It's sold on amazon BY microcenter. Probably charge more to make up the merchant fee amazon charges.

Typo... Controller is Phison E16.

Since many of us are cheap, there is a decent cost savings going with the drive based on the E12 controller, the E16's predecessor. (Most people won't be able to tell the difference in performance blah blah blah.) That drive is $111 at Amazon [amazon.com] and $100 at Microcenter [microcenter.com].

Regarding the difference, Anandtech [anandtech.com] has some info on these controllers....

Just skip this overpriced 4.0 drive (which you won't get the speed from unless you have an x570 amd motherboard anyway) and get the Inland Premium 1TB SSD 3D NAND M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive, $99 at microcenter or $110 through amazon.

FYI $10 cheaper at MicroCenter directly. Looks like Amazon MC figured out they can charge a premium when matching MC price drops on Amazon.

All true NVMe 4.0 drives use the same prisom controller. Only the memory type is different.

With its PS5016-E16 chip, Phison was the first to introduce client SSD controllers with a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface and is currently enjoying its unique position on the market. The PS5016-E16 is essentially an update of the PS5012-E12 — still featuring two Arm Cortex-R5 cores, eight NAND channels rated at 800 MT/s and made using TSMC's 28 nm process technology, but now featuring a PCIe 4.0 x4 PHY and enhanced error correction capabilities.

Is there any benefit to getting these over a cheaper pny as? I bought one 4 years ago when it was 3x the price and its starting to fail now. it's out of warranty so in the market but internet tells me ssd's will eventually fail.
So should I just stick with cheap ones or do these last longer

How long your SSD lasts is mainly a component of the quality of the NAND and the quantity of the overprovisioning. The specific firmware implementation and the architecture of the drive as a whole can play a very big difference.

These cheap SSDs are built essentially with off the shelf components specifically for the consumer market. They don't expect you to do a lot of writes nor be impacted by things like latency or IOPS consistency. Buying from a more established brand will likely get you a better product but then you'll end up paying more so that's ultimately the trade off.

If you want a product that will last a lifetime then you'll want to go with more enterprise products. If you expect to replace your drive within 5 years then it makes sense to go with whatever consumer product comes with the longest warranty within your budget.

Who needs that much speed 5000mb/s!?
I could actually use it at times on one of my work systems. Hypervisor guests and database systems are the two biggest consumers of disk I/O....poor disk or database indexing causes a lot. With disk writes, there's a big difference between copying large contiguous files stored on appropriate block sizes vs copying many small files that may cause a lot more stop/start of a data stream. If you're doing the latter, I'd be interested to see how it performs.

If these drives were available 20 years ago, journaling file systems may be more prevalent today. SCSI used to rule and SATA disks finally got faster, but none can compare to SSD....these speeds are screaming. I can only imagine throwing a bunch of these in an array and actually sending them some work.

Very much so. The two things that will kill NVMe drives are heat and write cycles and with how good the cell tech is on modern SSDs it's likely that heat will kill it before you hit anywhere near enough write cycles.
