    Whats going on with this drive? There are almost no reviews online and it's been out for month's. If what it claims to do is true how is nobody giving it a shot? That's like a 970 Pro at almost 1/3rd cost. I'd really like to know Random R/W speeds.

    I can't speak for the nvme/m.2 version but I've purchased 512gb and a 1tb sata silicon powered ssd's and they work pretty well. I'm guessing they skimp out on write endurance by quite a bit. I use the 1tb as a landing zone (write cache) for my drive bender array and it does the job. The write speeds aren't fantastic but the sure beat the pants off smr hdd's for random 4k writes.

    Not sure if they are using tlc or qlc in that ssd but i'd guess qlc. intel 660p's and crucial's p1 are both qlc and are both quite cheap for the storage you get but the write endurance is fairly low.

    No way is it QLC, not with those fast as hell read and write speeds.

    I, too, would like more info but I cannot find it anywhere including their own site. It is too bad because this looks to be a hell of a promising drive.

    It seems on paper to be a good unit. That said, I would probably go with the HP EX920 at this point (If price were my overriding concern.) You can get them on Amazon and the bay for just about the same price. While it's listed write speed isn't as fast as the SP (Though in real-world comparisons it is probably no different), I would expect support from HP to be more available for warranty issues. On The TweakTown Review, it had the fastest non-optane game load times of any NVME drive
