    @Tinderbox (UK) they gave up on mSATA eons ago - as most other did. Samsung were the only ones to release 1TB mSATA drives; other brands top out at 480/512GB, or even 240/256GB.

    Samsung is even selling 2 TB mSATA drives, you just can't buy them directly. It's in the portable SSD T3.

    Nice but mSATA just never really took off.. M2 literally killed it due to the smaller size and ability to have a direct PCIE connection..

    That's right, and i don't shed a single tear about mSATA. I just want to have that thing in m.2.
    In my opinion the only reason for not releasing a 2 TB m.2 850 Evo is: You can sell the same silicon for more $$$ if labeled as 960 pro... Sad...

    The Evo is TLC memory whereas the 960 Pro is MLC.. So totally different.. Also the 8 series is EOL.. The 960 Evo is what you are going to get in the 2TB capacity whenever its out..

    That's right. I better correct my statement:

    :)

    I'd even prefer a 960 Evo AHCI over NVME for compatibility and faster boot times.

    In the end I guess I'll go with the 2,5" 850 Evo. I wanted to have it as m.2, to have the option to use it as very small external drive later, when I replace it in the laptop. I'll have a second look after that when my tax refund arrived.

    Could you please kindly provide some confirmation for this? 2TB m.2 drives are almost non-existant and extremely expensive, while 2TB mSATA drive may fit inside some machines with m.2 2280 slot using an adapter.
