LITEON (the company behind Plextor, is offering their new EPX M.2 SSD NVMe series storage units, these puppies can hold up to a whopping 1.92TB of storage volume.
While intended for the enterprise/server market, I wouldn't mind using these in desktops hanks ts to additional power loss protection. The EPX will become available in two models, a 960 GB and 1.92TB. Be aware though, that the M.2. units are following the 10cm M.2 22110 form factor, mostly motherboards support up-to 8cm. Then again, a lot of recent motherboards easily support the length.

It is protected with some power loss protection as well, including, "end-to-end data path protection" and proprietary error correction as well as "RAIFE" data protection thanks to extra capacitors. without compromising the server's reliability, it becomes possible to high-speed data access.
