Apacer Intros AS350 Panther Entry-Level SATA SSD

Apacer introduced the AS350 Panther solid-state drive, beginning (we hope) with a 120 GB variant. Built in the 7 mm-thick 2.5-inch form-factor with SATA 6 Gb/s interface, the drive features 120 GB of TLC NAND flash memory. It offers sequential transfer rates of up to 440 MB/s reads, with up to 125 MB/s writes, and 4K random access performance of up to 26,000 IOPS. The drive could take up an entry-level price-point, and is backed by a 3-year warranty.

125MB writes... I know they aren't that important, but c'mon, it's been years since we've maxxed SATA3 and yet they still release garbage like this. One would expect all SATA SSD's without exception to be reaching 500+ in both directions, be it cheap or top end. This is just lazy and unless this costs like 50€ for 512GB, it's worthless pile of crap.

Unless it's in $35 ballpark, there is no reason to even look at it.
With Apacer's current pricing they are losing to almost every brand in " best bang for the buck", or even "as cheap as it gets" categories.
Heck, nowadays you can get 3D NAND drives with 500/400 RW in $60 range, or a decent 120-128GB MLC for $50-$60 or so.
