What SSD Form Factor Do I Want?
My SSD is full.
My computer only has SATA3 and no M.2 slots. I'd like to be able to use any new SSD I buy with my hypothetical future new computer and not feel like I really should've bought a different hard drive.
1. Are M.2 NGFF-to-2.5" drive adapters a worthwhile technology or do they neuter drive performance to worse than a dedicated SATA3 2.5" SSD?
2. What physical M.2 form factor (card length) is the one the industry is going to adopt as standard?
3. Am I even approaching this problem correctly? Should I just delete a bunch of stuff and wait until I want to buy a new PC (years) or buy a 2.5" SATA3 drive and be done with it?
