    Why oh why can't this be nVME?
    Why do I have all the bad luck? :( But hey...2TB on a SSD. At least you don't have to pay for THIS

    There already is the Samsung 2TB M.2 NVME PCIE x4 for 2x the cost ($1299), what a waste of money that is :)

    I had been waiting for the 2TB SATA M.2's ($639) to arrive, they are over a year late.

    It's too late for me, but hopefully someone else can benefit from them at 1/2 the cost of the NVME M.2's. :)

    I will benefit from that since i want an m.2 ssd that won't interfere with the nvme slot on my P750-ZM. The only way that is happening is if it's SATA and doesn't use the PCI-e lanes of the nVME drive. But for now I need a job and money to afford any of that...

    $500 or slightly less (half the price of 2TB 960 Pro if you know where to buy) would be swell. Even at the announced price, it's definitely better than 2TB Micron 5100 m.2 2280 SATA which retails about the same as much better in all regards Samsung part!
