Some scary 1-star and 2-star reviews around reliability.
I bought the 1 tb version a month ago. The thing would accept a windows install, then be ok for a day, then the mobo wouldn't recognize existed it at all after the computer went to sleep. After playing with it for hours I managed to get another windows install onto the thing, then it just died completely shortly after, never to be recognized by my computer ever again. Wasn't a great experience.

Is this worthwhile to put into a 2.5" SSD adapter into my 2013 iMac ?

The standard 5400RPM hard drive in my iMac is going bad - very slow.
I heard that a SSD replacement is a big change for the iMac....

No reason why you shouldnt be able to put a sata ssd to replace a sata hdd. Will make a huge loading difference. Might also be able to use an m.2 nvme drive like this one with a pcie adapter if you got an open spot.

That blue is a SATA drive. You defintely want NVMe over SATA for performance.

WD does make an NVMe drive for the same price LINK [amazon.com] but the ADATA is superior IMO. It has a DRAM cache buffer which is desirable while the WD does not (i.e it is DRAM-less info [youtube.com].)

512gb SX8100 claimed speeds = Read 3500MB/s, Write 2400MB/s
500gb WD Blue SN550 claimed speeds = Read 2400MB/s, Write 1950MB/s
WD550 is a better drive. Don't confuse SX8200 Pro with SX8100.

FWIW the 8200 Pro is an ideal choice for laptops due to it's low power consumption characteristics.
Source: Me. I did a LOT of research prior to choosing, and price was not a consideration in doing so.
SX8200 is a dual sided drive, which eliminates it from most newer laptops.

Good deal.

Is it still generally accepted that gen4 is not worth the extra cost over a gen3 like this?

And is it still the case that all the gen4 drives currently available use the Phison E16 controller and are therefore pretty similar to one another?

Marvell did finally release their gen4 controller series in January LINK [minitool.com] but I can't find any drives using one.
Gen4 worth the price you are paying for it. SX8100 is a budget drive, so comparing it to MP600 doesn't make much sense.
Take a look at price difference between 970 Evo Plus and MP600 and you will notice that it is not significant.
