As far as I'm aware, as long as it's the correct size, and has no memory modules on the back, it will fit. Any double sided SSD's are too fat. Compatibility with the deck should be the same as any PC.

The deck has a M.2 2230 SSD Slot, but I'm not sure which size your SSD has🤔

Where did you find this sheet? Are all compatible SSD's on there?
It's linked in post #4. Just looked up the labeling that you can see in the photo.

EDIT:
The datasheet is just about Western Digital PC SN520 NVMe SSDs.
But since the Deck has an ordinary M.2 slot, in theory any M.2 SSD is also compatible. You could even connect a 2242 or 2080 with an extension-flatband cable (adapter) and it would probably work.
The only thing that matters for the Deck is the form factor. As you and @RuderLaplace pointed out, "fat" SSDs are not a good idea. But as long as it's a "single sided" M2. 2230 SSD, there shouldn't be any problems.
Keep in mind, that you have to transfer the shielding to your new SSD to avoid interference.

It seems to me that these two are compatible and you should have no problems installing them. If you do it on your own, you need to pay close attention to it, because errors can occur as a result. The thermal performance of the Deck could be impacted, as installing a new SSD requires at least one of the APU's screws to be removed. Your SSD might use more power than the Stream Deck's pre-installed SSD, which could impact battery life. Make sure, and when you need it, use the DATA RECOVERY service to get the deleted data back.
