I am a layperson, but as I understand it, primarily:
>The HP EX920 uses the high-end SM2262 controller, while the HP EX900 uses the entry-level SM2263XT.

https://www.anandtech.com/show/13...er-preview

TLDR Performance differences, lack of DRAM

Edit: look at old threads on this ex920 drive and there is deeper knowledge on the controller differences and the implications on drive speed

Edit2: specifically:

>SM2263XT controller with 64L 3D TLC NAND from IMFT (Intel/Micron). This controller is the DRAM-less variant of the SM2263 as used on the Intel 660p and Corsair P1, although it leverages HMB (host memory buffer) technology to use system memory for DRAM cache. This controller is four-channel as opposed to the eight-channel SM2262/EN found in the EX920, although the EX920 and EX900 share the same NAND. HMB support is determined by OS/driver but should work with Windows 7 and up.
>I consider this drive a budget NVMe option or SATA replacement: its price is cheap enough to consider over a SATA option while not being a full-fledged, high-performance desktop NVMe solution. It's single-sided and relatively low-power (no local DRAM, four-channel) and so it is especially good for mobile/SFF, although it does not come in higher capacities like its QLC-based cousins. I would consider it superior to those QLC options at this capacity.

I've had one for several months now. No issues. It is not my primary drive and honestly is a light duty drive for me right now, but still, no issues. They've released a firmware fix for the stuck 54 C temperature reading. I wonder if newly shipping drives still even have the buggy firmware from the factory.

Pretty sure this price is a new low. I paid at least $40 more for mine.

$15 more than the qlc 660p. This is probably worth it. Would this be fine for a primary boot drive?

Have a 6 month old ex920 256gb boot drive. Problems, 2 system reinstalls due to a drive error on boot up just recently. 3 year warranty that will be getting checked out rather quickly.

Apologies if this is a dumb question, but I could not find the firmware. Could you direct me to the site where it's located? Also, is it a straightforward flashing process?
