You're a good man, @chatbox, I'm just reeling from NAND prices right now.

I very rarely find the Crucial P1 to ever be a good deal for what it is, unless you live in Alberta. The Sabrent Rocket Q is $170 and no tax and uses a way better controller.

I bought a WD SN750 for $170 on sale and an XPG (ADATA) SX8200 Pro for $180 regular price. Both are performing very well. If you're in a hurry then I'd go with the ADATA, it's a great value even at regular price.

It's E12, not S12. The Sabrent Rocket has moved to an E12s configuration, which is almost as good from a performance standpoint though it does get a bit warmer, it does have the perk of being single sided now in the 1TB configuration (previously it was only single sided up to 512GB). The A80 is now using an SM2262EN, same as the Adata, though I haven't seen benches since the switch.

Okay thanks. I wanted to move on the WD SN750 deal but it looks like it is back to $210.

Neither Adata nor Sabrent actually manufacture the drives. The drives are assembled by a third party manufacturer and a sticker gets slapped on. The quality will boil down to the product itself, not the company. Both the SX8200 Pro and Sabrent Rocket use quality parts so I wouldn't be worried about abnormally high failure rates, that's not to say they never fail but they're good products.REALBAUCE wrote: ↑ Okay thanks.

My concern with these drives is more reliability than performance. Are ADATA and Sabrent reliable brands for SSD? I've had a lot of dead ADATA usb sticks and I'm actually not familiar with Sabrent as a brand name
