not bad but looks like with QLC there is lower TBW endurance, rated for 100 TBW per https://ark.intel.com/products/14...4-3D2-QLC-

This or the HP EX920 M.2 512GB PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe 3D TLC NAND?
QLC vs TCL?

Avoid QLC if you can. Still at first gen line of products. High latency and slower than hard drives in large data transfers.

The EX920 and it's variants/clones (Adata 8200) are incredibly good drives - neck and neck with the EV 970 for a fraction of the cost. The drives based on that controller are editor's choice on essentially every big tech site so can't go wrong especially with the huge BF deals on them.

Does anyone sell affordable Pcie slot adapters for these? If it held two or four that would be awesome.

Sequential Read: Up to 1800MB/s, Sequential Write: Up to 1800MB/s

While faster than SATA drives, it is roughly twice as slow as leading NVMe drives. The recent deal on WD Black [amazon.com] is just $15 more ($90 after coupon), but you get a real "full-speed" NVMe (3,400MB/s read, 2,800 MB/s write)

Awesome, repped.

Nothing affordable that supports two simultaneous NVMe drives though I presume?

i beg to differ.

i jumped on SSD over a decade ago, and actually own some SLC SSDs. yes those SLC ssd last like forever (i think i put about 50T of write on 32G SLC ssd and still using it). the truth is most people will never use more than a few P/E cycle on their storage . say the worse case scenario that you only got 1 P/E cycle. for the same price, most consumer will be way better served with a 1 PB drive with 1 P/E cycle than a 1G drive with a million P/E cycle.

Yeah, but instead of getting us better technology, or the better tech at a lower price, we're just getting lower level tech at slightly "discounted" prices.

Not to mention that if you happen to be putting these through some file moves you can fill the cache and then get speeds slower than platter drives.

Old SLC ssd's never hit cache walls like that.
