I saw this deal for a 256GB Intel SSD that I am thinking of buying to install in my Dell XPS 8900 that currently has a 1TB HDD.  The price looks decent.

My usage is mainly photo and video editing, other than general purpose stuff. No gaming. 

My question is - the MB on my Dell accepts M.2 drives as well. Is there any benefit from spending over $100 for a comparable M.2 drive? 

Thanks!

Whilst an SSD is an huge improvement, whatever is the current use of the system, i probably wouldn't spend 100$ more for a M2 driver, but that depends from your budget allowance.
