that's not bad honestly. i had to buy nvme's recently and i just settled for an sk hynix gold drive, pretty similar to the 970 evo plus as i'm aware. didn't need to juice out the last bit of performance when there's plenty of competitive products in the mid range.

Quote from DarnCrazy :
You can likely get a PCIe to M.2 adapter instead so you'll be able to get more speed from it. You'll want either a heatsink and/or active cooling if possible since these drives can get pretty hot and throttle. I think ASUS has quad port 8x/16x PCIe 3.0/4.0 adapter for around $60-90. However there plenty of cheaper adapters (not sure about quality) for under $30. Might be worth looking into that instead of a SATA adapter to get better speed out of it, since some older computers have a free PCIe 8x slot.

If you can only use SATA, there might be some similar options, but you'll lose any benefits from the additional speed. It's not a bad idea, but you might as well wait for until you actually need one before spending money on this drive. There are other cheaper M.2 drives that might be better served by the purpose you're looking into such as the WD Black or Samsung 970 Evo Plus, and a myriad of other NVME drives on the market.

PCIe adapter is too expensive for me. I see cheaper SATA adapters. I don't mind if it's SATA speed. I just don't want to invest in 2.5" drives anymore. Do you mean these NVMe drives aren't ready for use out of the box? Do i need to buy cooling fans and heatsinks?

For most people, a 2TB 970 Evo Plus for half the price is better. Most people do real world stuff, not run benchmarks all day.
You got a link to a 2 Tb 970 evo plus for ~175.00?

NVMe drives should work with an adapter out of the box but, you might want to add additional cooling (heatsink and/or fan) if the drive lives in an enclosure or has poor airflow around it. NVMe drives get far hotter than any SATA SSD I've ever owned.

I stand corrected, this will not work with with a SATA adapter.

Thanks for pointed this out @Zankapfel!

how much better are these then lets say this from microcenter for 189 currently?

Inland Platinum 2TB SSD 3D QLC NAND M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe 3.0 x4 M.2 Internal Solid State Drive

Im sure the samsung is faster but for 100 bucks more is it worth it?
It depends if the insane speed and six times the endurance is worth it to you. The Inland Platinum is rated at 200 TBW with a 3 year warranty and the Samsung 980 Pro is rated at 1200 TBW with a 5 year warranty. Unless you're in a data center environment most people won't come close to taxing the 980 Pro. For me the extra 2 year warranty is worth the $100.

I've never heard of an adapter to run an NVMe drive on a SATA connector. You may be thinking of adapters for SATA m2 drives. There are different interfaces available for the m2 form factor. NVMe drives will not work with those adapters. Get a PCIe adapter (make sure your mainboard supports booting from NVMe if you want that) or get a USB3 adapter (can be faster than SATA but slower than PCIe).

I'm assuming by adapter they mean enclosers.

for those of u thinking they "need" this for whatever school work, browsing, gaming etc needs you have, just .. don't waste your money. rather spend it on higher capacity gen 3 drives or pocket the savings for something else
