Wow, that is such a horrible design by Dell. Why would they do that?
The WD SN520 is not a great drive at that and you're now limited to 2242 drives, which in general are only sold to system integrators.
Sabrent seems to have something you could swap it out with, but I doubt it'll perform any better.
You might want to swap out the SATA hard drive for a SATA SSD instead.
