Keep in mind this is a SATA drive, which seems to have a thinner and thinner selection these days with faster drives.

thanks for posting this OP Smilie

I didn't see any official reviews for this but here's a reddit discussion that is a review of sorts if this helps anyone Smilie

https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc...tlc_solid/

apparently it's good as a secondary drive for file storage or games (I'm guessing) but not for say your "C" drive to install windows on

If your module is B&M SATA (most likely), connecting it to a B or M socket should work fine since both types support SATA.

Of course, being a bootable device is another story, this depends on your hardware and UEFI.

Depending on the use, this will still be faster than any old-fashioned hard drive even for drive C. Also, this is a SDD and not a NVMe gen 3 drive or gen 4 drive. If the system supports NVMe, you can get faster drives than this.

that is very true Smilie .. if you had windows installed on say a non ssd drive in your laptop or desktop computer this would be way faster, even more so than a "normal" non m2 (the bigger rectangle that doesn't look like a stick) ssd drive if you're installing windows/the C drive on it or even for other uses like gaming or what not Smilie ... having said that from what I understand if you're looking for a budget option the crucial MX500 series are supposed to be good (have DRAM, are known to be reliable) for a C/Windows drive ... depending on the quality of the drive it may support a number of read/writes to it or it may not and apparently the windows drive gets a lot of read/writes to it.

My two M2 slots are filled with NVMe drives. So I'd have to get an enclosure, it seems. Which makes me think there isn't much of a use case at least for me over any other ordinary SSD. Or am I missing some magic here?

If you have an original style 2.5 or 3.5inch hard drive as your main os drive, it is possible you don't have an m.2 slot (b or m) on your board. Just a heads up for people wanting to upgrade.

These drives are not NVME and will not work with most motherboards unless they specifically support it. I made the mistake of buying one.

If you have extra PCI-E slot, you can buy PCI-E to M.2 adapter and use NVME/SATA M.2 SSDs.

I bought 2 of these from Amazon a few days ago to replace the NVMe drives I wanted to keep from a laptop I'm selling. I didn't pay close enough attention to SATA III, so imagine my surprise when I saw the connectors looked slightly different. Anyway, I cracked open the laptop, and it turns out there's very clear writing on each slot. One says "NVMe + SATA" the other says "NVMe only". Not helpful for me, but I just wanted to clarify that these can be used in an NVMe slot IF your board supports it. You might have to locate your manual to find out.

Useful if you are still using an Athlon CPU on a AM4 motherboard or some low end laptops. Per the first post, it's like the better of the TeamGroup SATA drives and only gets bogged down in large file transfers.

The MP33 is $5 more for the rest of us.
