Agreed. It has NVMe interface; it uses Micron TLC NAND FLASH, DDR3 DRAM and industry-wide accepted controller from Phison, pretty good combination IMO.
Unless you are running a data center with mission-critical data, and you need absolute best TWD like Samsung 970 PRO, the SSD drives from Inland, ADATA, Sabrent and some other smaller companies are great for 99% of consumers.
I use cheapo SSD drive from Inland in my laptops and desktops, but for NAS and database applications like Netxcloud try to use Samsung PRO is it's possible ( although had to return mine for overheating issues and go with ADATA XPG 8200 last year ).

Incorrect. Just as SLC did, MLC is fading into niche applications. The majority of enterprise drives are now TLC. Enterprise drives have more OP, allowing much more consistent write performance as well as more endurance, but these characteristics are implemented with controller architecture and OP, not with MLC anymore.

(source: I worked for one of these enterprise SSD/flash manufacturers, back in the enterprise systems space, but lots of hands on.)

Yeah, so far self encryption has proven to be a poorly implemented insecure joke. See security now episode grc.com/sn

Slow drive
Because steady-state speed means the lower bound, while the consumer SSDs only show you the upper bound. This drive seems to have the capacitors to protect the data from accident power lost.

The 97.99 Inland Premium 1TB from Micro Center is a much better buy in this price category.

I would avoid if it's doesn't have a warranty. Micron is usually sold to manufacturers and include no warranty.

This.
Micron does no sell a retail version of SSDs, the retail SSDs sold under the name Crucial and they are decent. It can be confirmed by calling directly to customer service. We have seen deals from Rakuten a few times last year.
