Are chinese M.2 NVMe disks any good?

Ralf

Are those Apacer AS2280Q4, Lexar NM790, Patriot VIPER VP4300 Lite, Verbatim Vi7000G any good? I know that Verbatim was very good when I bought floppy disks and CDs

For SSDs, I would not place any trust in the brand name. These days an SSD is basically just three components (controller, DRAM, NAND) and usually the brand of the SSD does not make any of these components. So to do your research you have to look at what components is under the hood for these drives.

 

In my experience drives you find on AliExpress have one of two controllers (MaxioTech MAP1602A or Innogrit IG5236) and couple types of DRAM (YMTC 232-layer TLC, Micron 176-layer TLC). The Innogrit controller supports DRAM, but has many reports of disk failures. The MaxioTech controller is newer, does not support DRAM, but does not have any of those reports.

 

The Lexar NM790 is MaxioTech + YMTC and has great performance and efficiency for the price: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/lexar-nm790-4-tb/

lexar and patriot sound fammilar but I would never buy off brand nvme drives cuz they may not be reliable. It is always better to spend some more money to keep your data safe on brands like samsung, WD, Kingston, corsair etc.
