Lowest cost option:

MyDigitalSSD BPX Pro 2TB, $229, 5 year warranty:
https://www.amazon.com/MyDigitalS...B07F992T5F
  • BPX Pro | M.2 2280-S-M | PCIe 3.1 x4 NVMe SSD | PHISON E12 Controller
  • NVM Express 1.3 Protocol | PCI Express Gen 3 x4 Interface
  • Read Speed : 3400MB/s | Write Speed : 3100MB/s
  • Endurance : Up to 3,115 TBW
  • 5 Year Limited Warranty
Interesting info & perspective from a Reddit thread:

https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc..._s70_nvme/
  • Both (Samsung & addlink) are PCIe m.2 NVMe, though the Samsungs are made from the supposedly-faster MLC NAND chips, compared to Addlink's TLC NANDs.
  • Although, Fakespot.com, which supposedly spots fake reviews, gave the Amazon reviews on this product a solid F grade. A couple of other Addlink products on Amazon -- mostly for the older 3.5" SSDs -- have been reviewed well, and Fakespot says they're fine.
I ordered one and am going to give it a try. Figured it's absolutely worth it at this price. It's replacing a Samsung 970 Pro so it will be interesting to see how it performs.

FYI, this uses Phison E12 with 64L 3D TLC from Toshiba (BiCS3) according to u/newmaxx, so basically Sabrent Rocket or Inland Premium.

Right. There are actually nine brands that share the Phison E12 platform:

addlink
MyDigitalSSD BPX Pro
Corsair MP510
Inland Premium NVMe
Seagate BarraCuda/FireCuda 510
Silicon Power P34A80
Team MP34
Gigabyte Aorus (RGB)
Sabrent Rocket

and more according to newmaxx:

"In general I consider these drives to be 'budget 970 EVOs' - similar performance profile at a lower cost - although they will fall behind the newer 970 EVO Plus which uses 96-layer NAND."

Bottom line....the addlink has a 2TB offering, a great price point and a great warranty.

Update: Received and installed the BPX Pro drive. So far so good! Feels as fast as the Samsung 970 Pro, but that's entirely just first impression / subjective. Will post performance stats as a follow up. If it proves to be anywhere near the performance, you absolutely cannot beat the price for performance, size, and warranty.

So... what would be a comparable model in SSD format? Something that I could use in an older laptop that needs a boost but is still limited to SATA3?

Does anyone know of 2TB drives that are single sided? I got the WAVLINK Thunderbolt deal for $50 but need a drive now. Ive found a few higher end ones - Samsung 970, Toshiba XG5-P, and WD Black SN750 - but would like to be close to $200. Above $250 I'll just go with a usbc ext housing and a cheaper drive.
