Inland Premium 1TB SSD 3D NAND M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe is on sale for $119.99. Now $99.99

This SSD uses a Phison E12 controller, so practically the same drive as a Corsair Force MP510, MyDigitalSSD BPX Pro, Silicon Power P34A80, and the Sabrent Rocket SSD's. The drive ships with the latest Phison E12 firmware (12.1)

That's very true, I trust Samsung because it's not like any of their devices randomly caught on fire or exploded over the last few years laugh out loud

Phison e12 drives such as this one are superior in nearly all metrics compared to the Hp EX920. These are often compared to Samsung 970 evo's... slightly inferior in some metrics but much more budget friendly

Pick one, they are basically carbon copies of one another, and all can use the same firmware update tool.

Curious. I cannot find review of the "Premium" anywhere. To the point I almost replied that you made a typo, until I found this product: https://www.microcenter.com/produ...tate-drive
It's slightly cheaper but substantiallly slower based on specs, and only PCIe x2 to boot. So if you are looking for reviews on the Premium, (which again I cannot find yet) be aware of which product you are looking at, for reference.


***Also, please mark in your post that this coupon for $5 is IN-STORE ONLY (still good price with shipping fee though).

Yes the professional one that you linked you get half the speeds at only a $5 savings. Be careful not to get that one as the packaging is almost identical! Supposedly the Premium drive started shipping in recent months, so there probably aren't many reviews on it. It's also a Microcenter brand.

Below is a review of the Silicon Power P34A80, which is another Phison E12 SSD with the exact same hardware.

Another review for the MyDigitalSSD BPX Pro with the same Phison E12 controller:

Also, a lot of discussion about this drive in this thread on Hard Forum:

Saw this benchmark comparing this Inland SSD to the Samsung 970 Evo (attached). Pretty unreal that you can get this kind of performance for such a low price...

If this is identical with sabreny rocket 1tb nvme., the price is tempting. Sabrent was $125.

I install on my proxmox baremetal. Running All VMs are very quick and responsive. Random i/o is very good too

This is an amazing deal. If you don't think so, don't buy them. More for the rest of us Big Grin

The compatibility issues come from lack of 512e (512 byte emulation) which is from the old hard drive days when "no one needs more than 1 Megabyte". It doesn't make sense on flash technology with caches in the Gigabyte range.

If you try to "clone" 1:1 partitions that are 512e, you're going to have problems.
If you re-create new partitions and move data over - no problems.

The best option is a clean install, and copy your data over.

I'd like to see the comparison, when the SLC cache (if it has any) fills up....

As for the 4K. It's only going to be an issue if your disk cloning software sucks. There's plenty of good ones out there that can handle cloing from 512 to 4K. If yours can't, it's time to find a better one that can, IMO.

When I tried to check out, I always got this error:

Unable to verify billing address.

Anybody has the same situation as me?
