480 TBW is a little hard to stomach on 2TB, given future growth in write intensities.

Good deal, but I'll wait for the better stuff to get cheaper.

Lexmark had some of the worst budget SSDs outside of no names like Kingfast.

Here are some benchmarks: https://baijiahao.baidu.com/s?id=1741466581347743031. Rough English translation: https://inf.news/en/digital/d340cffb96b ... a863e.html

This drive seems to be more abundant in China. There are a few reviews from searching around on Baidu and BiliBili.

Seems quite good for $130. Although I would personally opt for Kingston NV2 when it's discounted again. Chances are both these drives are QLC.

I bought it yesterday as my gaming drive. I don't know what other people are complaining about.. at 2TB it is marginally more expensive than 2TB SATA SSDs but with 10x speed.

Would I use it for OS primary drive? Probably not. But I wouldn't hesitate to use it as a secondary drive.

agree, for non-boot drive... its a fantastic for downloads, torrent, games, scratch drive.... especially at the price. yeah the speeds arent top tier, and the TBW is lower, but who cares.

Get a few years of usage out of it, then replace with a larger faster and cheaper drive eventually when the time comes.

people act like they are keeping drives for a lifetime. Sure I have some ssds from 2007/2008 when 32gb cost far more than this. But after owning dozens and dozens over the years, I would bet most people do not need the speeds they think they do, and also care far too much about a TBW number they will not even use a fraction of.

prices will keep decreasing, and speeds and capacity will keep going up.

I got the Team Group MP34 1T for $80 last week from Amazon, should I return that and getting this one for $50 more to double the size? The speed specs looks similar, but MP34 had Dram, not sure how much difference that makes. I am not sure if I need the 2T capacity, but it's tempting. I wish the sale is on Amazon, wait, does it have free shipping with Canada Computers?

MP34 also have 1660 TBW for their 1TB version, it really depends on your use case

Don't buy this SSD, the write speed will drop to about 30MB/s after about 500G of space is used.

It's not strictly about the TBWs as much as the overall failure rate of these very low quality SSDs.

Many things can factor into the TBW calculation, warranty cost calculation, controller longevity, NAND endurance. Sometimes these considerations differ across companies.

I'm just skipping this one, super low TBWs are a red flag for too many other risks.

Thank you, OP.

Any storage can fail, could be hdds, cheap flash on sdcards/usb sticks, or the varying qualities of nand on ssds.

First off, all data that is important should have a backup strategy, as failure can happen to any regardless of specs.

Second, buy the right storage for the job. Jobs that require intense write speeds, or continuous writing, then this drive and other "lower quality" may not be recommended.

There are lots of uses for cheap, high capacity drives that have good read performance.

Not everyone needs a 980pro or sn850 for all applications.

This Seems like it is perfectly fine for a boot drive. I don't see why not care to explain?

lack of dram is why I would avoid boot drive usage. Some might also be wary due to cheaper nand as their primary drive

Thank you! From what I have read on this thread, sounds like the TWB spec may not be important to everyone, but it implies the overall quality of a SSD drive, in this case the mp34 could be a much more superior drive than this Lexar one. With 1660TBW(1TB) vs 480TBW(2TB), if I understand correctly, the mp34 can be written 1660 times and the NM610pro only can be written 240 time before failure as per manufacture spec, that's a big difference. If that's the case, I am definitely going to keep the mp34, 1TB is probably good enough for my laptop.

Yes, you made a wise choice.

The Lexmark has it's market, but I don't generally recommend the OP drive.
