    thats why I hope newer platforms replace sata with nvme slots, right now I got 5 sata ports essentially wasting bandwidth that I wont ever use instead of being allocated to my secondary nvme slot

    they are at price parity at least on amazon, and anything 2tb+ just makes no sense, just buy a bunch of 1tb units

    Well i still use hdds and a lot of users bulk storage reasons atm i have 2tb one and a 3tb one and when i fill the 3tb one i will add another one most likely 4tb ... I live alone i have no use for a nas really :p

    I would very much agree more m2 slots will be welcome ! Even if some these m2 slots are actually sata .

    no thanks, SAS would be preferable over m.2.

    esphack is right for gamers. not for everyone, we all have our different needs for storage like our different tastes in software.

    i have a vast library of lossless music and i long ago digitized video so i have my whole library so to conserve space and energy i retired my 12 spinning disk NAS (system incl. legacy spinners still working) and have gone to a 12Tb SSD based NAS of six 2Tb SSDs. i would rather have a single box NAS of three drives with an empty slot
