    Armed with the Phison E18 controller, is this the fastest consumer SSD of them all?

    Based on those test results, clearly not.

    Re: Corsair MP600 Pro SSD (2TB)

    Because of the way drives do different sort of provisioning I wonder how the 1TB version would look against the Black. Although the 30 quid price difference for what equates to a benchmark-only noticeable difference makes the point kinda moot.

    Still not a fan of the 4.0 premium tho

    In theory the E18 controller should perform better when paired with the newer (and faster) 176 layer Micron NAND, something which we've seen some previews of already. This first generation of E18 drives paired with 96 layer Micron NAND looks to be a fairly short-lived stopgap.

    Of course, all of this seems to be overkill when dealing with consumer PCs doing consumer things.

    Honestly it's nice to see the speed increases, but capacity and pricing seriously needs to drop for most end users.

    There have been some good QLC drives coming out. Most end users don't need the endurance / performance of TLC and, with sufficient overprovisioning and wear levelling, I'm sure QLC would be more than adequate for a browsing / word processing machine.

    I'm sure a much cheaper PCIE3 drive would be more than adequate for a browsing / word processing machine.

    The Bad

    Basic software support
    Did you try doing a drive migration with their software? I did recently on an MP510, they *really* need to sort that junk out. I gave up, and started a thread on here to ask about alternatives.

    I must have missed that thread. Not sure what was recommended but I've had success with EaseUS Todo's free version for drive backups or clones.

    Feels like last week, but blimey that was a month ago now: https://forums.hexus.net/storage/423...ware-woes.html

    TLDR: Corsair software sucked, ik9000 pointed me at aeomi backup software which for free was both easy to use and actually worked. Then I needed another drive, and got a WD Black 750 which was faster, slightly higher capacity, cheaper, came with a free game and the migration software worked on a live Windows install first time. My new VR game that triggered needing a capacity update finally got installed and is pretty good

    Agreed, £200 for 1TB is just too much for most use cases. Plenty of great drives for half the price
