Everybody seems to be getting excited about the nvme interface SSDs on
M2 connectors. And everybody says they're so much faster than SATA 3
which is limited to 6Gbps. But it isn't. SATA 3.2 came out years ago
and it's 16Gb/s. So is there any point in buying an M2 shaped SSD? I
can't find any sensible comparisons online anywhere.

I use a NVMe M2 drive of 225 Gb as a temp drive. It works fast and
flawlessly. I'm very content with it.

From the review I saw, only Samsung make them so far (and Kingston but at half the speed).

Statistics show that 25% of all women are on medication for mental illness.
That's scary! It means 75% are running around with no bloody medication at all!!!
