Not a bad price for something cheaper than the ADATA X8200 Pros

Will go well with someone's Student Ryzen 2600


Blurb:
  • Super-fast PCIe Gen3x4 interface for read/write speeds of up to 3, 400MB/s/ 2, 300MB/s
  • Nvme 1. 3 support
  • Raid engine for enhanced data integrity
  • Slim form factor M. 2 2280 (80mm) for perfect fit in slim and portable mobile applications or desktop PCs
  • To support a Silicon Power PCIe SSD, the system must have an M. 2 connector with only an M key. The Silicon Power PCIe SSD does not have a b notch and therefore, the b key on the SSD connector will prevent it from being inserted
  • The custom screw should come with the motherboard or PC. Please acquire the screw from your motherboard or PC Manufacturer, if needed

Waited 2 weeks to see if this came on Prime Day. Glad I did.

Paid for it using £30 gift card voucher from activating the Newday credit card (which I'll never use). Also got given £20 voucher from Amazon because I signed up to Prime at £79 before it was £59. So actually paid nothing from this and still got vouchers to spare.

Overall a happy week with Amazon.

Forgot to mention got Amazon Prime through Vitality so not paying anything for Prime so that £20 voucher they gave me was all profit. 😝😝😝
Does this keep them speeds consistently when transfering large files, or is it one of those ones that has a cache and once you burn through the cache the speeds slow right down?
fantastic deal, tempted to buy another
Review for it I think on Tom's Hardware.
Bought on impulse hope it's good

I spent an hour writing and re-writing information I found on this drive as it's really just a mess. This drive as originally announced was supposed to be significantly slower, reliant on HMB, and coming with only a 3-year warranty. I surmise it was going to be like the HP EX900 in that case - the SM2263XT is the only controller that fully matched the original specifications.1 However, given the current specs as listed on the pages at both Amazon and Silicon Power (including a 5-year warranty on the latter), I have to believe they changed the hardware on this at the last moment.

Given that I believe they were going to go with the SM2263XT (and probably IMFT NAND) I would assume they are sticking with SMI for the controller, which means this drive would be SM2262EN-based. There is some evidence to support this, most obviously the 3,200/3,000 MB/s "up to" speeds. However, the product page also says "RAID engine for enhanced data integrity" which is a SMI technology. Worth noting is that the original announcement also lists this capability. Most typically this controller is paired with 64L 3D TLC NAND from IMFT (Intel/Micron) as found on the ADATA SX8200 Pro and HP EX950.2

That's my best guess given the information currently at hand. But I'm a bit nervous to recommend the drive as the specifications have changed and there are not currently any reviews or PCB images (beyond the DRAM-less oneprovided when it was announced) available. The SX8200 Pro has been $97.50 at this capacity with the 1TB SKU coming it at $178.49 recently; that makes this drive the best value for a SM2262EN drive, if it actually has that hardware.

Update: discovered a Russian source that confirms this drive was originally intended to use the SM2263XT. If (big if) the listed speeds are accurate, it is likely equipped with a SM2262EN instead.

They're getting very tempting. Hopefully we see the TB around £90 soon.
Deal requires a wait list now as 100% claimed.

That one is slower as it's PCIE 3 x 2 vs PCIE 3 x 4. Seq read/write: 1700/1450 vs 3400/2300.
Got this last month for £57 so a good deal.

Nice replacement drive for my MBP along with the Sintech adapter ;-)

What is the speed do you get from Macbook pro? which year is your MBP? i am thinking of replacing one rMBP 15" 2015

Macbook Pro Early 2015 A1502 13".

The 13" achieves slower speeds than the 15" so you should expect more than I get.

There's a huge thread on Macrumors:

Here's a video of the replacement process (it's realy easy) it's for the A1502 13" but the process is the same:

Nps Mark. The adapter I used (and seems to be the most compatible) is the Sintech (Sold by Sintech in China):
