I was looking at this SSD
http://www.microcenter.com/product/428577/840_EVO_MZ-MT...

But it says it has a 3.0Gb/s, so would this be slower than another SSD like this?

They are both basically same price, so which would be better?

THe mSATA 3.0Gb/s (SATA2) device will have less bandwidth versus the 2.5" SATA device at 6.0Gb/s (SATA3) but "ONLY" if your mainboard supports SATA 6Gb/s (SATA3)

If your mainboard only supports SATA 3Gb/s (SATA2) then there will probably be little to no difference in performance, as they are both rated for the same Read/Write speeds and IOPS

That's an incorrect listing. Both devices are sata 3 (6gb/s). But that's msata not m.2.

Good catch, i should have realized being they are same model, just different interface they would be same SATA generation.
