This is only a 2x and I think it's using an older controller from 2017 when I looked at this drive. There is a reddit thread somewhere started in 2017 or early 2018 where they discuss this drive, but the performance was o-k ... nothing special and it didn't generate a lot of interest. Considering how much faster the other drive is, the premium version and at the same price. .. you should stay the hell away from this one.
Yeah that's based on an older Phison E8 controller. It probably wouldn't be bad if you needed cheap SSD storage in a USB / Thunderbolt enclosure.This is only a 2x and I think it's using an older controller from 2017 when I looked at this drive.

Thanks!Anandtech also just reviewed this Phison E12 powered variant:
Amazon is selling the 512 GB variant for the same price of $74.99 that MicroCenter is doing the Inland Premium 512 GB for. For people who don't want to schlep to MicroCenter this may be worth it..
Out of stock at both Atlanta locations. Was gonna get one too.
Fuck it. Gonna order the Gigabyte 4 slot NVME raid card for my Thredripper and run 4 of 4 on the card and 2 on the mobo. Raid 0 all of them
3300 x 6 = fuck you insane speed.
2950x still have lanes left over lmao
I have 64 pcie highways
8x Intel 10g nic
4x6nvme = 24 reduced to 16 because of card.
That's only 40lanes...
Need more shit on my board.
Maybe a second GPU or two. Damn that's alot of lanes when you add it all up.
I jest. I just want one drive Haha
Hell you paid a lot less than I did. I paid $160+ in store with tax, actually once I get my $10 refund I will be closer to what you paid.Well...I was just able to order one of the 1TB thru the web store. Came out to 152 shipped.
Hey man, link that PCI card would you. I was actually going to do this myself on a build until someone told me I wouldn't get the desired "hardware" raid speeds on my Asus x370 ... I had the Asus Hyper M.2 x16 Card and a few drives but abandoned that project before I got the card fully populated with the drives I wanted to and any real use.
I'm seriously considering 4 x of these Phison E12 512GB drives now @ $75 each ..... 2TB @ 12,000MB/s read and write? Are you fukking kidding me and for only $350? LOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTT. Man.
I don't think I have 16x PCI lanes to spare ... I might send you a PM man.
Also, the Asus Hyper M.2 x16 Card is 2+ years old now ......
Here is where I picked up my Asus Hyper M.2 a while back
Write speed is 33% faster than the EVO and that $100 ... that would damn near buy you 16GB of DDR4 3200mhz memoryWish I would of known web orders are available. Web page says in store only. :/ FAIL!
I just bought a 1tb 970 evo plus the other day from there locally.
Would I notice a difference other then $100 back?
That one is only 2x so it’s not the same as the 512GB and 1tb 4x models.
Yea I think I am going to give the SP on Amazon a chance. I do have prime, and it’s not a 2 hour drive to return it etc.Yes, for the 1 TB version, $15 more- 512 GB version is the same price as MC, and if you have Amazon Prime already your shipping is very likely much faster.
Amazon reviews look generally positive, with maybe the few negative reviews coming from people with older PCIe onboard
The Silicon Power unit probably looks identical to the Inland Premium unit if you remove SP's big sticker.
MC says they're not even shipping my part for 2 days, I doubt they have the whole automated conveyor belt with hundreds of robots skittering around in a factory, just disgruntled workers in a dusty abandoned warehouse or something.
MC's warranty would be for them to take another SSD, same part, take it out of packaging, slap your defective in the package, give you the 'new' one, return the package to the vendor and get credit.
I love micro enter but this is so trueThe 1 TB Inland Premium, according to FedEx, will get to me by Tuesday, 3/19. It took them 24 hours just to get the FedEx label printed?!
Yeah, at least with Amazon they get on the ball right away. With MicroCenter it's like one guy trying to co-ordinate the Invasion Of Normandy or something.
W10 will recognize it not problem. It shouldn’t be any different than any other nvme drive. As long as your board has a native nvme slot.To save a $100 on the drive cost me the new build this weekend as now I'll need to wait till Monday/Tuesday as I've not decided to go all petg tubing with the dual water cooling setup.. haha about time as I've been using soft tube for prob 20 years.
Windows 10 should recognize the new drive durring install correct? Update those drivers or whatever after?
Should use it as the os drive? My asus z390 mb has 2 m.2 slots but afraid something will not work or conflict with a sound card and usb 4 port pci-e card in there as well.
Is that a thing of the past and one can use the 2 m.2 drives no problem? I have a samsung 512gb 950 m.2 drive I could use as well if possible.
I doubt you would have any conflicts, I'd think the worst that could happen is you would not hit maximum speed due to how your mb divies up the pcie lanes. Your motherboards manual should explain limitations on its slots and ports etcShould use it as the os drive?
