Interesting. My late 2013 MBP retina has a speaker problem (sound like the voice is broken). If I decide to open it up to fix then it’s worth to upgrade the SSD as well

If i only have 1 nvme slot and no usb nvme enclosure, can I clone my current 256GB nvme to this 1TB nvme by creating a disk image?

Bought one, according to the review: "Best DRAMless SSD Yet".

Ahhhh literally got one click away from pulling the trigger! But timed out during "obligatory indecision research"... plus there have been a few sales lately, and I feel like prices will continue to come down.

Damn feelings.

Wondering how this compares to the WD black sn750s, and whether the 750s are worth the 40$ price difference.

The SN750 is only really worth the extra money if you do content creation and work with large files, where you'll be writing to disk a lot.

Yes, some Macs can be upgraded with m.2 drives (various MacBooks, iMac, Mac mini). You will need an adapter, though. The good news is those adapters are pretty cheap ($15-25) and easily available on Amazon.

This is an excellent guide:

Couldn't resist - I just bought the black 750 last week, but I bought a USB 3.2 enclosure to format and install an OS on it and have this cool Sabrent enclosure needing a drive, so this is great. For the Macbook Retina upgraders - I think the NVMe external enclosure is the easiest route, but I think I've seen some people upgrade just using a USB flash drive plus a bunch of work in Terminal.
