Something that uses the Phison E12 controller like the PNY CS3030 or the Corsair Force MP510
I read this at guru 3d forums.

Hello,
So i made a mistake of ordering two MP510 960GB, i know this SSD series personally and own two 2tb drives it has good reviews and endurance.
Then for some reason i decided to google it by the product number from NEWEGG, and I was amazed that Corsair SILENTLY changed and updated the product and degraded its endurance from 1700TBW to 720TBW.
also the read IOPS was reduced from 610K to 280K but the write IOPS was bumped up to 700K from 570K
The main issue is that there are no reviews for the new one and no idea what controller they used, so if you have one, please share the info.

The original MP510 960GB CSSD-F960GBMP510
and the new MP510 960GB CSSD-F960GBMP510B

The reason I chose the original is because MP510 960GB was doing 1050MB/s sequential writes after SLC buffer which is the reason why i chose this SSD over Phison E16 PCIe Gen 4 ones that can be found for similar price but that in reality all of them slower no matter the model, after you fill the 360Gb buffer they ALL drop to 600MB/s , thats SATA speed.
It may be OK for home user that doesn't do long sequential writes but if you need one for long writes or 4K video capture where files are longer then 300GB buffer you'll "enjoy" SATA speeds on first gen PCIe Gen 4 SSD [Phison E16] and 1000MB/s on the new Phison that just recently came out, WD850 does 1340MB/s using own controller.
Samsung 980 Pro does 2000MB/s, even 970 EVO Plus of 1TB and larger does 1700MB/s after buffer [but sadly all Samsung drives of 1Tb come with 600TBW endurance]

I believe the SK gold P31 is still the fastest and most energy efficient. But it does cost more then some other options. So it is best to get it while it is on sale. :)

The Phison E12 drives are going to be more budget friendly. So you see them recommended a lot more.

I canceled the Inland Premium because somehow I got platinum and premium mixed up and I will order the SK Gold P31 I seen that it's 3200MB write. I cannot afford the inland platinum.

I read something similar for the corsair, look above.
I did read that after I posted, seems to be a trend. Annoying that they aren't required to change the model number when you're getting a different product.

I hope the sk gold p31 1TB is good, the specs look good, 3200MB write, 5 year warranty. But is 750TBW low for this ssd? I seen tbw's in the thousands for some m.2's.

I'm very far from being an expert on NVME, but at least 750TBW is not QLC level (Sabrent Rocket 1TB is 260TBW) and it is what they were claiming from the start. The review at Toms Hardware shows good performance, I think youll be fine.

P31 is a good drive. Unless you delete and reinstall your entire game library constantly or use it as a media scratch drive, it will take you forever to get close to 750TBW.

Just an offhand example I have an OS drive with over 3 years of power on time and its at around 16.5 TB Writes.

I've had dozens of SSD's over the years, and I always upgrade for a higher capacity drive well before they show any signs of issues.

Yup just OS install, os updates, games and apps. Then my pc be back up, cant wait. Im waiting on the m.2, an ek kit replace my L240 v1, barbs and clamps then I'll be getting it together. I have a 8TB ironwolf pro for data.

Wooeee cant wait. Hope it works the way amazon shipped my cpu mobo and ram, scary.

Waiting for stuff to come in is always hard

I've had some mixed results with amazon lately. My 5900x was just in a padded envelope but all the motherboards I've ordered recently were packaged decently.

Typically, it is 600TBW for a 1TB drive for one that uses TLC NAND. So anything at 600 or higher for a 1TB is very good.
