Get the USB M.2 reader/adapter.
I got one to do that and ended up doing another thing entirely.
There are 2 types of USB m.2 adapters: SATA or NVMe (PCIe). It needs to match the type of SSD to work.
6 years is pretty generous. I would say longer than that.

1. We are almost at a node-shrink limit that can be accomplished using silicon.

2. Demand Dictates Supply pt 1. While capacity quadrupling every 5 years or so for the same price is the past trend, that's also been before the market was saturated. It was the last year or two that we've seen SSDs in almost every OEM or system builder PC and laptop. Fewer upgrades = less demand.

3. Demand Dictates Supply pt 2. People are becoming even more reliant on "cloud" storage, which also gets cheaper over time. This would make a large SSD more niche than ever.

4. Speaking of Niche. most people have never even held a 16TB HDD, even those who build systems regularly. The demand will be low for 16TB SSDs at almost any price.

Unless something really shakes up the market, I see SSD price decreases to start slowing down over the next few years. Average Joes just don't need that much storage yet, and likely won't then either. Seeing trends just from personal experience, over 5 years, people's need for additional storage has maybe a little more than doubled.

Assuming you only have one M.2 slot, what's the best/fastest way to clone an M.2 drive?

Thanks. I didn't know that was a thing.

Whoa 4TB would be a beast. I cant wait for large (16TB) super cheap ($300) SSD. Would make my server noise much less.

You'll have to wait. At the current rate, it'll be at least 6 years, maybe 10 before SSDs that large are in the $300 range.

If you're not doing many writes, look into second hand U.2 drives as companies upgrade their servers.

So 4tb is now in the comparable range of doubling 2tb cost. Before it was some silly shit like $689.. just to have 4tb.. avg 2tb ssd is in the $250 range.. excluding sales which may bring it down around $200.. hoping for $189ish 2tb drives that don't suck on speed. btw, as capacities increase don't get lulled into thinking ssd serves the purpose of long term archival storage-- IT DOES NOT. if left off and unpowered an SSD drive could become theoretically unreadable within 1 year.

That's true. Backups should always be done to spinning rust, unfortunately. SSDs do make a good intermediary storage though, especially if some additional processing to data has to be done before long-term storage.

Workflow example:
Edit Video File > Move Video File to SSD Storage > Use Handbrake on Dedicated Machine to Compress Video and Save New File to HDD+Backup.

Handbrake can run as slow as it needs to, and can be run via script to just automatically process new video files. The raw files can exist on the SSD storage as long as you want them to, for future editing or just ease of distribution, but the back-up and long term storage would be on the HDDs.

5 years warranty - by the time its warranty runs out the should be in $200 range.

Solid long-term option if you need the space.

Also... Backup your data people, warranty isn't back up 😉

What's the difference between m.2 and u.2 drives
