KIOXIA / Toshiba 2TB XG5-P Single-Sided M.2 2280 PCI Express 3.0 x4 (PCIe Gen3 x4) NVMe internal SSD in a clear plastic clamshell. You get nothing but the bare drive. The drive itself features KIOXIA 64-layer BiCS3 3D TLC NAND FLASH with a Toshiba TC58NCP090GSD controller and on-board DDR3 DRAM. Our 2TB sample uses 1Gb dies, so there are just two TLC NAND Flash chips on the drive

This is an OEM drive for HP. They use them in their retail systems. It's TLC with a DRAM Cache. It's really about as good as it gets for quality these days.
Warranty is from the seller and not Toshiba

"One of those companies would be MyDigitalDiscount, who purchased a large quantity of KIOXIA KXG50PNV2T04 XG5-P 2TB NVMe SSDs from what looks like HP. MyDigitalDiscount is now selling these 2TB drives on Amazon for $219.99 shippped ($0.11 per GB) after a coupon is applied and backing them with a 3-year warranty. Since this is an OEM drive by KIOXIA (Toshiba Memory) sold to HP there no physical drive warranty from either of those companies. We've worked with MyDigitalDiscount.com Inc. for over half a decade and the company has been open for 19 years, so it is a small American owned business that we trust."
It looks like the SD post took a paragraph from this review and didn't link to it. Here are performance numbers - https://www.legitreviews.com/tosh...iew_220866

got my 2tb sx8200 pro for the same price late last year. i feel $100 per 1tb is the marker for a good deal unless it is an exceptionally fast drive or pcie 4.0

You should do some Googling on what OEM means. It's the opposite of "generic" or "grey market".

Like in another post I made, I'm done with OEM drives. The two HP / Intel OEM NVMe SSDs I purchased are not capable of FW upgrades, unless you have an HP system to put them in. The price is awesome, but I do not want to take a chance at zero support.

Thank you for that info, but that's not what I am asking - I already saw all that info you posted which is found in multiple places on the web. I am asking for the TBW ENDURANCE rating for this drive. The TBW does not seem to be listed anywhere by Toshiba or any vendor.

To clarify for those people who don't know what TBW means:

TBW is an acronym for Terabytes Written (and DWPD is an acronym for Device Writes Per Day). Both are measures of the endurance of flash storage.

A metric used for SSD write endurance is Terabytes Written (TBW), which describes how much data can be written to the SSD over the life of the drive

Terabytes Written (TBW) directly measures how much you can write cumulatively into the drive over its lifetime.

Articles which explain more in-depth:
