DRAM-less and most likely QLC.
2100/1700 MB/s seq Read/Write
480TBW

I would say this would be good for a secondary/steam drive or for a general use laptop that needs lots of longer-term storage
The 480TBW means you shouldn't get this if you plan on a ton of writing and rewriting to this drive. That said, for most users this drive would outlast whatever system it's installed in.

I can't find anything better for within $25+. If cheap fast(er than SATA) large storage is your goal, this isn't bad.

I actually own that drive. Performance is about the same it seems. The TBW is the only improvement (TLC instead of QLC), but both are DRAM-less with SLC caching.

For only $10, not bad either.

What about MC Inland brand?
I have an Inland Professional (I think they make at least 3 lines all starting with a P, confusingly enough, there's a Premium and a Platinum) - It gets about the same speeds as this, I think (compared to, for example, the stock Kingston SSD that was installed in my MSI gaming laptop, it's quite fast though I don't expect it to keep up with something faster). Apparently 1600TBW so higher rated than these I believe, but a similar class. Now if you get Platinum the reads get much faster but the writes are not that much faster (slightly, I believe). Not sure if the TBW goes up. But the Premium line claims a 3200TBW which is strong and much better speeds (I think in the 3000+ MB/sec range). So I got the cheapest one I know of (on sale last year for 199 bucks) and I'm very happy with it. Haven't pushed it all that hard and I am probably going to get another faster/larger SSD because my stock one is only 512GB.

"The Kingston NV1 uses DRAMless SSD controllers..."
Def a hard pass, especially for a Gen 3 NVMe SSD.​
