, WD) drives, RAID0 in macOS are very reliable, i never had system crash or just have backup just in case, my Mid 2012 Macbook Pro macOS catalina regular SSD, RAID0 SSD and Parallels benchmark below.

Question. Why is it that SATA 3 SSD's are similarly priced to NVMe SSD's. Is it due that there is a market still for older The SATA 3 interface?
Because I use SSDs for more than just internal to my desktop.

It is how I preserve my photos while traveling.

There is no benefit via a USB 3.0 enclosure to pay more for NVME architecture as well as an enclosure. I get the same effect for about 40% less total cost.

Saw the images in the comment. How do you have 3 internal storages on Mac ? Is it possible to do the same for Early 2015 Mac ?? Any Idea ?

Also, any idea on how these compare with SAMSUNG EVO/EVO Plus ??

No, there are no SSD's out yet that you can use internally on a PS5 yet.

Is it normal for these WD drives to have a slight curve in the board? I ended up picking up an SN750 that had a pretty beat up box and the first thing I noticed was it was bowed out ever so slightly in the middle.

You can use something like THIS [amazon.com] or THIS. [amazon.com] It will be powered by your PCIe slot. 2.5-3.5 adapters are meant to be for SATA drives.. this is not a SATA drive..

Have both SN550 and SN750

SN550 boots faster and loads games faster

SN750 writes twice as fast and maintains speed better over time, gets a bit too hot at times

If you're going to be video editing for example get the SN750, normal usage go with SN550 it's like a SATA 3 SSD on steroids.
"go with SN550 it's like a SATA 3 SSD on steroids." That's a great explantation. Thanks!
