Sort of yes, sort of no.

"If you follow our storage coverage, then you've already seen this PCB on a few occasions. Phison makes most, if not all of the drives that are turned over to partners, which then become retail products. That's why nearly all of the S10-based drives are identical. There are, however, a few different PCB revisions to accommodate various types of flash. Zotac's Premium Edition SSDs use NAND packaged from wafers outside of Toshiba (we were told the Premium Edition uses Toshiba 19nm dies; companies buy the flash at the wafer level, then bin and sort for different products)."

if that's the case then this is a steal of a deal. because i haven't seen toshiba/ocz mlc nand drives going for this price or less.

as long as zotac has a good warranty department it's worth the gamble.
