That is older, slower drive but for the money it's an INSANE deal. Nesrly ~35-40% cheaper then the top of the line model that was $139 if you can find them in stock.

I bought the 480gb version last year as a game drive for my laptop for $50. Been fine for that. I'm starting to think I need a TB for games :)

Cheap SSD. Don't expect Samsung speed or quality. But so far, so good.

How would these work as an unraid cache, storage for plex transcodes and plex appdata? Would I be served better by getting something a little faster?

For cache purposes, speed is important so I wouldn't cut corners on getting on of these new vs a faster drive used.

I am using 2x 480GB version of this drive as a Unraid cache and have had no issue. I have plex transcoding, all appdata, downloads, etc on there.

Not sure if its the same drive internals but I have had the 240gb setup for my plex appdata folder in windows box for a few years with no troubles/ pretty speedy.

Looks like there is no cache (or a very small one based on reviews for the Phison S11 controller).

This drive slows down pretty fast. I get about 3gb of decent transfer speed then it falls on its face (~100mb/s speeds) during data transfers.

It really sucks that the faster TLC version of these drives was a little over $100 at this time last year, now they are $150.00.

Glad I bought 4 of the e12 phison 1TB drives last year. These are great drives!

Keep in mind this is SATA, not NVME. I'd skip this and get an NVME personally. I have a regular inland sata drive (not m.2) for a couple years and no issues. They're good drives for sure, have yet to see any people report issues with any inland drives. The prices are great in general for the inland drives.

Tried two of these SATA drives in my son's Asrock X470 Gaming K4 about a year ago (one from Amazon, one from Microcenter) and they would not be detected. Ended up having to go with an Adata 1TB SSD. I have the NVME version in my desktop and love it.
