Ordered two a few days ago, one failed within 24 hours.
No real reviews or tests.... very new SSD so good luck I guess.... MX500 still the way to go.
So for the sake of discussion, what is your expertise? I've been in the industry for 35 years and in the business of system building, selling, and brokering computer components as my own company for 25+ years. Let's assume you are even partially correct--1 TB drives are hovering between high $70's add low $100's depending on specifications right now. You are suggesting putting up with an inferior drive (mechanical) or low available space to save $20-$30? Silly concept--if speed and space is important--than $7 a month is not a concern. For the record "oversupply" is not exactly true. As someone who buy between hundreds and thousands of drives per month--oversupply is limited to a few models--many of the models we use frequently are in allocation and 4-6 week back-orders. Demand for laptops and desktops is peaking due to Covid--back to school--work from home, etc. We are seeing HUGE demand for upgrades to bring old systems back to life and as a part of refurbishment. For the record even the alleged "worst" of these drives mentioned lately has a much lower failure rate than "platter" drives. We just had our first failed SSD in months and in the end it was a fauly power supply that over-volted it.

Not much data available about this one yet. Team Group's documentation says "evolved from GX2", which has the SM2258XT DRAM-less controller and Micron 64L NAND, making it a good general purpose SSD. Until there are some reliable reviews out there, there is no way to know if this one has the same internals.

How are you guys finding this? I keep getting taken to the page for the GX2 which is on sale today for the same price at Newegg.

Trying to figure out whether to go GX2 for $79 or investigate more this EX2 if I can find it. My very old 240gb SSD died yesterday - not this brand.

This is the truth. TeamGroup's handful of SSDs are all so variable in their hardware that it's not a good look. Also remember oversupply is still very much in effect, and you'll absolutely find the MX500 GOAT 2.5" for this price around BF/Christmas.

Now's not the time to buy RAM/SSDs (both NVMe and SATA III included) if you can hold of a couple more months for record lows.

I know the old adage "If they don't advertise it as having it then it probably does not have it." But does anyone know if this ex2 variant has dram? I have been poking around for a 512gb drive.
