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).

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

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.

The Emtec X200 that Walmart clearanced is not on that list. The datasheet for it is available, so could you add it?soupmaster666 wrote: ↑ There are more details available about the P34A80 and many many others on this spreadsheet, for those looking to compare different models: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... edit#gid=0
