I just bought the Pioneer 2TB e12 based drive in my SIG just a few weeks ago. Now I notice the 2TB model is gone of Amazon. The equivalent 2TB Inland "premium" model at Microcenter is gone too. I can't fine any of the "Old" Sabrent Rocket pci-e 3.0 2TB models listed anywhere either. Anyone know if Phison phased out all the reference 2TB E12 drives in the past couple weeks?

I would guess they are making room for the E16/PCIe 4.0 models. Not sure what the status is of the Toshiba NAND they were using on those Phison based drives for storage either. Might not be as easy to come by with newer/faster memory being needed for newer drives.

I concur, these appear to be going end of life. It makes sense, they are getting older and SSDs never have that long of a production run before something newer and faster or cheaper comes out.
