No clue but the chips and brand are Micron and I don't know how much more reliable you could get in the memory world than that.​

If anything, buy it because it's American.

Isn't this a fairly normal price for a QLC drive? Seems to be in-line with the Intel 660p prices.

still a little new at this but it seems like the read/write speeds are about half of what the samsungs are. is that correct? thinking it might be worth it to just hold off on a better deal. any opinions?

Ssd's from crucial are reliable these days since they are owned by micron and their mx500 competes with samsung one.

At this pricepoint I'll suggest to get adata xpg sx8200 from rakuten if speed matters which are also an alternate choice.

Ordered one from Google Express for $162.84 after tax. I got a few 20% off coupon ($20 max discount) and the store DigitalShopper.com is selling is for $173 plus tax.

Small discount but still a discount Big Grin.

I'd like to know how this drive is. So please report back asap.
The only thing that is preventing me from buying is the 200 TBW. That's super low and especially for a 1tb drive. When all the others are 400, 600 and 800+

QLC drives are way inferior to TLC drives. They are much less reliable, slower, and on average has only 10% the service life. If a TLC drive would have lasted you 10 years, a QLC drive would last just 1.

So why are QLC drives being sold as more expensive than TLC? They should be half the price or less. Stop buying this crap or you're basically telling the whole flash industry that they can charge you more and give you an inferior product.

It is, but QLC is the perfect replacement for mechanical drives at a similar $/GB, but with speed. Also, QLC having the possibility of having 8TB for ~$300, that's a major positive for those that push big fast data.

The price is similar because it's still new and uses PCI-E.

The question I want to ask, is how long is the endurance? 5 years? If so, that's more than enough for me.

Oh yeah it's totally cool if the price comes down. I'm just saying that at this current price, no one should be putting up with the compromises of QLC when TLC is the same price or cheaper. It's like you get offered a Ferrari and a Dodge at the same price and you picked the Dodge for some reason. Doesn't make sense. Also keep in mind that for writes, QLC can actually be slower than mechanical drives.

The endurance is 200TBW which is 200 terabytes written to the drive before it fails. Most people won't ever use it, but keep in mind that OS updates and reinstalls also eat into that. If you do not install or uninstall a lot of stuff, or edit movies or copy a ton of photos around, you should be fine with a QLC drive. But just not at this price.

Sounds like a "few writes, many reads" kind of drive. Hmm... storage server?

Yes. QLC is best suited for a media storage drive. You place pictures and videos in there and you'd never delete or edit them - just read.
