Honestly this is a good thing -- let them figure out how to differentiate and better serve their customers. Obviously for SSDs using the same NAND and same controllers, that means mostly focusing on price, but perhaps there's more?There won't be any real discernable difference in terms of performance in 95% of cases.
this is really the most relevant answer. Right now, the price premium buys you a drive that can sustain write speeds longer. All SSD’s feel fast in normal usage. But if you plan on writing big files, and you know the size of those writes, than you can start looking at reviews for drives.There's Optane, but if 'best' means higher sustained transfer rates?
