This WD blue M.2 isn’t good performance: for $129 it delivers 1TB using SATA at 560 mbps.

Whereas the XPG SX8200 pro costs $219 yet uses NVMe and delivers 1TB at 3500 mbps.

See the May 1 2019 comparison article here:

Incidentally you need to know if your motherboard has an m.2 slot and what form factors it accepts. The two m.2 ssd’s mentioned here are both form factor 2280, which is one of the factors my motherboard is compatible with.

You can't put a NVMe in a M.2 SATA or vice versa it won't fit...

Ok after jumping thru substantial hoops to setup a Canada Computers account, I find out they’re never going to mail out the $199 WD Black M.2. In-store pickup only, and you have to live in Vancouver, Montreal, or Ontario.

Unlike Amazon, NewEgg won't apply PST if shipped to Quebec. Also, NE shipped my SSD very quickly.

NVMe and SATA are transfer protocols. M.2 is a form factor. Much like 2.5" and 3.5" for SSDs and HD.
From my understanding they have different pins so it won't fit properly. For example look at the picture of these 2 M.2 products.
https://www.amazon.ca/Blue-NAND-1TB-SSD ... way&sr=8-1
https://www.amazon.ca/Black-SN750-500GB ... way&sr=8-1
The pins are clearly noticeably different it won't fit properly if you get the wrong one.
