I think the sandisk ones are just M.2 in an enclosure with a built in adaptor. They're pretty small. And I'm not sure about the samsung ones, but they look smaller than a 2.5 device.
At work, we have some processes that write a lot of data to SSDs. Samsung drives seem to work well. We have had some other brands fail early, while the Samsung drives keep chugging along until they reach their limit of LBAs written, at which time we swap them out.

I have the m.2 sata B+M version in a usb enclosure working.

I have not and don’t have any m.2 nvme disks so don’t know about those.
