Hi there - Long time lurker and first time poster. I've been on the hunt for a high capacity NMVE and saw that this just went down in price again.

Same price on Amazon (sold by micro center but fulfilled by Amazon, so may be a good option for Prime members). Seems read/write is a little slow for NVME but also seems like a good price for 2TBs. Thx for posting OP

One of the cheaper deals on 2TB NVME drives I've seen so far, but as others have noted it's a tad on the slow side. Would still be a big upgrade over most SATA SSDs. I have the Inland Premium version that goes up to 3.2GBps and have been quite happy with it so far, but you pay about $40 more than this for that speed.

I thought I read somewhere that the chip foundry to make nvme 4.0 has much more "specialized" equipment.. and it was not a simple matter of who's got the patent and how much they will charge to license off brands to make ssd.

Dude. Pci-e 4 SSD has been out for a year and it didn't effects price. Price are dropping because of over capacity.

Is the QLC proven ? I heard it's not as robust or reliable for long term like MLC and TLC based drives. Not sure the TBW is good for lots of read and writes. I currently run a 256GB Samsung MLC from 2010 solid as a rock, and a inland 512GB TLC NVME in my $249 Asus both been reliable but hesitant for a 2TB QLC.

1500 TBW (terabytes written) for this drive will last a very very long time. I purchased a Crucial P1 (QLC-based) about 1.5 years ago. It's in my daily driver, which is a gaming and photo editing machine, and I'm currently sitting at ~12 TBW on this drive (according to CrystalDiskInfo). Its endurance is rated for 200 TBW, so at my current rate of about 10 TBW per year, I've got at least another 10-18 years to go. I certainly plan on upgrading to a 2-4TB SSD well before that time comes.

FYI, this is a pretty standard price. I have been watching the Microcenter Inland brand M.2 drives for a while, and this particular model has been at this price for the last 4-5 months.

Same price? Showing $235 for me

edit: thought this was the premium. this is the professional, which is the same price on amazon.

As a storage/gaming drive, would one notice a real world difference between this (inland professional) versus (inland premium or adata xpg sx8200 pro)?

Not a chance. Even when compared to a SATA SSD, the game load times are virtually identical.
