Ah so they are different then. My bad. I knew they were in a way
but couldn't remember well enough. So to be clear and thanks for
reminding me Brian. All I was origenaly saying is that as far as I
had remembered it was a connector or memory difference but for the
person's need I couldn't really explain because and perhaps I
misread the message I thought they thought M.2 NV ME was a type of
SSD if you will. I guess then to an extent it is. Thanks for the
reminder. I use to really be up on these things since I watched PC
Perspective and they talk a lot about these things as it's a PC

You cannot separate the two. An M.2 NVME SSD does, indeed, look
more like a memory stick than a conventional disc drive, but that
was simply an evolution in design. SATA SSDs were developed so
that you could "plug n' play" replace existing drives with SSDs.
I'm not saying that there are no differences, because there are,
and M.2 NVME has significantly faster throughput.
But they're both solid state drives. I'd say, by way of analogy,
the difference between a SATA SSD and M.2 NVME SSD is akin to the
difference between a 5200 RPM HDD and a 7200 RPM HDD. Both SSD
technologies are, at their heart, solid state devices just like
both of the speeds of HDDs are, at their heart, spinning platter
P.S.: The drives I recently had fail were both SATA-type SSDs,
Not M.2 NVME
