You mean Civic/Corolla/Mazda3 ;) choice of NVME. Then it is WD SN550. And Silicon Power is like Tata, Donfeng, FAW and other unpronauncable low quality Chinese / Indian car brands.

Silicon Power isn't really using no name parts though. The original P34A80 had the same parts as the Corsair MP510 (though the Corsair did over-provision the drive, kinda useless for most consumers), which is a better drive than the SN550. I've heard reports that they switched the controller from a Phison E12 to a Silicon Motion SM2262EN, which would make it more similar to an Adata SX8200 Pro. Not a fan of the 512GB variant, due to it's much smaller cache, but the 1GB would still beat an SN550 easily. I prefer the Sabrent Rocket though since it still uses a Phison E12s (same as the E12 but smaller, albeit a little hotter, make the 1TB single sided though).

I bought the same NVME that op posted last boxing day at Best Buy. I paid $79.99 as I had some gift cards to use. It works great and no complaints at all. I did use it for a cheap build I was building as a 500gb SSD was almost the same price at the time.

It's not the same NVMe. Silicon Motion swapped out the controller a few months back, the old one was better.

What's so bad about the new controller?

It's not bad, it's just the old one was better. The new one is an SMI 2262EN, same controller that's in the SX8200 Pro. The controller's drawbacks are easier to trigger at lower capacities though. Sabrent switch to the Phison E12s (new version of the E12, which is what the P34A80 used to use) so I think that's the better buy now.

When they can't get speed right in description I don't consider it to be serious product: (or at least don't use the same generic description for different SSD sizes)
Silicon Power 512GB NVMe PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 TLC R/W up to 3,400/2,300 MB/s
Super-fast PCIe Gen3x4 interface for read/write speeds of up to 3,200MB/s / 3,000MB/s
Data Transfer Rate 3400 Megabits Per Second
it reaches incredible read and write speeds of up to 3400MB/s and 3000MB/S
