[GLLUG] Replacing an old SSD

The SSD in one of my desktop machines (the first one which I bought -
Feb 2012) is showing signs of failure and so needs replacing.

I could just but another SATA SSD and slot it in, but I notice that
increasinly SSDs are coming in mSATA and m.2 formats, and there are
adaptors available to PCI Express.

Can anyone say what the pros and cons of moving to the new format are?
Obviously it means you aren't taking up an SATA port, but is there
anything else one should know?
