Amazons Fire TV Stick finally lands in India with a Rs. 4,000 price tag

Apr 19 3:58am The Next Web » Gadgets
Nearly three years after the original Fire TV Stick launched, Amazon has brought its miniscule video streaming dongle to India.

Solid-state drives, or SSDs, improve performance over mechanical hard drives (HDD). However, if you want the fastest SSD around, you need to know two things: the connector and protocol. There are three different connectors. The most common is SATA, common to desktops and laptops. Then there’s M.2, a smaller form factor common to laptops and Ultrabooks. Finally, there’s PCIe, which is a desktop-exclusive connector. On the other hand, protocols are split between the older AHCI and the lightning-fast NVMe. M.2 includes NVMe and SATA, whereas SATA is AHCI only.
