    Hello @Starlight5,

    although i'm sure to have seen a SSD T3 review in english with pictures i can not find that now. The reviewers didn't dissamble it. However, you can have a look at this german review:
    https://www.golem.de/news/portable-ssd-t3-im-test-2-tbyte-fuer-unterwegs-1602-119272.html

    The attached pictures show that it is one mSATA drive with an MGX labelled controller. They say it has 48 Layer 256 GBit TLC Flash (V-Nand v3) and 2 GByte of LPDDR3-1866, not LPDDR2, which is very good regarding energy consumption.

    @Kommando thank you very much!

    Are there any m.2 2TB drives available, other than 960 Pro?

    Unfortunately not. I searched for a 2 TB m.2-SSD long enough, but there is only one available: the overpriced 960 Pro. Thats why i ended up buying the 2 TB 850 Evo (SATA). ;)

    @Kommando sadly newer machines of size and form-factor I favor mostly do not have 2.5" slot at all, so I will have to embrace the stupid form factor. Would be great if at least mSATA fits inside the notebook I just ordered, to save me some $$$. Major problem with m.2 is that there are no refurbished enterprise drives for sale, and when they appear - those will be 22110.

    You can have a look on the Micron SSD 5100 (Evo, Evo TCG, Pro, Pro TCG). Just found them. They are either new or flew kinda under the radar, because they are available not with 2 TB, but with 1.92 TB. In 2280. The price is okish ranging from 765 - 973€ . Maybe less in the US. The SSD T3 costs a bit less, but you need an additional adapter.

    Either way they are far less expensive than the Pro.

    Those 2 2TB m.2 drives cost more than the laptop itself... The price is absolutely vulgar...

    BTW, is thjere a 2TB mSATA drive?
