Of course using a larger form-factor M.2 NVMe SSD would require extra space to accommodate it, I'm sure someone will eventually put together a custom outer shell for the Steam Deck; we'll see what happens.

That's a really interesting idea, and one would only need a little bit of spare space inside the Deck to route the cable.
You'd need a custom or altered back shell, assuming that's what one takes off to access the internals. Which would be somewhat of a pain to deal with due to the grip buttons on the back, however it would certainly be cheaper.

In Australia right now the price of a 512GB m.2 2280 2000Mbps sequential SSD is $80, while a 2230 1400Mbps sequential is like $250. Even accounting for a drop in 2230 SSD prices due to the steam deck, that would leave around $100 for the riser and back-plate/case, and even more if one wants a 1TB SSD.

Looking at replacing SSD, otherwise has done a bunch of SD card research.
