Best 2.5 inch ssd?

Ok so a traditional sata SSD

What is the best m.2 2280 ssd with 340-512gb under $56?

Definitely not a traditional sata SSD.... M.2 is a completely different form factor than a 2.5" SSD. Here are a couple of options within your price bracket:

The Adata drive is the cheapest 480GB SSD available on the market, the crucial is a better SSD than the adata, the XPG is the cheapest NVMe SSD that is within your price range. I figured I would cover both 2.5" and M.2 considering your self contradiction.

If you can boost your budget a bit to around $60 here are some other options:

The 2.5" SSD here has built in cache which would help speed it up a bit and the M.2 is one of the best valued NVMe SSDs on the market today.

No matter what you pick just remember the absolute slowest SSD on the market today is MUCH faster than the fastest HDD on the market today.
