I meant to comment on this individually to clarify the attempted misinformation spread by the person you quoted. There is nothing called a "chip drive"

There are many different types of SSD's, and I will be leaving some out, but the most common types are:

External: These can vary in size and shape, but they all typically have a USB A or USB C interface. As the name implies, these are for use outside of a computer.

SATA: The same as OP, These have a 2.5" drive form factor and SATA data and power interfaces. These are often the slowest of SSD drives mainly because of the bandwidth limitations of SATA.

NVME: These socket directly into a motherboard or PCIe riser card. They have an m.2 form factor with an M key. These are typically the fastest of consumer SSDs, as they use 4 PCIe lanes for their bandwidth, though they do use a dedicated m.2 slot. See the next one for compatibility issues. See key image

SATA m.2: These are some of the more confusing consumer SSDs. They have basically the same form factor and interface of NVME drives, but they use SATA instead of PCIe. They often will fit and work in the same m.2 socket, but for either SATA m.2 or NVME, you'll want to check your system's documentation to see what is compatible. SATA m.2 has B+M key. See key image

PCIe: These have mostly fallen out of fashion, but still worth noting. They are simply SSDs built into a PCIe expansion card. The number of lanes they use will vary.

U.2: These aren't really consumer grade, but worth mentioning. These use a cable so they can mount in drive bays similar to SATA drives, but the interface is much faster, and uses PCIe lanes similar to m.2. They are usually 2.5" or 3.5" drives. You usually only find headers for these on server/workstation boards or some HEDT boards.

m.2 Key Image:
Please don't do that, or at least don't teach other people to do it.
Nobody else calls NVME drives "chip" drives, and with good reason. It's a misnomer at best. All SSDs are "chip" drives, as they have controller chips and NAND chips, sometimes even DRAM chips. The difference between a SATA drive and an NVME drive has nothing to do with "chips", it has to do with the physical interface and to a lesser extent the form factor.
As someone who's worked professionally in a support position in the past, I agree with everything you're saying here. Repped.

Has the popular DRAM-less SMI SM2258XT controller and likely 64L Micron TLC NAND. Good budget drive, particularly at this price, for someone needing faster than spinning disk cheap storage.

Quote from TechnicallySaved :
Dont get me wrong, good deal but you may be able to find a chip drive that will provide much faster speeds for around same price, if not the same it wouldn't be much more maybe 10-15 bucks...

I'd recommend going that route for about double the transfer speeds you would see with this budget drive. If it was 60 bucks or so I would consider this a better bargain...
Please enlighten the uniformed. What's a chip drive? How does one distinguish it from this deal?

I think they mean an NVMe drive. Much faster for even the cheapest ones and you can easily find 1tb for around this price or a little more. If you don't mind going the used route you can find NVMes with 3500mbs read speeds for this price.

As far as I know No. MacBook Airs already have an SSD

Yes. This drive is the correct size (2.5") and interface (SATA III) to replace the drive on a PS4.

Suggest that you may want to search for a larger (eg. 2TB) drive, though. Games eat lots of disk these days.

Make sure you have slim. The older ps4 only sata 1, the slim had sata 2. Upgrade to ssd on an old ps4 will not give any improvement.
