[Amazon Canada] Silicon Power 1TB NVMe 3,400/3,000MB - HOT at $131.74

Update: This drive is back in stock at Amazon.ca as of 2019-08-15!

The Silicon Power 1TB NVMe PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 SSD is selling for $131.74 for the 1TB, a $68.25 price drop from its normal price of $199.99. This is the lowest price it has been to date and is a very hot deal for a 1TB TLC NVMe at this class of high performance drive as it has far better performance and longevity than the QLC based 660p, P1, etc that it is priced similar to.

This drive has a 5 year warranty and is based on the highly regarded Phison E12 firmware with Toshiba BiCS3 TLC NAND flash: its in the same family and provides similar performance to the well respected Corsair Force Series MP510 (on sale at NewEgg.ca for $169.99 but out of stock atm). This Silicon Power drive has more usable space, however, at 1024GB compared to the MP510's 960GB. This is a higher end drive that competes with but performs somewhat less than the outstanding 970 EVO Plus and WD Blacks of the world but at a fraction of the cost. It has pretty good reviews such as this one at Anandtech. These drives are fast in sequential read/writes but also decent at random 4k read/writes. Even better, its 5 year warranty includes an outstanding 1665 TBW.

Full drive speed as tested by AnandTech in above linked review (with ADATA SPG SX8200 Pro/Gammix S11 Pro and Intel 660p/Crucial P1 for comparison):

How does this ($175 after taxes) compare to the XPG GAMMIX S11 Pro 1TB ($185 after taxes)?

https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07KZNTZYB/ref ... qDbYT4Z62N
The XPG Gammix S11 Pro and ADATA SX8200 Pro (same drive, different heatsink) use the inferior Silicon Motion SM2262EN which tanks when the drive reaches anywhere near full capacity (experienced this personally). See Anandtech's review here and here as well as others, such as the review in the first post. Beyond that, the warranty for this drive is simply outstanding at 5 years or 1665 TBW - very high for this segment (compared to the 640 TBW of the Gammix, etc).

So, this or the Corsair (other than less storage)?

Whichever you can find cheaper, really. Very similar to each other as they both use the same firmware and chips... The Corsair is simply over-provisioned more than the Silicon Power. In actual use (and at the TBW warranty provided) it makes no practical difference.

Thanks for the info, the SP is cheaper for me. You seem like you know what you are talking about, do you think this price will fall in a couple months?

Wondering if its because this item is set as PST exempt, but since Ontario charges HST there is no way to separate it out
