    They are more expensive than not only every other (bar Samsung Pro) SATA drive, but also a lot of M.2 drives, could do with measuring up against those. I know DC commands a premium, what with endurance promises and whatnot, but when it's 3x the price, it becomes hard to justify.

    Their pricing is in line with market pricing for Enterprise SSDs. All enterprise SSDs go through a much higher, stringent QC over their commercial counterparts. In commercial it's performance/size/dollar whereas enterprise markets add stability/endurance to that mix.

    In some cases you're mostly just paying for QC and guarantees, in some cases you are paying for better parts.
