Are these better/worse than any of the comparable PCIe 4.0 NVME SSD drives on the market?

If you search NewEgg; you can find a NVME SSD Western Digital Black 1TB that has a built in heat sink for $149.99. It's fast, has better cooling, and optimized for a gaming rig. I'd go for that one.

The PCIe3 drives, like the one from WD below, are not as fast as these PCIe4 drives. Both are sold on Newegg and the XPG Gammix S50 is clearly faster. Whether you can tell the difference in typical use is another question.

Unless you are going for an Intel Optane I don't think you'll be able to tell any real world difference. But, I did want to share another NVME that my friend recommended: the Patriot VPN100.

You can find it on NewEgg and Amazon for $129-139. Not the fastest NVME (mind you, it is one of the faster ones so the difference is negligible)—but it has the added benefit of a high endurance rating and decent Heatsink.

I'm hoping the "gaming" edition by Patriot goes on sale for a similar price

I think the Phison E16 is the only 4.0 controller on the market, so all of the drives are pretty much interchangeable aside from heatsinks/cooling.

This isn't a good deal, Amazon ran specials on these before xmas for as low as 119.99. You can get the Sabrent Rocket 4.0 for 149 pretty regularly. Most people will not notice a difference between PCIe 3.0 and 4.0 m2's. Don't waste your money.

Yep.

Check my SSD spreadsheet to see upcoming 4.0 drives using other controllers: SMI SM2264 and SM2267, Phison E18 and E19T, InnoGrit Rainier, Marvell Whistler Plus, and Samsung's updated Phoenix no doubt. Availability will be later this year.

My first Western Digital 1TB NVME died about 5 months ago, its warranty replacement just died a week ago. I own six other NVME drives from Samsung, Adata, and Intel, no problems at all. After this fiasco I'm done with WD. Haven't had any significant issues with their hard drives over the years, but my trust for these are out the door.
