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

- Amazon Canada
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):
