Amazon pricing history

The lowest pricing it has ever been on Amazon!



There are two versions of this,one with the Phison E16 controller(has DRAM) and the newer version with the InnoGrit RainierQX/IG5220 which is DRAMless but might be faster(but slower in transfer speeds) and has lower write endurance.

    I have one of these and it has immense TBW - 3600TB for the 2TB model.


    OK,I am really annoyed - it seems they have recently introduced a lower TBW model this year without much fanfare,ie,the 2TB model is 1200TBW which is still decent but not the same as the previous one:

    So you could get either of the models,so I apologise for not spotting this earlier. None of the reviews seem to be for the newer one. (edited)

    As it happens it looks like those Austrian's are on to them:
    as they have updated the spec pages.
    They call the new one the rev. 2022 with these item numbers:
    Seagate FireCuda 520 SSD +Rescue 2TB, M.2, Rev. 2022 (ZP2000GV30012 / ZP2000GV3A012)
    Seagate FireCuda 520 SSD 2TB, M.2 (ZP2000GM30002 / ZP2000GM3A002)
    The latter is the 3,600 TBW endurance champion. The top one just a normal 1,200 TBW one.

    Damn I was tempted by this but ended up with the WD bros. Like the idea of the TBW for a secondary drive. 4Tb is enough, though feel addicted to more nvMe storage...

    Seagate have quietly introduced a V2 version this year with a 1200TBW without telling anyone. So there is probably a mix of the 1200TBW and 3600TBW model out there now!

    I paid this price for 1TB version in January. Bought a heatsink on eBay for £8. All good. Heat. (edited)

    Cannot wait until we get 20TB ones like HDDs.

    waiting for 530 to drop in price.....
    KITTYBOTS's avatar
    It did recently but only for a very brief period. The FireCuda 520 has a higher TBW and is better for situations where you are writing a lot to the drive.

    Which is better out of this and this?
    Fintan_Colaco's avatar
    yeah I'd like to know
  10. RukasuMi's avatar
    i said i would wait for 2tb pcie 4 to be 100 pound but this is the sort of drive i want
  11. Rudz's avatar
    I got ZP2000GV30012 which is the 1200TBW version, so going back unfortunately
    karablitz's avatar
    I thought this as well but realistically how much rewriting are you going to do?
