1 Imao, the Pixel 3a and the larger one are pointless when you can order a flagship Xiaomi for about the same price, and it even works on Verizon.  (Also, later this year, apparently Verizon is going to shut off their 3G CDMA network and then we won't have to ever see "only works on GSM carriers like AT&T" in Amazon listings ever again.

2 Low-end NVMe is still much faster than SATA and the prices are getting close.  May I present (I'm using one right now) Inland's https://www.microcenter.com/product/505058/512gb-ssd-3d-nand-m2-2280-pcie-nvme-gen-3-x2-internal-solid-state-drive-(512g)
512GB PCIe 3.0 x2 SSD for $49.99.  (Apologies if that link gets chewed up; FF doesn't seem to work well with  the link inserter.)

3 Hit Post too soon.  That drive is about half as fast as an x4 drive, or about 3x as fast (at peak speeds) as a SATA SSD.  It made a nice upgrade from the 256GB SATA drive that came with my work Optiplex.

4 Yeah, I'll be getting a 2TB Intel 660p soon.  It's QLC, but the 2TB model has up to 280GB of SLC cache depending on how full it is, so as long as you don't fill it up the performance is great.  Again it's x2, but still 1800MB/s.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
