If you have to send this in for repair/warranty after newegg basic warranty, you will pay return shipping back to Asia. Good Luck: https://www.teamgroupinc.com/en/s...rranty.php /Dylan

This is a review for EX2 not CX2...

This is the one I found, mediocre review but suitable for the price imo
https://www.guru3d.com/articles_p...ew,19.html
There's more to the story:

"The Team Group EX2 delivers fairly solid write speeds within its SLC cache. However, sustained write speeds tank drastically after the cache is full. The EX2 wrote 358GB worth of data at a rate of 460 MBps before degrading to snail-like speeds of just 15 MBps. Fortunately, the SSD implements fast cache recovery to regain some of that space if needed. After given just 30 seconds of idle time, the EX2 recovered roughly 100GB of its SLC cache. "

Will this slow to a crawl if you transfer large files?

"Team Group's EX2 is a low-cost SATA SSD that's great for light work but is outpaced by the slowest of HDDs in sustained write workloads" Tom's Hardware [tomshardware.com]

Cons: "Incredibly slow write speeds after cache files". TH says they measured 15 MB/s once the SLC cache fills, which is incredibly slow.

The GX/CX/EX/etc are all very similar, same controller. Different NANDs. Similar issues in performance. Measured speeds seldom meets the published specs in mixed use. Only sequential reads and writes (within the SLC cache limit) get anywhere near published specs.

They may come with QLC according to SSD Database despite the marketing.

Ok for cheap archival storage or to restore an old laptop that came with a sata hard drive and the price is hard to beat (that seems to be the TeamGroup business model these days).

Why is Team Group consistently the lowest price brand of SSDs and flash drives on SD? Low quality?

I have bought the 1tb for a family member itx build over a year ago. Best value for an SSD that has similar speeds as a Samsung 860 EVO.

It's basic business. Companies decide everyday whether they want to target low-end, mid, or high-end consumers. It often makes sense to not spread yourself too thin and concentrate on doing one thing well.

When it comes to SSDs, can you imagine being a startup (or young/small) company and trying to compete with global behemoths like Samsung in the high-end?

SD not allowing deals on their nearest value competitor Silicon Power to be posted might be one reason. Smilie

its a typo.... they don't have any benchmark against any hdd in the article.

any ssd will still be faster than any hdd even after cache depletion.
