    Powered by a Phison 5012-E12 controller and paired with 3D QLC NAND Corsair offers something pretty staggering in relation to sheer NAND volume storage, as yes, they out their new MP400 series NVMe M2...

    Wow, lol, MTBF (Mean Time Before Failure) of 1.8 million hours or in other words 205 yrs - this is one NVMe stick you can pass on to your kids and grandkids and their kids and their kids & their kids......

    Nice review, there is also the MP400 8To that is inexpensive (at least for a 8To, around 1700 Euro) that exist in M2 too.
    It's nice to see big volume M2 that are not for pro segment, it will make price go down...

    As I understand games are not well optimised for SSD's and so when it comes to loading the difference between fast and slow is small and so it would be good if you could just get a cheap 4TB that is not lightening fast to cut the cost right down.

    They aren’t optimized YET. With the consoles moving to SSD standard it will make optimization better.

    lol
    MTB for a meltdown of a nuclear power plant is 1B years.
    how long did it take till Chernobyl happened?

    do you know there is a difference between theoretical (life) and real world?...
    what prevents it from dying the day after you started transferring all your photos?..

    If you believe that was a power plant melt down in Chernobyl then I have some ocean front property to sell you in Arizona.

    BTW your point is valid.

    It's nothing new just the age old, "Soviet Russia was doing nuclear weapons development at Chernobyl because the could hide the signature from spy satellites" theory. That would honestly be a better explanation that they just suck at running a power plant (or building one).

    I wrote around 3.5 TB to my hard-disk arrays just in the last week.
    800 TBW on a SSD wouldn't last me one summer of heavy shooting (video) ...

    I think that anyone who buys such a high-capacity drive actually has a need to use it, they don't buy it to browse the web and watch Youtube.

    Until write endurance on solid-state is in the order of many petabytes, SSDs are a hard bargain for data-heavy use...
    They are nice though to boot the OS and launch various software.

    Edit: OMG, stop it already with the nuclear crap and pointless comparisons !

    I just ordered a 4tb XPG (ADATA) SX8100 drive from newegg, on sale right now for $399. Best price I've seen for a nvme drive of that size. Can't speak on the reliability or performance yet but it also has a 5 year warranty. I don't need extreme performance or endurance but just wanted a high capacity drive that is faster than SATA3.

    this is fantastic. it's expensive, but not as much as enterprise. given the file size of modern games and their dlc, this is not nearly as much of a luxury if you're also storing media.
    despite game optimization (or lack thereof) ssd's are the standard now.
    idk of anyone (non-IT) in my circles in The Valley of Silicon that still is using HDD's outside of a NAS.

    They are not standard now. Untill OEMs and laptop ship only with EMC and SSD/NVME then you have your standard.
    Even as someone who has a 250GB NVME for OS, 3x 1tb SSD, I still have 3x 3tB mechanicals for storage other games in my rigs.

    When you can buy a basic SSD 3tb for $75 or less then you can say standards.

    SSD is almost standard in laptops now.

    Sounds about right. Where you're pulling this from?

    Almost does not count. SSD have been around for 12 years on the consumer level.
    It should not have taken this damn long to have 200gb ssd standard in a laptop.
    I still see prebuilt desktops everywhere without an SSD. And if they do, they are 120gb usually.

    Its just about as bad as OEMs selling computers with 512mb/1gb ram when vista launched with Vista installed.

    Well the mp400 4tb is listing for around £600 on ebay which is pretty good given its double the size of the mp600 2tb and less than double the current pricing of the mp600`s.
