I was thinking something newer than a discontinued 840 EVO
Already have one of those but small.
Looking at SSDs to buy in 2019.
860 EVO is pricey as they want people to buy their QVO with QLC.
Crucial MX500 is a bit old now but still OK?
WD Blue 3D NAND?
Adata has bad reputation with SSDs now it seems same that other smaller brands had and have. Aka generic firmware with no customization by manufacturer, complete data loses, etc.
Even Samsung took a while to get the firmware OK.
There are so many drives I keep finding but no review site has them all in their results, not even close. Some are new fast drives but hard to find to buy, some places have them well priced some not at all.
There are the QLC Crucial P1, Intel 660p but then you look at barely more expensive Corsair Force Series MP510 TLC and WTH just happened.
Durability almost 10x better, performance 2x, ... so what are the nice newer drives worth actually buying in 2019? Are there some nice new MLC/TLC SSDs be it for Gen3x4 or simple old SATA beside this MP510?
Plus I don't necessarily need an M.2 drive, a good SATA is fine but then the price has to reflect it which it seems now M.2 3.0x2/3.0x4 are so close to SATA in price it barely makes sense to buy SATA anymore...
