    In this article, we'll tackle the new P1 NVMe SDD from Crucial. This review is a bit special in the sense that the product makes use of that all new QLC NAND flash memory, that's 4-bits per cell wri...

    I hadn't much trust in QLC, but this looks surprisingly good in the review, just like Hilbert remarked. Maybe it wouldn't be a mistake to get one, after all. I'll need to keep my eyes open the coming Black Friday for any M.2 (NVMe) SSD offerings. If this one already finds its way there, it wouldn't be an impossible buy to consider, after all.

    +1 for PCIe 3.0 x4 interface even while drive itself is not that fast... Finally drive for 2nd slot on all those AM4 boards.
    -1 for Price which is same as ADATA XPG SX8200 as that is actually faster. (It should be at least 10% cheaper.)
    +1 Good IOPS even while it is slower on read side.

    another review knocked out of the park.
    i'm never tired of HH saving me time, money, and disappointment with the reviews here.

    what i'm very curious about (esp. after that 80 deg. reading) is the performance of the Silicon Motion controller vs Phison and HP.
    HP is using the same (i think) silicon, but in any case the Toshiba is also very close. so with the QLC which controller shall reign supreme?
    yikes...i guess i watched too much "Iron Chef".

    That particular drives' flash memory is made by micron but they are 2 completely separate companies
