I'm trying to choose between the two, is there any difference besides what slot they go into? Is the pcie faster than the sata? Thanks!

M2 SATA SSDs share the same NAND and controllers with their 2.5" counterparts so they are no faster than a regular 2.5" SSD. NVMe drives are much faster and use the PCI-E bus so they can make use of that speed.

Really the only reason for the M2 SATA drives are for laptops or where space is at a premium.
